"We constantly monitors the movement of all carriers and active measures that the 12th main Department of Russia's Ministry of Defense, which is responsible for the preparation and delivery of nuclear charges, can carry out or is carrying out," the representative of the Defense Intelligence of Ukraine added.

According to Vadym Skibitskyi, this process is not easy, but Defense Intelligence of Ukraine has experience in monitoring and reconnoitering strategic and other exercises of nuclear forces, which have been held since 2014 and earlier.

"That is, we know all the procedural issues. Because of this, the GUR constantly keeps the nuclear component of the Russian armed forces under control," the the representative of Ukraine’s Defense Intelligence emphasized.
