Russian Federation faces shortage of high-precision missiles - UK intelligence

Use of anti-aircraft missile on a humanitarian convoy at the exit from Zaporozhye indicates a shortage of ammunition.

The Russian invaders fired an anti-aircraft missile at a humanitarian convoy at the exit from Zaporozhye. This indicates that Russia is faced with a shortage of ammunition, especially precision-guided missiles. This was stated by British intelligence, the British Ministry of Defense reports on its Twitter account on Friday, October 1.

“On September 30, 2022, Russian troops almost certainly attacked a convoy southeast of the city of Zaporozhye. Local Authorities report 25 civilian deaths and the munition was likely a Russian long-range anti-aircraft missile used to strike ground targets.

Said missiles are a highly valuable resource, British intelligence said. Their main task is to destroy aircraft and shells during the shelling. Russia's stock of these missiles is limited, the agency said.

“Its use for ground attack was almost certainly due to a general shortage of ammunition, especially long-range precision-guided missiles,” the report said.

RF spends valuable military resources in an attempt to achieve a tactical advantage, but it kills civilians. Moreover, after the so-called “referendums” and attempts at annexation, Russia calls the inhabitants of the region “its own”, the British Ministry of Defense noted.

Recall that on the morning of September 30, the occupiers launched a missile attack on Zaporozhye. As a result, a civilian humanitarian convoy with civilians on the outskirts of the city was injured.

Later it became known that 62 victims from the convoy shelled by the Russians were delivered to hospitals in Zaporozhye.
