In recent months, Russia has experienced an increase in drone attacks and acts of sabotage, for which Kyiv has increasingly taken responsibility.
The Ukrainian attacks primarily target Russia's military-industrial complex, according to Kyrylo Budanow, the head of Ukraine's military intelligence.
He made these comments during a rare public appearance at the Yalta European Strategy (YES) conference in Kyiv.
Budanow revealed that a Russian factory producing chips for Iskander missiles, frequently used by Moscow to bombard Ukraine, had been recently attacked.
He noted that while these attacks have had some sobering effects on Russian society, they have not yet had a massive impact. However, he predicts that these attacks will cause "significant problems" for Russia in the long term. "It's a matter of time," Budanow stated.
He emphasized that no civilians had been harmed in these attacks, contrary to what Russia might claim.
The Ukrainian military has confirmed that they will continue their counteroffensive operations even during the winter months.
