Ukraine is losing to Russia in the ongoing “artillery war”, said Deputy Head of Ukrainian Military Intelligence Vadim Skibitsky, quoted by the Guardian.
The deputy head of intelligence said that the Ukrainian troops have one artillery gun for 10 & ndash; 15 Russian ones. The Armed Forces of Ukraine use from 5,000 to 6,000 artillery shells a day. “We have nearly used up all of our [artillery] ammunition and are now using standard NATO 155mm rounds,” he added. Europe supplies shells of smaller caliber, but they are running out, and supplies are accordingly reduced.
Now the Ukrainian army is completely dependent on Western arms supplies, the military added. According to him, partner countries send about 10% of what they have to Kyiv.
He added that hostilities will remain “artillery war” in the near future.
Now the issue of supplying Ukraine with multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) is being discussed. The United States promised to supply weapons, they will transfer the M142 HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System) MLRS. The White House emphasized that the weapons would not be used to strike Russian territory. The State Department claimed that they would not send long-range missiles.
The UK also promised to supply the MLRS. The country's defense minister explained that London's support for Ukraine is changing along with Russian tactics.
