Russia is running out of weapons in the fight against Ukraine;Evidence of S-300 missile fired on the
Russia, which started the war against Ukraine, speculated that it has a shortage of weapons. The Ukrainian military has claimed that it has re-occupied 6,000 square km of land occupied by Russian forces. About 20 cities are inhabited in this region. Some evidence of the lack of weapons with Russia has also been seen in these cities.
Analysts say that some such marks have been found on the land cleared by the Ukrainian army, seeing that it looks like the Russian military had fired S-300 missiles there. Analysts said the S-300 is designed to destroy missiles or aircraft in the air, not targets on the ground. Russia's use of the S-300 missile for ground attacks suggests it has lost some precision weapons in the months-long war. Because of this, Russia has fired S-300 missiles on the ground. On the other hand, the Russian army continues to fire rockets on Ukrainian cities and villages.
Regional governor Oleh Sinihubov said a Russian missile attack caught fire in Kharkiv's industrial area early Saturday. Sinihubov also said missile debris showed Russia fired surface-to-air S-300 missiles at the city. At the same time, Western defense officials and analysts expressed hope that the Russian army is preparing a new defense line in northeast Ukraine as Ukrainian forces try to advance further in the eastern sector. The British Defense Ministry told daily intelligence that the line was likely to lie between the Oskil River and Svatov, about 150 kilometers southeast of Kharkiv, Ukraine's second-largest city.
The Russian army is preparing a new front line after the Ukrainian army's counter-attack in the war broke the earlier front line. Ukraine has broken an earlier Russian front line and recaptured large areas in the northeastern Kharkiv region, which borders Russia. The British military said it was unclear whether Russian forces would be able to withstand another Ukrainian solid attack.
