The fact that a terrorist state is seeking to take maximum advantage of the weakening of Ukrainian air defense, trying not only to destroy the domestic energy infrastructure, but also to deplete the defense-industrial potential of Ukraine, writes NBN, citing the Institute for the Study of War (ISW).

As it became known, the “second army of the world” also carried out an attack on the railway infrastructure of the Kherson region, which forced Ukrzaliznytsia to reduce train service on the Kyiv-Kherson and Kyiv-Mykolaiv routes. At the same time, the defense department of the aggressor country claimed that the strikes were allegedly carried out on energy facilities and enterprises of the military-industrial complex (military-industrial complex) in order to minimize Ukraine’s ability to restore military equipment and transfer Western weapons to the front line.

In addition, in recent weeks, Putin's troops have sharply stepped up attacks (using a large number of missiles to overcome Ukrainian air defenses) on Ukraine's transport infrastructure, apparently in an attempt to disrupt the functioning of land lines of communication (GLOC ), and at the same time limit the influx of expected supplies from the United States in the security sector.
