The Russia-Ukraine Military Imbalance

The fact that Russia has a larger military than Ukraine will hardly come as a surprise to most, but the extent to which the smaller nation is outnumbered in virtually every area may not be immediately clear. GlobalFirepower has assessed the military forces of both countries for 2022, and as this infographic shows, Russia has everything in its favor on paper, and without the support of Ukraine’s allies, in practice surely, too.

Whether Russian President Putin makes the decision to invade the country again, and on a far larger scale, remains to be seen. What we do know however, is that there is a new and significant military build up on the Russian side of the border, diplomatic efforts have failed, and the West is currently focusing on projecting solidarity and threatening dire (economic, at least) consequences should an invasion occur.
