Since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the Ukrainian military has been firing thousands of artillery rounds a day. At the same time, in Afghanistan, NATO forces released 300 shells per day.

As written The New York TimesNATO representatives say that the amount of artillery used in Ukraine is staggering.

It is noted that the forces of the North Atlantic Alliance could fire 300 artillery rounds per day in Afghanistan and not worry about air defense. However, Ukraine can fire thousands of rounds per day and continues to desperately need air defense systems to protect against Iranian-made missiles and drones launched by the Russian Federation.

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

The publication also cites the words of a high-ranking NATO official who stated that Ukrainian defenders fired 6,000 to 7,000 artillery shots every day in Donbas last summer. At the same time, the Russians fired 40,000 to 50,000 shots per day.

For comparison, the United States of America produces only 15 thousand shells every month.

At the same time, Defense Express analyst Serhiy Zgurets reminded that the strikes of the Russian occupiers on the energy infrastructure of Ukraine do not affect the front line in any way. The expert emphasized that the occupying country will not be able to break the resistance of Ukrainians by striking the energy infrastructure.

In addition, during the release of the snake, the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine used an ingenious trick. They installed French-made Caesar self-propelled guns on barges that were operating within ten kilometers of the coast. Thanks to this, the fighters were able to shell the positions of the occupiers on the island.
