On October 10, Russia launched more than 80 missiles into neighboring countries, of which more than 40 fruits were shot down by Kiev's air defense system, according to the Ukrainian army.

Ukrainian Defense Deputy Minister Hanna Maliar in late April announced that Russia had launched 1,300 missiles since the start of the campaign on February 24, estimated that Moscow has used nearly half of the rocket reserve in time.

The Russian defense industry is said to be able to produce 100-200 new missiles each year.

The economic sanctions that the West imposed with Russia made the country's weapons industry difficult to find electronic components supply.

In addition to the impact of sanctions, the Russian military industry is also influenced by the shortcomings in the management, this is somewhat revealed when the country executes the recent reserve soldier's encouragement,

In the current situation of the battlefield, Russia still has a greater advantage than Ukraine when possessing the second most powerful military force in the world.

The Ukrainian military will constantly strengthen the Western support, while Russia's attack capacity is likely to decline because it is difficult to maintain the frequency of large -scale ambushes for a long time, he said

The Ukrainian army did not choose to confront the Russian overwhelming fire, but tried to hit the weakest links to gradually change the battlefield.
