The Armed Forces of Ukraine do not have shells left to withstand the pressure of the RF Armed Forces

With the development of a special operation, Russian troops greatly outnumber the Ukrainian army in artillery, and the quantity and quality of shells of the RF Armed Forces seriously demoralizes the Armed Forces of Ukraine. A number of Western publications write about this.

In particular, The San Diego Union-Tribune points out that the howitzers of the Ukrainian armed forces have few shells, and Western weapons arrive at the front line in very small numbers. It is reported that for one Ukrainian projectile there are about a dozen Russian ones. In this regard, the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have to save ammunition during the battle.

The publication also points to cases of the use of tanks as artillery - for example, once there was a use of the T-64BV tank instead of a self-propelled artillery mount.

Meanwhile, the quality of foreign ammunition sometimes leaves much to be desired. Due to the shortage of 122 mm shells, Ukrainian military personnel are forced to use Czech-made ammunition. However, according to the American publication, out of 40 such shells, only 3 are fired.

Along with this, according to the British The Guardian, Ukrainian troops are having difficulty resisting the pressure of Russian artillery, capable of operating using the method of massive fire. Moreover, the arsenals of the Russian Armed Forces make it possible not to reduce the combat pressure for several years, while the Armed Forces of Ukraine are looking forward to NATO supplies.

    Armed Forces of Ukraine are looking forward to NATO supplies

    and even with great impatience, these deliveries are expected in Kyiv, more it is necessary to close futures for ammunition to the Middle East, and the terrorists will not forgive the disruption of deliveries.
    Now I read the news from the media 404: shelling of Donetsk regions with shells of the "DNR-DNR" system is underway. Are they completely crazy?!

    If the Armed Forces of Ukraine had a shortage of shells, their artillery would not have ironed civilian objects in Donbass with senseless shelling. So, in fact, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have an abundance of shells and missiles.

      I think that the psychology of crests is different here: what I don’t eat, I bite ... they hit civilians not because of excess ammunition, but because of their obstinacy and dibilism, so I think that even if they have everything left one shell and they will be threatened with encirclement and death, they will still fire it at civilians ... because they are so brainless and this is not cured, it is eradicated ...

    The gun goes silent.
    Levka turns around and yells:
    - Bring the projectile, huh?
    - There is no more! Load up on corn! Bumbarash answers.

    Tell that to the residents of Donetsk. You write some nonsense. Just to write.

    The head of the Crimea, Sergei Aksyonov, announced the attack on the drilling platforms of Chernomorneftegaz. Saved five people, he wrote in his Telegram.

    Apparently, new shells are being delivered regularly across the Western border of Ukraine. Is partisan Kovpak missing in Ukraine?
