Forbes has published a material in which it considers the scenario of Russia's bombing of Ukraine. This is despite the fact that the Kremlin has repeatedly said that Russia is not going to attack anyone. The National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine also stated today that they see no reason to assert that Russia is preparing a full-scale offensive.

Nevertheless, Forbes authors cite a scenario in which Russia, which has the third largest bomber fleet in the world after The Chinese and US Air Forces will strike Ukraine with cruise missiles using the Tu-22M3, Tu-95 and Tu-160.

The article emphasizes that Russian bombers are capable of hitting targets on land with high accuracy, being from them at a distance of hundreds and even thousands of kilometers. In fact, Russian planes will be out of range of air defense systems and the Ukrainian military will not be able to do anything with them.

The author notes that Russia only in 2015 armed the Tu-160 with Kh-101 cruise missiles for attacks on ground targets. Before that, more attention was paid to anti-ship missiles. The article says that this missile is capable of flying 5 thousand km and using satellite guidance to hit the target with an accuracy of 10 meters.

“Today, the Tu-160 and Tu-95 regularly use the Kh-101 in Syria to destroy militants and terrorists,” the article also says.

Ukrainians were advised passive defense under this tactic: “To survive the missile attack, Ukrainians must keep moving when they can, and dig in when they can’t.”< /p>
