Ukraine’s Main Intelligence Directorate (HUR) representative Andriy Yusov in an interview for RBC-Ukraine said that the Russian Federation continues to produce missile weapons, but can’t return to the level of reserve stockpiles it had before the start of the full-scale invasion.

“They are not even close to returning to the level of the reserves that they had as of February 23, 2022,” said Yusov. “But still, production is underway. Over the past few months, there have been relatively few missile strikes, which means that they can accumulate them for the next massive strikes,” but repeated that it’s not enough to restore its lost arsenal of weapons.

"But then [before the start of a full-scale invasion, its arsenal] was relatively small. The key here is how much they spent and how many modern weapons they can produce,” Yusov said.


“So, they really increased the production of missiles in some areas. But does it allow you to restore your lost arsenal? No.”

According to him, Russia intended to receive ballistic missiles from Iran. However, this hasn’t been independently confirmed.

Yusov said: “And this, by the way, also confirms the lack of stockpiles of these weapons the Kremlin has. But then the situation is being monitored.”
