Over the past day, the Ukrainian military repelled attacks by Russian troops on 11 settlements in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions of the eastern Donbass and inflicted losses on the enemy by firing at Russian forces in the Zaporozhye region in southern Ukraine, the General Staff of Ukraine reported. In nine months, Russia spent $82 billion (1.9 trillion crowns) on direct spending on the war in Ukraine, according to the Ukrainian edition of the economic magazine Forbes. The amount spent on the conflict, which Kyiv and the West denounce, is about a quarter of Russian budget revenues last year.
