As it turns out, Russia fired over 500 drones and missiles between December 29 and January 2, official sources in Kyiv said. According to the article, the most frequent targets of attacks were Ukrainian defense plants such as Artem, in contrast to the previous winter, when Russia focused its efforts on destroying energy infrastructure.

Describing the nature of the attacks , highlights careful planning that includes waves of drones and missiles designed to undermine Ukraine's air defense systems.

To disrupt Ukraine's air defenses, Russia typically employs a sequence of tactics, starting with the launch of slow-flying drones, followed by the use of low-flying subsonic cruise missiles, and then ballistic missiles that travel at the speed of sound and make them difficult to intercept.

Dara Massicot, senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment in Washington, emphasized:

«Russia is seeking to overcome Ukraine's air defense. If they succeed, and Ukraine is unable to defend its skies, this will pose a serious threat, opening up the possibility for Russia to send heavy bombers.

An air defense and surface-to-air missile system 187;, dubbed «FrankenSAM», is a complex mixture that faces the challenges presented by such attacks.

« The combined use of hypersonic and subsonic weapons has made it difficult for Ukraine to determine priority air defense targets», — noted Sam Cranny-Evans, research fellow at the Royal Armed Forces Institute.

Recall that Medvedev threatened London with war: he drew another “red line” for Britain.
