Targets 1,500 km deep in Russia are no longer problematic for Ukraine – Danilov

The significant distance at which targets are located in Russia is no longer a problem for Ukraine. Today, the Armed Forces can hit targets even 1,500 kilometers away, Oleksii Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, said.

“And 700, and 1,000 [kilometers] and more – this will no longer be a big problem for us, a large number of professional people worked for this, for which we should be grateful to them, and all this is happening so that we can protect our country,” Danilov said.

It was possible to increase the capabilities of weapons thanks to the modernization of Ukraine’s missile program and the use of drones.

“There are two directions that have been developed for a certain period of time – this is the missile program, which was approved back in 2020, to create our own Ukrainian missiles, and the use of unmanned aerial vehicles, which are being deployed very powerfully in our country today, involving a large number private companies,” Danilov explained.

At the same time, Ukraine attacks only Russian military facilities. In contrast, explosions at oil refineries or other facilities are the work of Russian partisans, which Ukraine does not control, Danilov emphasized.

“We attack either plants or military production – the components that kill our children. We have to put an end to this,” Danilov concluded.

On the night of August 30, Ukraine launched the biggest attack on Russia. Local authorities reported that explosions were heard in six Russian oblasts – Pskov, Bryansk, Oryol, Ryazan, Moscow and Kaluga.
