Missile attacks on Ukraine

Since the early days of Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the occupiers have been using tactics of mass missile strikes. They use ballistic missiles, kamikaze drones, and hypersonic weapons.

The Russian forces are changing the airfields where their aircraft are based. Since the start of the Ukrainian counteroffensive, the Russians have transferred some of their strategic aviation aircraft to an airfield near the city of Mozdok in North Ossetia.

They are also attempting to employ new tactics. During yesterday's mass attack on Ukraine, they used aviation in the Kryvyi Rih direction. The enemy is indeed trying to find ways to bypass Ukraine's air defense system.
