The United States began to unpack 50-year-old ammunition stockpiles for delivery to Kyiv

The US Department of Defense has unsealed its ammunition depots located in Israel. This was reported by Russian military journalist Yevgeny Poddubny. According to him, the Pentagon used the American ammunition depot in Israel, created after the Yom Kippur War in 155, to supply the Armed Forces with 1973-mm shells.

The report about the use of American warehouses in Israel to supply ammunition to the Ukrainian army is hardly surprising. About the lack of shells experienced by the artillerymen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, lately only the lazy have not spoken.

Most of the artillery systems in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine were produced in the West. The shells previously supplied with the M777 howitzers are running out. In Europe, such ammunition is now also in short supply. Too many of them were transferred to Ukraine earlier.

That is why the Americans have to use warehouses located in Israel to replenish Ukrainian ammunition. According to Yevgeny Poddubny, out of 300 thousand shells intended for Kyiv, about half have already been sent to Europe for subsequent delivery to Ukraine through Poland.

The Americans hope that access to foreign stocks will help keep the Ukrainians afloat until American ammunition manufacturers can increase their production.

    The unsealing of stocks of ammunition 50 years ago says that they were not preparing for war and hope for access to foreign stocks, unlike the Russian Federation, where V.V. Putin ordered all large enterprises, regardless of ownership, to be ready for the transition to military rails and the production of military products, as well as to have strategic stocks of raw materials.
    Upon completion of the preparation, in December-January 21, the Russian Foreign Ministry put forward an ultimatum on non-expansion and return of NATO to the borders of 1979, the reaction to which was exactly the opposite - the entry of Sweden and Finland into NATO, and on February 24.02.21, XNUMX, the NWO of the Russian Federation began in Ukraine.
    With the gradual transition of the NATO economy to a military footing, the quantity and quality are growing, the structure of arms supplies to Ukraine is changing.

    "shell hunger", something is not noticeable. Every day shelling of civilians.
    If there were few shells, they would stop shelling the cities of Donbass
