Avia Pro: Russia will unleash a strike of 170 cruise missiles on Ukraine in case of an attempt to attack the Donbass or Crimea.
In central Belarus. If Iskander-M, the battlefield quasi-ballistic missile system, they can strike Kyiv, Chernihiv, Zhytomyr, Rivne, Lutsk, even Lviv, Ternopil, Vinnytsia, Cherkasy or Sumy from here. If Iskander-K cruise missile, they can likely strike anywhere in Ukraine. https://t.co/8I9pG47snP

Russia is ready to instantly launch a strike, including 170 cruise missiles, on the Ukrainian military, military airfields and bases. We are talking only about the first wave of attack, which should either make Kiev think about stopping the escalation, or lead to a subsequent wave of attack. This is how Kiev evaluates Russia’s actions. For obvious reasons, the air defense systems of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will not be able to repel such a strike even if all the air defense / missile defense systems in service with Kiev in possible attack areas are used.
Russia has now secured her southern flank in a brilliant ambush of a poorly coordinated coup. Her Caspian Fleet will launch Kaliber cruise missile barrages across Ukraine and the Black Sea. pic.twitter.com/ZyELZZ0QG2

It is quite obvious that not only ground systems will be involved in the strikes, but also combat aircraft, as well as, more than likely, warships and submarines. This indicates that it will be simply impossible to repel an attack from three directions at once.
“Obviously, it began to dawn on Kiev that Russia does not intend to put up with threats against itself. One warning will be more than enough to make the strikes against the Armed Forces justified.”, – the expert marks.
Russian special forces, or Spetznaz, will hit key targets across Ukraine,
to confuse and deceive …
Cyber strikes and sea-launched cruise missile strikes, accompanied by fixed wing aircraft, will initiate this next phase, https://t.co/FLXOZAGwsh

Today, according to various estimates, there is a Russian army of 126 thousand people only near the Ukrainian border, however, the Russian side has repeatedly assured that an attack on Ukraine is not planned, provided that Kiev does not create pretexts for this, however, even otherwise, actions aimed only at protecting Russian citizens in the Donbass will be taken.
