Russia has spent $82 billion on war During nine months of its full-scale invasion of Ukraine. This is a quarter of its annual budget

According to the Forbes, in the fall, russian military spending doubled. Now the war is taking at least $10 billion a month from the russians. This was influenced by partial mobilization — 30 000 recruits will cost Russia an additional $1.8 billion per month.

After mobilization, the total cost of salaries for the military fighting in Ukraine is approximately $2.7 billion. Accordingly, the costs of arming and equipping soldiers have increased, as well as compensation payments — for each dead soldier, his family should receive 7.4 million rubles (approximately $110 000).
