According to the military intelligence of Ukraine, the enemy is already using a strategic stockpile of some types of weapons, as well as missiles manufactured this year, particularly in August. Vadym Skibitsky, a representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, stated this on the telethon "United News".

"This suggests that some missiles are used directly from the assembly line. How much they will be enough depends a lot on the production. Yes, it fell compared to the pre-war period. But, unfortunately, the Russian Federation, since it circumvents economic sanctions, is still able to produce a certain number of cruise missiles and other weapons that are used against our state," concluded the representative of military intelligence of Ukraine.

For 2 months, Russia exported 122 mm, 152 mm artillery ammunition from Belarus.

Also, according to military intelligence, negotiations between Russia and other countries regarding the supply of ammunition and missile weapons for the "Smerch" and "Uragan" anti-aircraft missiles, of which it is in short supply, and negotiations between the Russian Federation and Iran regarding the replenishment of ballistic missile stocks are ongoing. As Vadym Skibitsky noted, there are relevant draft agreements between these countries, but to date, no deliveries of such weapons have been recorded.
