Russia has changed the tactics of its missile attacks on Ukraine, according to the British Ministry of Defense, citing British intelligence data. Hitting the energy infrastructure is likely no longer a priority.

As noted by British intelligence officers, Russia on April 28 and May 1 hit Ukraine with air-launched cruise missiles. These were the first such attacks 50 days after March 9th.

The strikes were carried out by Russian long-range strategic bombers Tu-95 and Tu-160. Obviously, Kh-101 and Kh-555 cruise missiles were used.

During both attacks, the occupiers used fewer rockets than during previous attacks, British intelligence officers noted. This may be due to Russia's attempts to restore stocks of air-launched cruise missiles.

Analyzing facilities damaged in recent Russian strikes, British intelligence officials note that Ukraine's electricity grid is no longer a Russian target.
"Both of the latter strikes were most likely focused on Ukraine's military, industrial and logistical infrastructure," the British intelligence report said.
