Sanctions work: Russia began to receive weapons of reduced accuracy – Danilov
Russia has received thousands of sanctions since the full-scale invasion began. This affected its military-industrial complex.
Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council Alexei Danilov spoke about this.
“The Russian army as a result of Western sanctions began to receive weapons of reduced quality and accuracy, trying to maintain quantitative indicators. Ukraine's strategy is to rely on the quality of advanced technologies, and not on the mass of mobilized ones,” Danilov wrote.
NSDC Secretary on new threats
According to Danilov, Russia may launch a new full-scale offensive in the coming weeks. Probably, the occupiers will even try to advance on the anniversary – February 24.
Danilov assured that the Ukrainian military is preparing for attacks. In addition, the defenders have more options and support than they did 12 months ago.
We have gone through a big difficult period, but I am aware that the main fights are still ahead and they will take place this year, within two to three months. These will be decisive months in the war,” the NSDC secretary believes.
