Zelensky receives fewer artillery shells since war between Israel and Hamas | War Ukraine and Russia

Ukraine has been receiving fewer 115 millimeter artillery shells since the war between Israel and Hamas. President Volodymyr Zelensky reports this. This ammunition is widely used on the front lines in the east and south of Ukraine.

“It’s not that the United States said: we’re not giving Ukraine anything. No! It’s just that everyone is fighting for themselves,” Zelensky said, referring to the stockpiles of artillery shells. “This is life. I’m not saying this is positive, but this is life and we have to defend what is ours.”

Zelensky praises US efforts to boost production. The Americans are an important ally of Ukraine and Israel, both of which receive military support from Washington.

Ukraine and Russia have been at war since February 2022 and are struggling to maintain their ammunition supplies.

Russia is saving up missiles

According to Zelensky, Russia is stockpiling missiles so that they can be used against Ukraine in the winter. He thinks the Russian army has fewer missiles than before. Millions of Ukrainians were left out in the cold last winter due to Russian attacks on the Ukrainian power network. Thanks to Western aid, Ukraine has been able to strengthen its air defenses.
