Russia is conducting a powerful information special operation against Ukraine and its military-political leadership, in particular against President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. According to NSDC Secretary Oleksii Danilov, one of the narratives promoted by russian propaganda is that the world is tired of the war in Ukraine. Danilov stressed that this war should never be “frozen”, since “russia will sooner or later encroach on our land anyway.”

“The russian occupiers are running out of precision weapons, and there are almost no reserves for some types of missiles”, said the Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine. According to the calculations of our intelligence officers, the enemy has no more than 45% of those missiles that were before the start of the war. The situation with Iskanders and Kalibrs is especially difficult. Because of this, the enemy uses X-22 and S-300 missiles in the ground version. But even these reserves are already running out.

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal says that the next heating season may be the most difficult in the history of independent Ukraine. The greatest risk is russia’s terrorist attacks against critical infrastructure. Therefore, the government will allocate UAH 1 billion 409 million for the purchase of a strategic stock of material reserves, which will allow responding promptly to challenges. Currently, readiness for the heating season is 75%.
