Russia has less than 30% of high-precision missiles left in inventory

Oct 14, 2022

Russia has 25-28% of high-precision missiles left from the number that it had before the full-scale military invasion of Ukraine on February 24.

This was stated by Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) Oleksiy Danilov in an interview with Radio NV.

Danilov stressed that Ukrainian intelligence is working impeccably, so with a slight margin of error, it is possible to give the number of remaining high-precision missiles in the Russian Federation.

“We are talking about the high-precision ones that are the most troublesome for us. I can’t give you the absolute numbers you want me to say. But if we take percentages, we are talking about 25-28% of the total number that they had as of February 24,” said the head of the NSDC.

As for Soviet-made missiles like the S-300, the Russian Federation still has some, but far fewer than at the beginning of the invasion on February 24.

Oleksiy Danilov stressed that Russia is weakening from day to day.

The head of the NSDC recalled that Ukraine had been asking Western partners for air defense equipment since October-December of last year. We kept asking in January, February, and March.

“Unfortunately, we did not receive an answer from the countries back then. Because not a single country had information that we would stand, we would fight, and we would put up a crazy resistance. However, today the situation is changing, the number of helping countries is increasing,” Danilov said.
