Ukraine is losing against russia in terms of artillery. This was announced by deputy head of military intelligence of Ukraine Vadym Skibitsky to The Guardian British newspaper.
"This is an artillery war now", - Skibitsky said.
According to him, the frontlines are now where the future will be decided, "and we are losing in terms of artillery".
"Ukraine has one piece of artillery to 10-15 russian artillery pieces. Our western partners have given us about 10% of what they have", - Skibitsky stated.
According to him, Ukraine is using 5 000 to 6 000 artillery rounds a day.
"We have almost used up all of our ammunition and are now using 155-calibre NATO standard shells", - he said.
He noted that Europe is also delivering lower-calibre shells, but their amount is getting smaller.
Skibitsky’s remarks corroborate with that of the U.S. military intelligence cited by a recent Agence France-Press report.
According to military sources who spoke to the agency, Ukraine has depleted its Soviet and russian-designed weaponry and is now completely dependent on allies for arms.
