Ukraine will use up the remaining ammunition in its reserves within a month, retired French Colonel Pere de Jong suggested on TV5 Monde. According to him, already in mid-February, the Ukrainian Armed Forces will feel a significant shortage of shells.
“I believe that they have about a month’s worth of ammunition left, which is too little for the Ukrainians, because a month gives time until mid-February, and in mid-February it will be the height of winter,” the military man warned.
According to him, opponents are striving to stabilize the front and deliver strategic strikes at the current confrontation stage, but this requires appropriate capabilities. The colonel believes that today there is a moral and military exhaustion of Ukraine and an even greater increase in Kyiv’s dependence on US assistance.
Earlier, Kyiv military expert Alexey Getman reported that the Russian army attacked the site where the latest missiles were being developed for the Ukrainian Armed Forces. According to him, the Russian Armed Forces successfully eliminated the facility thanks to reconnaissance activities.
Former Prosecutor General and ex-Minister of Internal Affairs of the country Yuriy Lutsenko stated that since the beginning of the conflict, Ukraine has lost 500 thousand military personnel killed and seriously wounded. He emphasized that knowing the number of deaths, it becomes clear why the Ukrainian authorities proposed to mobilize half a million people. Lutsenko expressed the opinion that the country’s President Vladimir Zelensky and the current Minister of Defense Rustem Umerov should disclose the data he provided to the population – then it will be possible to remove all questions about the need for mobilization.
