Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine that started on February 24, 2022, Russian forces are involved its full range of military capabilities including air defense, artillery and rocket artillery, long-range precision missile systems such as the Iskander-M short-range ballistic missile, electronic warfare, support, and logistics units. Additionally, by February 2022, Russia had mobilized large numbers of Airborne Troops, fighter-bomber, and helicopter squadrons, which some observers believed would play a key role in the initial invasion.
