UK intelligence on missiles used by Russia firing at Ukrainian cities

    WORLD - 02 July 2022 - 11:09

    Russia continues to use air-launched anti-ship missiles for ground attacks on Ukraine.

    This is being done due to declining stocks of more accurate modern weapons.

    The remarks came from the daily review from British intelligence, published by the British Ministry of Defence, according to Caliber.Az.

    As noted in the report, analysis of CCTV footage shows that the missile that struck a shopping centre in Kremenchuk on June 27, 2022, most likely belonged to the X-32 type. This is a modernized version of the Soviet-era Kh-22.

    “While the Kh-32 has several performance improvements over the Kh-22, it is still not optimized for accurate engagement of ground targets, especially in urban environments. This greatly increases the likelihood of collateral damage when targeting built-up areas,” the British Ministry of Defense noted.

    Further strikes on June 30 in the Odesa region were likely made by Kh-22 missiles. "These weapons are even less accurate and unsuitable for targeted strikes and have caused civilian casualties on numerous occasions in recent weeks," the statement said.
