Since the beginning of the full-scale Russian invasion, Ukrainian defenders have been firing thousands of artillery shots a day. Because of this, problems with weapons began in the West.

About this reports The New York Times.

According to NATO representatives, they are stunned by the amount of artillery used in Ukraine. It is known that in Afghanistan, the forces of the alliance released 300 shells per day and did not worry about the work of air defense.

“A day in Ukraine is a month or more in Afghanistan”– said defense expert at the European Council on International Relations Camilla Grand.

Also, a high-ranking NATO official said that last summer in Donbas, the Ukrainian military fired 6 to 7 thousand artillery shots every day. At the same time, the Russian occupiers could fire 40,000 to 50,000 artillery shells during this period.

It is known that only 15 thousand shells are produced in the USA every month. Washington needs 4-5 years to increase the production of 155 mm shells to the required volume.

However, US officials emphasize that their country still has enough equipment to help Ukraine and protect its interests in other territories.

It will be recalled that a number of Western companies began to expand their capacities and increase the production of weapons.

Also, the US Ministry of Defense organized a repair point for Western artillery weapons in Poland, which were transferred to Ukraine.
