Russia still has about 900 precision-guided missiles after massive attacks on Ukraine, Air Force spokesperson Yuriy Ihnat said during the national telethon program on Jan. 28.

"According to the latest data, they [still have] about 900 long-range precision missiles," the Air Force spokesman said.

The Russian military used almost all the missiles they managed to produce after previous attacks.

"So, they mostly use what they produce,” said Ihnat.

“That is why the number has remained at this level.”

The Russian army also has a large number of S-300 anti-aircraft missiles, which they use to fire at ground targets, particularly in Kharkiv Oblast, as well as an array of other kinds of missiles.

Ihnat had previously reported, on Dec. 15, that at that time Russia had about 900 high-precision long-range missiles.

Earlier, the head of Ukrainian intelligence, Kyrylo Budanov, said that, under favorable conditions, Russia can produce up to 50 X-101 and Kalibr missiles per month, with one large-scale missile attack taking one and a half to two months to produce enough weapons for.

During its massive missile attacks from Dec. 29 to Jan. 23, the Russian military fired at least 250 missiles of various types at Ukraine.
