Russia launched 84 cruise missiles and 24 drones all across Ukraine on Oct. 10, with an average total value of $400-700 million, according to Forbes.

While the exact type of each missile launched is currently unknown, it was reported that Kh-101, Kh-555, Caliber, Iskander, S-300, and Tornado-S missiles were used in the attacks.

Forbes calculated the cost based on the assumption that most of the missiles Russia launched were the expensive and highly accurate Kh-101, S-300, and Tornado-S missiles, while the remaining were aimed at overloading Ukraine's air defenses.

The last large-scale missile attack on numerous Ukraine cities took place between June 25-26, when Russia launched 60-80 missiles with a total cost of $150-200 million, Forbes estimated at the time.
