Russia is preparing to attack Ukraine’s critical infrastructure once the temperatures drop, according to Ukraine’s national security and defence council secretary Oleksii Danilov.

Meanwhile, the UK Ministry of Defence has reported that Russia has lost at least four long range SA-21 (S-400) Surface-to-Air missile launchers, in the Luhansk region, with other losses in Crimea.

Replacing those assets, the Ministry suggests, will involve transferring launchers from other operational areas, thus weakening their air defences in those areas.

As of the beginning of 2023 Russia was believed to have 96 such systems, according to the International Institute for Strategic Studies.

Each system costs in the region of $200 million.
