The war is being decided by artillery, and its outcome depends on what weapons Ukraine can get from the West, the deputy chief of Ukraine’s military intelligence, Vadym Skibitskyi, said in a report in the UK newspaper the Guardian on June 10.
According to Skibitskyi, Ukraine is at a disadvantage on the battlefield in the area of artillery.
“Everything now depends on what (the West) gives us,” said Skibitskyi.
“Our western partners have given us about 10% of what they have,” Skibitskyi added.
Ukraine is using 5,000-6,000 rounds per day, according to him.
“We have almost used up all of our (artillery) ammunition and are now using 155-calibre NATO shells.”
He added that while Europe is giving Ukraine some rounds in smaller calibers, their stocks are running ever lower.
