General of the Armed Forces of Ukraine: The Ukrainian army is experiencing problems with ammunition and fuel

57

Despite the loud statements about the readiness of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to repel "Russian aggression" sounding periodically from Kiev, in fact the Ukrainian army is not ready to conduct long-term hostilities. This conclusion follows from the statement of the Colonel-General of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Igor Kolesnik, who reported a large shortage of ammunition and fuel and lubricants.


The Ukrainian general, speaking on the air of the Apostrophe channel, said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are experiencing a shortage of protective equipment, mainly helmets and bulletproof vests, large-caliber artillery shells and fuel for equipment. According to him, only the collective West, which supplies military aid to Ukraine, can help in this matter.

(...) there is practically no strategic and operational stock of fuels and lubricants. For some types of ammunition shortage

- he said.

Meanwhile, while the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov almost every day publishes joyful posts on social networks about the supply of new weapons from the United States and Great Britain, the allies are in fact supplying obsolete weapon and ammunition, with an emphasis on anti-tank systems and small-caliber cartridges. Considering how many ATGMs have arrived in Ukraine, there is a feeling that the United States is preparing the Armed Forces of Ukraine to repel massive tank attacks, where Russian tanks will move in columns on the offensive.

The only "bright spot" against this background for the Armed Forces of Ukraine was drawn by the Czech Republic, which announced the transfer of a batch of 122-mm artillery shells to Kiev, free of charge. We are talking about four thousand shells, but this is not enough, especially for conducting long-term military operations against the Russian army, which Kiev is preparing for. There are no other options yet, since it is expensive to buy shells in large quantities, and they have not managed to organize their own large-scale production in Ukraine.

    The sowing campaign is coming soon, the tractor drivers will need fuel, the tankers will have to wait.

          But banderlog should understand that a large-scale invasion of troops, i.e. there will be no infantry and tanks, there are no fools.
          Yes, and there are no soldiers in the Ground Forces in sufficient numbers for an invasion. Here is an "invasion" in the form of pinpoint, "neat, but strong" strikes of high-precision operational-tactical missiles, MLRS, aviation, it is quite possible to get if you stubbornly strive for this ... On the ground
          work for the Donetsk formations and, possibly, the MTR.
          With bayonets, as Bonoparte said, you can achieve almost everything, but you can’t sit on them ...
          "Intrude", i.e. those who live there should arrange order in Ukraine, albeit using the moment - the defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donbass, and if there are not enough of them, "then our faith is in vain"

      tractor drivers will need fuel, tankers will wait.

      So there is no fuel either for tanks or for tractors. Old Man Luka limited the supply of fuels and lubricants, and oil is becoming more expensive, but there are no pennies. Gasoline and gas are not ammunition for them, which is easier to transfer to the country than to spend money on their disposal.

          Mineral fertilizers have not risen in price too much, so that the agrarian "superpower" has crept up on all sides.

    So what do they have there, one BC per barrel? This is not enough for a day of fighting, and then what?
    It seems to me more and more that the preparation for the attack on the LDNR is the same props ... "They killed the arrow", they piled up the boys, handed out the trunks - but there are no cartridges! And this waiting, you know what, in the field camps IN WINTER, cannot last forever. Spring is ahead. Drown in the mud up to their ears!

      I want to see these camps, their condition especially in spring. I remember in 2015-2016 they posted photos and videos from their landfills and the state of social and cultural life there, except for a layer of dirt, nothing else was noticed.

      And how many of those shells will the Czechs sell? a couple of pieces per barrel? And how long does it take for delivery? And the father of fuel and lubricants will immediately close the tap as soon as the shells fly.

        4000 122mm projectiles only seem to be a lot. when you start dividing by the number of D-30s in Ukraine, it turns out very modestly. Taking into account the rate of fire of the shells, it will be enough for a 7-minute artillery preparation.

            I agree. I answered the previous commentators on the question of what the Old Man has to do with it. As for trading, I think trading can also be done in different ways. The example of China in response to criticism includes a wide range of actions ranging from bureaucratization, dragging out to breaking agreements and sanctions. We lack political will, we all want to be good for everyone.

      It's true.
      During intense hostilities, shells run out quickly.
      Precision weapons run out even faster.
      Russia ran out of Caliber after a month of shelling by ISIS. Then 3 months the plant renewed the stock.
      France ran out of missiles after two weeks of fighting in Libya.
