Missing missles, why no press?


I heard this on the radio this morning but I had to dig through the BBC web page to find it.

When a bunch of what looks to be ICBM’s(unless they used the wrong photo) apparently goes missing, I’m kind of of suprised this isn’t bigger news.

Reading the article, it seems that the problem is not that the missles disappeared - they were decommissioned. The question seems to be that the results of the intended recycling operations cannot be verified. Are the missle bodies just lying around, did they get recycled and the valuable materials sold on the black market, what? They current Ukrainian administration can’t say.

It’s worrying, but probably not worth a panic. Not much you can do with an ICBM without the launch infrastructure.
