The Ukrainian president also announced on Thursday that the crisis in the Middle East between Israel and Hamas had slowed the delivery of missiles destined for Kiev.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on November 16 that Russia was assembling missiles to attack Ukraine in the winter. The Ukrainian president also says that the ongoing crisis in the Middle East has slowed the delivery of missiles to Kiev.
He added, “I think they are storing (missiles), but they do not have many more missiles than before. Otherwise, they would have started the bombing already.”
Ukraine expects a new campaign of Russian attacks on its energy grid as was the case last winter, when millions of Ukrainians were left without heat or electricity in freezing temperatures.
“Winter will be difficult”
“I think we are better prepared for the winter than before,” Volodymyr Zelensky said. He added: “But I do not think that Russia will use fewer weapons.” “Winter will be difficult.”
“In terms of air defense, we are in a better position than last winter,” Volodymyr Zelensky said. According to him, the Ukrainian army was able to shoot down “75-80%” of the Iranian-made drones that Russia often uses against its neighbor, especially during its night attacks.
