Kremlin Now Using ‘Unstoppable’ Weapons to Batter Ukraine
Is this is a sign of things to come?
Now that we’ve all witnessed an entire year of the Russian army trying to knock the rust off of their 70 year old tanks and Cold War Era rifles, it has become rather obvious that our fears of Moscow as a military superpower were all for naught….besides the nukes.
This was rather obvious from the start, but what little misplaced pity we might have had for the young men that the Kremlin tricked into dying in Ukraine has already been wiped clean by the genocidal barbarism of a desperate Russia.
Now, with rumors swirling regarding Russia’s stockpile of munitions, Putin’s commanders have resorted to unleashing some of the nation’s most high-tech weapons.
A barrage of more than 80 Russian missiles and a smaller number of exploding drones hit residential buildings and critical infrastructure across Ukraine on Thursday, killing six people and leaving hundreds of thousands without heat or electricity.
The largest such attack in three weeks also put Europe’s largest nuclear plant at risk by knocking it off the power grid for nearly half of the day before it was reconnected. Because nuclear reactors need constant power to run cooling systems to avoid a meltdown, the latest power loss at the Zaporizhzhia plant again raised the specter of a nuclear catastrophe.
Air raid sirens wailed through the night as the attacks targeted a wide swath of the country, including western Ukraine, which is far from the front lines. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said the assault that came while many people slept was “another attempt by the terrorist state to wage war against civilization.”
The Russian Defense Ministry said the strikes were in retaliation for a recent incursion into the Bryansk region of western Russia by what Moscow claimed were Ukrainian saboteurs. Ukraine denied the claim and warned that Moscow could use the allegations to justify stepping up its own assaults.
The remarkable escalation included allegedly “unstoppable” hypersonic projectiles.
Overall, Russia launched 81 missiles and eight exploding Iranian-made Shahed drones Thursday, according to Ukraine’s chief commander of the armed forces, Valerii Zaluzhnyi. Thirty-four missiles were intercepted, as were four drones, he said. The mixture of munitions makes it harder for air defenses to cope with the onslaught, military analysts say.
Among the weapons were six hypersonic Kinzhal cruise missiles, which are among the most sophisticated weapons in the Russian arsenal, Ukrainian air force spokesman Yurii Ihnat said. Ukraine says its air defenses cannot intercept them.
The use of the Kinzhal missiles could simply be signaling Russia’s commitment to escalating the war at all costs, or that the Kremlin is running out of cheaper, less-specialized munitions.
Given the recent developments in Ukraine, we’re likely to find out sooner rather than later.
