Russia Advances On Ukraine As They Start To Run Out Of Ammunition

Ukraine is slowly running out of ammunition to fight against the invasion of Russia and the prospect of victory may not be within reach because of it.

Ukraine’s domestic stores of ammunition have been significantly depleted and the military is being forced to rely on ammunition provided by Western allies.

The deliveries, however, are not coming fast enough for Ukraine to launch a defense and Russia is slowly gaining ground in the eastern Donbas region.

Initially, Russia lost equipment, but over the months this has reduced and the chance of Ukraine garnering a peace deal with Russia has all but evaporated. Russia is the unmistakable stronger force.

An adviser to the Ukrainian government, Oleksandr Danylyuk said, “The strategies and tactics of the Russians are completely different right now. They are being much more successful,” adding, “They have more resources than us and they are not in a rush. There is much less space for optimism right now.”

Because of the ammunition shortage, the Ukrainian military has had to rely on artillery and Vadym Skibitsky, deputy head of Ukraine’s military intelligence, admitted that the Ukraine’s military is relying on Western weapon systems and is losing the war against Russia.

“This is an artillery war now,” said Skibitsky. “And we are losing in terms of artillery.”

“Everything now depends on what [the West] gives us,” he added. “Ukraine has one artillery piece to 10 to 15 Russian artillery pieces. Our western partners have given us about 10 percent of what they have.”

“We have almost used up all of our [artillery] ammunition and are now using 155-caliber NATO standard shells,” said Skibitsky. “Europe is also delivering lower-caliber shells, but as Europe runs out [of ammunition to give], the amount is getting smaller.”

The United States has committed to providing around four days’ worth of artillery – 220,000 rounds of ammunition.

Skibitsky himself has emphasized the need for the West to supply Ukraine with long-range missile systems, which can destroy Russian targets from a distance.

Only a handful of these weapons have been promised, but deliveries will take weeks to reach Ukraine and then the military will have to be trained to be able to use the systems.

“The Russians are using these long-range artillery systems against us, often without any response, because we don’t have the means,” said Danylyuk. “They can attack from dozens of kilometers away and we can’t fire back. We know all the coordinates for all their important targets, but we don’t have the means to attack.”

Fighters are also suffering far more casualties than they were at the beginning of the invasion, and it has been reported that around 1,000 Ukrainian soldiers have been taken out of the fight daily, with around two hundred of those dying.

Danylyuk said that the lack of ammunition is far more of a problem than manpower being killed off – around six million have volunteered to fight – but they lack the weapons to fight with.

“We would be sending them to their deaths without equipment,” said Danylyuk.

  3. Iived and worked in Ukraine in the 1990-s. the entire country is so corrupt and run by criminal jews,
    I finally had to leave Kharkov after two years (and losing $100,000) I moved up north to Moscow, Russia,

    Wow, that was “cowboy capitalism” at it’s best! After two more years in Moscow, I made a ton of money
    and came back to Wyoming……………with a new Russian Christian bride !

    Today, 2022…Ukraine is still even more corrupt and totally run by criminal jew Zelensky and his oligarchs.
    The 40 Billion that our corrupt congress and Biden sent to Zelensky will be lining the pockets of Ukraine crooks.

  4. We should have never interfered in Ukrain. It was our fault. To be clear Obama and Hillary made this mess by proping up Zylinskie. When Ukrain had an uprising. We was the reason they went against Russian influence. It was western interference in their elections that ousted their former leader Victor prochenko. USA needs to focus on its own problems and let Russia take care of its own problems. And yes Ukrain is Russian. Always has been always will be.

    1. You would make a great advertisement for North Korea and dear leader. I bet that you are one of those people who only think that you are perfect. If you had ever been under the thumb of someone who only sees you as a commodity to be used and then disguarded.you would understand. People have the right the the form of government that they want. Russia controlled many countries as the USSR
      ( for you people who don’t know what that was look up UNION OF SOVIET SOCAILIST REPUBLICS) go Ukraine more power to you.

      1. All though in favor of supporting apparent “Nazi Regime” grab a gun and other military gear and head on over to Ukraine! I’ll pass on their apparent-corrupt regime!

  6. We have many problems at our border and Biden does nothing about it. There are people slipping through that are sent to hurt us, and Biden doesn’t care. It is time to keep our money here to remedy our problems, which are many. We do not want One World Order. Ukraine does, but Russia doesn’t. Why are we helping Ukraine????

    1. All the Ukrainian people want is the chance tobe FREE. What is so wrong with that? If you ‘ve never been dictated to ( we are closing in on that) you don’t know what loss of freedom means.

  7. When Obama authorized a US sniper specialist from the 101 Airborne, B.Ch.Bovenger, to train the Maidan shooters, he had a plan with it: He knew, he would, by a “Regime Change” that got radical Nationalists to power, cause a full-scale Civil War – and the slaughter against the Ethnical Russians in East Ukraine would more or less force Russia into it. He had tried that out, in 2008, with Pres. Sakashvili in Georgia, and it had worked (and Sakashvili also sent 3 snipers to the Maidan). With strict control of Press and Information, and solid pressure on Europe, NATO could be brought in, as usual (see Yugoslavia et al.) to pay a great lot of the costs in “Ukraine-Defense” support.
    The consequences – and REAL POLICY AIMS – would be
    A. destroying the steadily improving EU-Russian Cooperation and Friendly Neighborhood;
    B. cutting the increasing European cooperation (and growing dependence) on (cheaper) Russian energy sources;
    C. isolating Russia and driving it out of Europe: Preventing any chance of a United Europe;
    D. getting the European partners of NATO firmly back under US control (no European Defense Force!);
    E. Creating with Ukraine (and attempted Georgia, Belarus) a closer strategic circle against Russia’s defenses;
    All these targets have been reached, though with a cut-down Ukraine – but still, A GENERAL SUCCESS!
    We all have been fooled again – as in Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria, etc, etc. – the usual fraud, thanks to a controlled and obedient Press and Media – and even Entertainment. It’s all important in “1984”!

    1. You may have one interesting question in this matter:
      “If Obama started this war in 2008, why is it still going on now? And why didn’t we hear of it until this spring?”
      And the answer is simple: Because of Trump!
      Obama had started other wars when he could sell them as “Defense of Our Values” or other lies, and he would gain for his re-election by being a “War-President” (though a unique one with a Nobel-“Peace”-Prize). For this war, he needed a “Substitute President” through who he could still “command the actions of the White House and Government -which he had indicated himself, jokingly, as “what I’d like best to do”- BUT HE DIDN”T GET IT!
      Hillary failed and, unexpectedly, THE TOP GUN MAVERICK (not the film, but reality) WON.
      That cut Obama’s plans short – and I must say: Trump should have cut it completely, as he could have done. Why he did not see through this fake network of Pentagon and Deep State, and especially the involvement of all the supposedly “Government” services -which, in fact, worked against him- like FBI, Home Security, and CIA (who had been part of the Ukraine crimes) – why he didn’t see through it, at the start? – Well, he was NOT one of that gang: He was not a professional Liar and Politician – and Pentagon and all kept him uninformed.
      But, as soon, as Obama’s “Substitute President” was cheated up into the White House (I don’t understand how it can keep that color and not blush) – as soon as the chance was back, the dormant Civil War was heated up again, the bombardments of the city of Donetsk, its schools, housing, etc, taken down and 14,000 killed …..
      And we know the rest – as Obama had planned it.

  8. The solution is very simple. Doing the will of others is an act of service to mankind. In this case do not perceive the Russians and Vladimir Putin as such bad guys. They are not. In fact, history may conclude they are the good guys in this fight for freedom to be a virtuous nation. So, with this in mind Volodymyr Zelensky needs only to surrender and stop fighting. This simple act will save a multitude of Ukrainian lives. I love the Ukrainian people too. I love the Russian people too. I am American. I am also Canadian born. My roots are of the French disposition. So, I think this would work. Then we could have peace through prosperity. What do you think?
