How do the Armed Forces of Ukraine learn about the preparation of a missile attack by Russia


On November 28, Ukrainian information resources burst into hysterics about the imminent infliction of an unprecedented blow by the Russian Air Force on objects in Ukraine. Even the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky announced the approaching strike in his traditional evening video address to the nation. After that, many Internet users had a reasonable question, how did the Armed Forces of Ukraine and local near-military publics learn about Russia's preparations for another missile attack.


It should be noted that the publications described in detail the forces and means that the RF Armed Forces could use this time. For example, they talked about the preparation of about 20 units of Russian strategic bombers-missile carriers of the Russian Aerospace Forces, the OTRK of the Ground Forces and a large group of ships of the Russian Navy. Moreover, it was clarified that such activity had not been observed before and the Russians could use a total of about 400 missiles, which is 3,5 times more than was used in record attacks per day.

However, one should not be surprised at such enlightenment of the Ukrainian military personnel and the near-military public. The thing is that Kyiv receives all the data online from its Western partners. Having received the signal, an air alert is announced in Ukraine. Dozens of satellites belonging to state or private structures of Western countries and their allies hang or fly over the territory of Russia. At the borders of the Russian Federation, aircraft and drones of electronic intelligence are on duty. All of them closely monitor the situation and report the information received.

At the same time, it is impossible in principle to carry out a large-scale operation to move a lot of ammunition, ships, aircraft and other weapons systems “in the mode of total silence and a smoke screen”. But, even knowing about the approach of an inevitable strike from Russia, the air defense system of Ukraine will not be able to fully reflect it, since the capabilities of the RF Armed Forces exceed the reserves of anti-missiles of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

How do the Armed Forces of Ukraine learn about the preparation of a missile attack by Russia

As for the satellite images of the Engels air base in Saratov, distributed by Western sources, made on the morning of November 28, they clearly show preparations for the departure of 14 Tu-95MS and 4 Tu-160 units. Next to the "strategists" are 4 Il-78M tanker aircraft, which are designed to refuel aircraft in the air. Often such flights are training flights, which becomes clear from the traffic routes and radio traffic, after which the alarms in Ukraine begin to be canceled.

    You are right, the main intelligence information is the result of analyzing data from the enemy satellite constellation, therefore, for the success of the NMD, it must be unconditionally disabled.

    This is not information from satellites and reconnaissance aircraft.
    This is espionage information, covering not only the physical forces of the RF Armed Forces, but also the plan of the command.
    The reader can think for himself and determine who may have such information.
    This is how we fight!

    that is why it is necessary to install Caliber on Iskander tractors, it will be difficult for satellites to detect them. Moreover, the INF Treaty is no longer operating. or in containers, and place the container with Caliber on the semi-trailer of the truck

      We need to make more decoys: tanks, missiles, self-propelled guns.

    As I understand it, even the obsolete and weak air defense of Ukraine, in principle, is no longer being destroyed by the Russian Aerospace Forces? Is it just stupid to overwhelm the mass launches? Although, in principle, why be surprised at all?

      I live in the Krasnodar Territory. After launching rockets from the Caspian, they fly over my village. When they were let in during the day in clear weather, they were clearly visible. And given the number of refugees, one of them will definitely call whoever needs it. Now launches are not made during the day. But on the night of 29. they flew often and densely. I went out to the balcony to listen

    To promptly report, you need to either call or on an Internet. It will work a couple of times, but sooner or later the "Khovaya gebnya" (C) :) will come for such refugees!

      Do not take it as importunity, but I repeat. We have all the jambs for one reason - the oak electorate. The manual government, corrupt officials, local authorities are all tied to the oligarchic business, which grazes all the Russian government and its offspring, who have crawled into the middle-class business. And the president is the tail of a pissed-off dog, which is unable to wag it (the dog).

        This has long been chewed out by various philosophers, including Lenin.
        Nobody will sweep anything.
        Until it gets so bad that part of the "elite", saving their skins, does not leave the "simple" under the bullets to displace the 2nd part ....

        The root of evil is the children and godfathers of the United Russia deputies, including those over the hill. The manual government, corrupt officials, local authorities are all tied to the oligarchic business, which grazes all the Russian government and its offspring, who have crawled into the middle-class business.

        Unfortunately, this is not only at the top of power, it is everywhere where money and power are spinning.

        It is unlikely that you will be able to get rid of children, relatives, friends and good necessary acquaintances under any authority. But to establish turnover with a normal vote can and will succeed.

    The thing is that Kyiv receives all the data online from its Western partners.

    Oh-whether? You can see how many Russians are happy to catch the hype by posting videos on the network with the movement of troops and equipment, videos from air defense work sites. Do you think these are small things? But in vain.
