Russia’s military production increases: “It can maintain the attack on Ukraine at the current rate for another two or three years”

As Ukraine struggles to obtain ammunition, weapons and equipment, Russia has seen a marked increase in industrial production over the past two years, defying the expectations many Western defense planners had when Vladimir Putin launched the invasion in February 2022.

Total defense spending has risen to around 7.5% of Russia’s GDP, with supply chains retooled to secure many key inputs and circumvent sanctions. Factories producing munitions, vehicles and equipment work 24 hours a day, often in mandatory 12-hour shifts, doubled overtime, to keep the Russian military machine running.
