Rocket attack on Ukraine: results announced


The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation do not stop striking at military and energy facilities in Ukraine. On December 29, another large-scale impact took place.


Over the past night, the Geran-2 (Shahed 136) kamikaze UAV attacked the objects of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Odessa and Nikolaev regions of Ukraine, as well as in the territories of the Zaporozhye region and the DPR that have not yet been liberated. Warehouses with weapons and ammunition fell under the blows, including in Slavyansk, Kramatorsk and Nikolaev.

In the morning, about 120 more powerful munitions were used in Ukraine. Sea-launched Caliber cruise missiles, as well as Kh-22 and Kh-32 air-launched cruise missiles were used. Moreover, before the “wave”, simulator missiles (dummy targets for missiles) were launched, which opened the locations of the air defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, after which they were hit, including in Odessa.

In addition, energy infrastructure facilities in Kyiv, Nikolaev, Ivano-Frankivsk, Odessa, Kharkov and Lvov were hit. Arrivals were also recorded for critical infrastructure and enterprises in Sumy, Chernihiv, Zhytomyr, Vinnitsa, Poltava, Ternopil and Khmelnytsky regions.

In particular, in Kyiv, an industrial enterprise in the Goloseevsky district was struck and the metro of the Ukrainian capital stopped working. In Kharkiv, power supply was also lost and the metro stopped, there are interruptions in communications and water. In Ivano-Frankivsk and Nikolaev, energy facilities were damaged and problems with electricity began. In the suburbs of Odessa, a transformer substation was hit near the airport and a 330/110 kV Usatovo substation 10 km north of the city. Energy facilities were damaged in Lviv, after which 90% of the city was left without electricity and water, the movement of urban electric transport was stopped.

More details from the scene are likely to come at a later date. However, it can be assumed, given the previous strikes, which have been ongoing since October 10, and the ongoing repair and restoration work, that Ukraine will need 1-2 weeks to eliminate the consequences. In the event of an increase in the intensity of strikes by Russian forces, the enemy will no longer be able to minimize the consequences for such a time, his adaptability will decrease, and crisis phenomena will increase.

    the head of the Kyiv city military administration, Sergei Popko, in his blog, assures that all 16 missiles were shot down

    UNIAN:

    The air defense forces destroyed 54 missiles out of more than 69 fired by the Russian invaders at Ukraine on the morning of December 29.
    This was announced during a briefing by the Deputy Chief of the Main Operational Directorate of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Brigadier General Oleksiy Gromov

    If this information is true: the air defense of Ukraine worked quite effectively. And this efficiency is growing!
    Unlike the Russian air defense, which has primitive Ukrainian "messengers" flying quite freely in Russian airspace!

      Taking into account the fact that for the publication of arrivals, in Banderostan, they imprison, then of course, "efficiency is growing."
      Especially if you believe everything))
      The Russians fired 15 rockets, shot down one, two fell themselves. Write that they released 70. And write that the air defense was shot down 58))
      Ukro-mathematics is a special science))

      Last time, Ukrainian air defense did not shoot down one missile, which, as it turned out later, hit more than 10 objects. So I would not really trust such sources.

    It's all wonderful. When will the attack be? When will we tear Galicia from Little Russia? When will we destroy the crossing points across the Polish border? When will we destroy all airports? When will it become impossible to supply Western equipment to Ukraine?

    Ukraine will need 1-2 weeks to eliminate the consequences.

    Only a blow to the distribution stations of the nuclear power plant will put an end to the agony of the outskirts. An example is the Zaporizhia station, which operates "in idle" mode after the blows of Khokhlomaniacs. The rest is the deterrent factor.

    Russian troops have changed the tactics of launching missile strikes on the infrastructure of Ukraine and its air defense (air defense). As a result of the attacks on December 29, in addition to the destruction of critical infrastructure, it was possible to destroy two air defense calculations - near Kyiv and in the Odessa region. Military expert, director of the Museum of Air Defense Forces Yuri Knutov told MK how missile strikes are now organized and why the Ukrainian system is powerless against them.
    Attacks on Ukraine's infrastructure began at night. Drones "Geran-2" attacked military facilities of the armed forces of Ukraine in the central regions of Ukraine and hit warehouses with weapons and equipment, as well as places of deployment of air defense systems in Kharkiv, Zaporozhye, Dnepropetrovsk, Odessa and Mykolaiv regions.

    Drones also hit targets in Slavyansk and Kramatorsk, including a depot with artillery ammunition.

    As a number of experts noted, before the strike of cruise missiles, air target simulators with Luneberg lenses appeared over most objects (they imitate the effective scattering area of ​​real targets with large sizes - for example, combat aircraft - "MK"). Such devices are used to open air defense areas. After the Ukrainians used up missiles on decoys, the main phase of our attack began.

    On the morning of December 29, a massive strike was delivered by Caliber cruise missiles, as well as Kh-101, Kh-22 and Kh-32 air-launched missiles. In total, according to Ukrainian sources, at least 120 missiles were involved in the attack.

    According to military analyst Yuriy Knutov, the peculiarity of the latest massive strikes on Ukraine's critical infrastructure facilities lies in the "complexity and change in the composition of the means of attack."

    -If earlier we used only Caliber missiles, and then more kamikaze drones of the Geran type joined in, now we use drones that go ahead of almost the bulk of the missiles and distract the air defense system, forcing the enemy to waste missiles on extremely cheap and useless drones,” the expert said.

    Second, the strike group includes Kh-58 and Kh-31P missiles. These are anti-radar missiles that are guided automatically by the radar beam of the Ukrainian S-300 and Buk anti-aircraft systems. Thus, if we are talking about the Buk, the complex is completely destroyed, and if it is about the S-300 complex, then the radar is destroyed, which makes the launchers virtually useless.

    According to the expert, the new tactics led to the fact that during the last strike, four anti-aircraft missile divisions of the Ukrainian air defense were disabled.

    - This time we acted in much the same way. And such a mixed composition of strike weapons leads to the fact that Ukraine widely uses expensive missiles against relatively inexpensive kamikaze drones and target cruise missiles. In response, she receives, respectively, the arrival of Kh-58 and Kh-31P anti-radar missiles.

    As a result, a significant part of the air defense systems that Ukraine uses is diverted to traps that are used by our Aerospace Forces or missile forces.

    Almost all targets are hit with high accuracy and efficiency. And it is mainly those means that are imitators of targets and are designed to either distract the enemy or destroy his radars that go astray.

    Of course, it doesn’t match, you forgot that in the spring the forelocks shot down more than 100 SU-57s. They have a star in all the news.

    Can you raise your pay even more?
    How, then, to pump oil and gas through Hohland? These blows are delivered not with the aim of actually weakening the enemy, but with the aim of intimidation, in the hope that Zelensky and his henchmen will take pity on the people, raise their paws to the top and go to an agreement on Russia's terms, only our authorities are so amorphous that even after 10 months they still until they realized that this would not happen. Even if all of Ukraine is razed to the ground with nuclear strikes, Zelensky will sit in one of the bunkers and send the last remaining thousand Ukrainians to attack.

    All this is good .... But again we look like "fools-humanists". The main and fattest target, substations and large pylons of 750 kV transmission lines, are not touched again! Without their destruction, the unified and centralized energy of Banderostan will not be destroyed. NO WAY!
    This is reminiscent of the Kremlin's stupid giveaway game. When we kind of hit, but we hit not hard, not from the heart, as the Bandera people deserve it !!!!!

    But we again look like "fools-humanists."
    Until now, there are people who believe in the mind and managerial talent of a certain "multi-move". So, there is no mind or talent. There is fear for one's life, which can be taken away at the snap of a finger, there is a critical dependence on the will of the West and the oligarchy in Russia, which personifies it.
    I don’t know what the aforementioned character hopes for in 2024. A little more of such a shameful conduct of the NWO and he will be cursed by the people of Russia and those who are waiting in Ukraine.
