Russia has always excelled in artillery but logistics has never been their forte.  Even their resupply columns run out of gas.  The old Mosin may be that solder's first choice of sniper rifle.

Putin is grabbing men off the streets and sending them to the meat mincer in Ukraine.
They are issued with this type of AK:s

Even if that's true which I doubt I bet it still works.
