A US Defense official said Thursday that russian forces have launched more than 480 missiles into Ukraine since the start of the invasion. The invasion is in its eighth day.
“More than 230” of that 480 total are “coming from inside Ukraine. They have mobile systems, they’re moving them inside,” the official added.
The next biggest chunk of missiles are coming from russia, “about 160 from russia” and about 70 are coming from Belarus, and a very small number — less than 10 — are coming from the Black Sea, the official said.
While the airspace over Ukraine “remains contested,” the US assesses that Ukrainian “air and missile defense systems remain intact” and “remain effective,” the official added. “They continue to be able to fly their airplanes and to employ air defense assets,” the official added.
As reported, the President of Poland, Andrzej Duda stressed that russia’s crimes in Ukraine show signs of genocide.
