Russia can launch artillery strikes on targets in Ukraine ten seconds after receiving the appropriate order. During this time, they will have time to conduct reconnaissance and open aimed fire.

He notes that any unit of the Russian Ground Forces from a battalion and above has at its disposal its own cannon artillery and multiple launch rocket systems. Battalion artillerymen will be located closest to the positions of the Ukrainian troops, therefore, according to Ex, they are the most dangerous for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The Association of the US Ground Forces noted that they are the ones who are able to immediately respond to the sudden emergence of favorable circumstances for the Russian military and take advantage of them.
The advantage of the Russians is speed. The commander of the Russian battalion does not need to ask the brigade to provide him with fire support. He has everything he needs
- says David Ax.
