Moscow still has more than 2,000 old missiles, enough for several months of bombing

Russia has almost 7,000 medium- and short-range missiles (up to 5,500 km). Almost half of them are low-range Kh-22, Kh-55, “Point-U” complexes, reports Forbes.

During four months of the war, Russia has already used about 3,000 missiles on Ukraine. During the first stage of the war, Russia mainly used Kalibr missiles (sea-based) and Iskander missile complexes. Most likely, there are not many Kalibr and Iskander missiles left in Russian stockpiles.

“Since Russia did not count on a long war, it actively consumed these missiles, despite the fact that their stock was not too large (2,000-3,000 units). In May, the first reports appeared that the Russian Ministry of Defense began to hunt for missiles in China, North Korea and other countries, about the same time that they first used Kh-59 missiles. These are old Soviet rockets from the 80s, but are quite  accurate. The radial deviation is indicated as less than 10 meters, but the USSR and Russia tend to exaggerate the real accuracy of their weapons,” the article says.
