It is worth noting that Ukraine's Defense Ministry planned to purchase about 3,000 missile systems worth more than 2.4 billion hryvnias (almost 95 million USD) in 2020.

"It is planned to purchase about 3,000 missile systems and missiles for them in the amount of more than 2.4 billion hryvnias (almost 95 million USD), taking into account state guarantees," the message reads.

As we reported earlier, a contingent of the Russian military went for exercises in the area of Pechenga, a few kilometers away from the Russian-Norwegian border.

Over 1,000 men and 220 vehicles were involved in the Russian drill; that number included Grad multiple rocket launchers, Gvozdika and Akatsiya howitzers and anti-tank missile launchers.
