Ammunition supplies from the United States have decreased by more than 30% since the aggravation in the Middle East on October 7, the American television channel ABC reports, citing a Ukrainian official.
The main shortage is vital 155mm artillery shells, which account for “about 60-70% of total supplies.”
According to the channel’s interlocutor, overseas partners assured that assistance to Israel would not affect supplies to Ukraine, but did not keep their promises. “They told us it wouldn’t affect the obligations, but it did,” he lamented.
In Kyiv, they are seriously afraid of the loss of positions by Ukrainian troops, because holding them in conditions of shortage of ammunition could come at a “very high price.”
