The head of the United Coordination Press Center of the Defense Forces of Southern Ukraine, Nataliya Gumenyuk, said this on the air of the telethon.
“Today, we estimate the total volley of missiles on board all 6 missile carriers, which are currently on combat duty in the Black Sea, to 44 missiles. We are talking about the fact that the missile danger remains relevant. Because being at sea in combat positions, equipment and such number – all this may indicate the continuation of missile attacks,” she said.
According to Humenyuk, 44 missiles are the maximum possible volley for the six missile carriers that are in the sea: “Because after the 14th, part of the missiles were used, and after that only one boat entered the base point. All the rest remained in place.”
The head of the Joint Coordination Press Center of the Defense Forces added that the highest number of Russian missiles in the Black Sea recorded during the full-scale invasion was 48 units.
- On January 15, it was reported that during the massive missile attack on Ukraine on January 14, Russia used only half of the Kalibr missiles that it had prepared in the Black Sea for the strike.
- On January 16, Humenyuk said that the presence of Russian missile carriers in the Black Sea on combat duty and equipped with missiles accelerates the moment of a new attack.
