“For nearly two weeks, the enemy has not launched massive missile strikes, however, this pause may end at any time,” the spokeswoman continues, stressing that the Ukrainian army is strengthening protection at power plants and other critical infrastructure.
“Russia has also strengthened its presence in the Black Sea,” Gomenyuk noted.
The Ukrainian official concluded, saying, “There are 21 ships, including 4 Caliber missile carriers, with a total of 24 missiles, and since there are also two submarine carriers, it is difficult for us to monitor missile launches, so warnings of air strikes must be dealt with seriously.” .
On February 24, Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine, which was followed by angry international reactions and the imposition of “tough” economic and financial sanctions on Moscow.
Russia requires to end the process Ukraine’s abandonment of any plans to join military entities, including NATO, and its commitment to complete neutrality, which Kyiv considers “interfering with its sovereignty.”
