Ukrainian Chief Intelligence Directorate explains why Russia’s mass missile strikes halt.

Defense Intelligence believes that the Russian Federation is preparing for the next large-scale missile attack, accumulating rockets, exploring new targets and gathering intelligence.

Ukrainian Chief Intelligence Directorate official Vadym Skibitskyi reports that new intelligence is being gathered on the infrastructure that has been targeted before.

It is a classic approach: they study the regions and targets that will be attacked.

Lastly, missiles are being prepared for deployment. This takes time.

Considering that the Russian reserve of missiles dwindles, forcing them to use old, Soviet-produced missiles, maintenance is required before utilizing them.
