Vladimir Putin has put “all six carriers of Russian cruise missiles lined up in the Black Sea” and it is very likely Russia are “preparing for a massive launch of missiles” in Ukraine.
This comes as Putin’s air force has “underperformed” in the Ukraine and there is now a “serious hazard of rocket attacks on Ukraine.”

Ukraine 24 said, “All six carriers of Russian cruise missiles lined up in the Black Sea and are most likely preparing for a massive launch of missiles on the territory of Ukraine.”
They added, “Oleksiy Arestovych, Adviser to Ukraine’s President, agrees not to ignore the air alarm signals in the next four days, especially in Pechersk district of Kyiv where the ‘decision-making centres’ are located.”
Ukrainian state-media outlet Ukrinform said, “In addition to two Russian missile ships, three submarines and three large landing crafts are remaining in the Black Sea.
“The enemy is ready to launch 28 cruise missile strikes from the sea.”
Ministry of Defence (MoD) said, “In the conflict to date, Russia’s air force has underperformed.
“Its failure to consistently deliver air power is likely one of the most important factors behind Russia’s very limited campaign success.
“It cannot gain full air superiority and has operated in a risk-averse style, rarely penetrating deep behind Ukrainian lines.
“Some of the underlying causes of its difficulties echo those of Russian Ground Forces.
“For years, much of Russia’s air combat training has highly likely been heavily scripted and designed to impress senior officials, rather than to develop dynamic initiative amongst air crews.”
