how likely is the S-400 used as ground to ground system?
As one knows, it isn't actually meant for that purpose - but it can be used in a ground to ground strike.
Taking into account that certain Russian units might face ammo-shortages it could indeed happen and also via acknowledging that presently the UAF Air-force isn't a threat. But for my part I have not come across a verified use.

On Saturday morning, Russian forces fired Kh-101 cruise missiles at military targets in Odessa. The missiles were fired from a Tu-95 strategic bomber. As a result of the strike, a large-scale fire started at one of the warehouses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the western districts of Odessa. The missile hit the warehouse was also confirmed by the speaker of the Odessa military administration, Sergei Bratchuk.


Footage of the liquidation of one of the soldiers of the Ukrainian sabotage group has been published. The Ukrainian car, passing through the checkpoint, did not stop and tried to escape. Turning onto a country road and trying to evade pursuit, he ran into another car with the Russian military, who destroyed the car of a soldier of the Ukrainian sabotage group with shots from a grenade launcher and small arms. A machine gun and documents of a serviceman were found in the car.

Is there reliable info in regards to the success rate of Russian missiles being intercepted by the UAF? judging from live war-maps there seems to be a 20-30% interception rate.

Judging by the news, Ukraine intercepts no more than 15-20% of missiles

Footage of the destruction of the Ukrainian armored vehicle "Kozak 2M.1" by the Russian army has been published. The armored vehicle "Kozak 2M.1" was introduced in 2016, depending on the configuration, small arms or a 40-mm UAG-40 automatic grenade launcher can be installed on it. In this video, a 12.7 mm heavy machine gun is mounted on an armored vehicle. Depending on the modification, the armored vehicle can carry up to 15 paratroopers. The price of the armored car is 318 thousand dollars.

Soldiers of the Ukrainian army published footage of the destroyed American howitzer M777 in Ukraine. The M777 howitzer was reportedly destroyed during counter-battery firing by Russian artillery.

The first American M270 MLRS arrived in Ukraine from Britain, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov said. In addition, the US and NATO will provide Ukraine with data from their satellite systems to target these MLRS strikes. The installations will also be supplied with ATACMS Block IA missiles with a target engagement range of up to 80 km. The release of the MLRS M270 began in 1982, now it is in service with 17 countries. Despite its considerable age, the M270 retains its high fighting qualities. The MLRS chassis is unified with the M2 Bradley infantry fighting vehicle, which simplifies operation. The M270 multiple launch rocket system does not have rocket launchers. Instead, the M269 module is used, made in the form of an armored box with seats for transport and launch containers. The MLRS contains two containers, which makes it possible to fire a salvo of 12 227 mm caliber missiles at a range of 10 to 150 km for new missiles manufactured in 2022. After firing, the container is removed, and a new one is installed in its place. Thanks to this architecture, the MLRS can also launch two MGM-140 ATACMS operational-tactical missiles with a caliber of 610 mm, at a distance of up to 270 km. MLRS preparation time for firing: 2 minutes, cruising range: 500 km, M270 MLRS cost $ 4 million.

Thanks for the info. However the only news known to me in that matter, are those from the Ukraine MoD, which last week "claimed" an interception rate of 50%. Which does not correspond with the daily live war-map info I personally gather (20-30%). but that's just me.

Would you have a source for other stats in this regard?

The same would also apply towards your statement:
....In addition, the US and NATO will provide Ukraine with data from their satellite systems to target these MLRS strikes.....

IMO there is a vast difference between NATO supplying weaponry (even with training) and financial support - or towards supplying tactical satellite information which equals a direct participation in a war.

Is it possible to catch the most dangerous Russian bouncing mine OZM-72? Such an experiment was conducted by the Military Lens channel in Ukraine

My source of information is Russian telegram channels, Ukrainian air defense is old, manufactured in the 80-90s, it cannot intercept 50% of missiles

So what might be Russia's plans/intentions towards the MLRS/HIMARS threat?

The ability via land based Russian EW vehicles seems to be rather limited. And the Russian Air-force still fails largely to show presence - not to mention posing as a dominant force. (in that regard the Ukrainian air-defense seems to be a rather good one).
Is it all supposed to come down to drones?

On the night of July 21, Russian troops launched a missile attack on the Ukrainian military depot in Nikolaev. Local residents reported a series of violent explosions throughout the night in warehouses, moments now visible on video. After the attack on the warehouse in Nikolaev, the SBU began looking for saboteurs who had passed the exact coordinates of the object to the Russian military.


Ukrainian soldiers showed an episode of the battle with erroneous fire on their troops. Apparently there is no communication between the military units.

A Ukrainian tank was hijacked by Russian militias. Events unfolded like this: four Ukrainian tanks and fifty soldiers tried to drive the Donetsk militias out of their positions. In a battle that lasted 5 hours, the militia went into the flanks and destroyed three vehicles with blows to the sides of Ukrainian tanks. The fourth stalled Ukrainian tank, under the cover of a smoke screen, was driven from the battlefield by the militias. The commander of this tank was also taken prisoner. Details in the video, the video has subtitles.
