Musienko believes that missile strikes are the only trump card of the Russians.
The Russians want to conduct 1-2 more large-scale missile attacks on the territory of Ukraine in time for the New Year.
Oleksandr Musienko, the head of the Center for Military and Legal Studies, made such a prediction, noting that the Russian Federation wants to use its missile terror to induce Ukraine to compromise and freeze the line of hostilities.
Musienko believes that missile strikes are the Russians’ only trump card, and as long as they have missiles, they will use them to their full potential.
As the expert noted, Russia wants to cause as much damage as possible to Ukraine by destroying civil infrastructure, energy facilities, and then declare: “we are ready to stop, but let’s negotiate.”
Massive Russian missile attacks on the energy system of Ukraine

The last attack by Russian troops was carried out on November 23.
According to the Air Force of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Russia launched about 70 Kh-101/Kh-555 Kalibr cruise missiles over the territory of Ukraine, 51 of which were shot down by the Defense Forces of Ukraine.
