Russia still has a large stockpile of long-range missiles and the latest Ukrainian estimates suggest Moscow’s production capacity is sufficient to maintain current levels.

As of the latest estimates, Russia possesses approximately 870 high-precision missiles with operational-strategic and strategic potential, capable of striking targets at distances exceeding 350 kilometres, Major General Vadim Skibitsky, a representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of Ukraine (HUR), said in an interview with "RBK-Ukraine".

The breakdown of missile types in Russian arsenals, as provided by Skibitsky, is as follows:

  • 165 Kalibr missiles
  • 160 units of X-101, X-555, and X-55 missiles with warheads
  • 290 Iskander-M and Iskander-K missiles
  • 80 Dagger missiles
  • 150 X-22/X-32 missiles

Notably, Skibitsky highlighted that these figures are consistent with last year's missile inventory, suggesting that Russia can continue missile production and maintain a sufficient stockpile.


"It is clear that the Russians cannot fully use their missiles either — they must keep at least 30% in their reserves. If they release almost everything on our energy system again and do not achieve results, then someone will be kicked out from the office [Russian Defense Ministry - ed.] again," Skibitsky said.

Recent Russian production figures

In October, according to Skibitsky, Russia reportedly manufactured around 115 high-precision missiles with a range exceeding 350 kilometres. This production breakdown includes:

  • Approximately 20 "Kalibr" missiles
  • About 40 X-101 missiles

Additionally, Russia is producing around 30 Iskander-M ballistic missiles and 12 Iskander-K cruise missiles monthly. They are also engaged in the modernization of X-22 missiles, converting them into X-32 missiles, with a monthly output of approximately 9 units.

Since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, Ukraine regularly conducts strikes on targets in Russia, but a source in Ukrainian intelligence said Kyiv wasn’t involved in this strike.

Concerning "Kinzhal" missiles, the HUR reported that Russia produced four missiles in October.

There are also indications that Russia is working on upgrading Onyx anti-ship missiles to repurpose them for ground targets.

The local manufacturing of 'Shahed' kamikaze drones is also underway, particularly at the Yelabuga plant.

Skibitsky clarified that this facility primarily handles the final assembly of kamikaze drones known as "Geran-2."


However, other related factories in Russia contribute by supplying components for these combat UAVs.
