Operational Command South believes stormy weather in the Black Sea area is forcing the Russian forces to postpone any strikes targeting Ukraine as missile carriers remain at their bases in occupied Crimea.
That’s according to the spokesperson for the OCS press service Natalia Humeniuk, who spoke at the national telethon, Ukrinform reports.
"At the moment, the sea is on our side – stormy weather forces missile carriers to be brought to their bases, but we know that at least one surface missile carrier is armed and on standby, with eight Kalibrs on board," she said.
However, the likelihood of Russia launching another missile attack remains quite high.

"At this moment, we can say that the likelihood of a missile attack is a little delayed, although it remains high. Since two or three hours are enough for a missile carrier to get on a combat course. The storm is not too critical for them to not be able to deploy," Humeniuk said.
As Ukrinform reported earlier, as of March 12, there were six Russian warships in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov, with not a single Kalibr cruise missile carrier among them.
