NATO stocks for the production of weapons for Ukraine are gradually depleted due to the frequency of their use, and the reduction of Western weapons will lead the Armed Forces of Ukraine to a catastrophic defeat, military expert Oleksandr Bartosh said.
He stressed that Ukrainian troops are still holding on only thanks to the supply of Western weapons. Therefore, any reduction will affect their combat capability, PolitExpert reports.
“Arms supplied by the United States and other NATO countries are being ground up by Russian troops. Therefore, Ukraine needs to receive these funds on a systematic basis in the future. Since Washington and its European partners have a limited supply of artillery pieces, they also need them for their own military forces. Therefore, it is not necessary to count on an increase in such supplies, ”the expert said.
Bartosz added that the production of weapons takes time and costs, so in the near future Ukrainian troops are expected to reduce their combat capability. They will not be able to resist the Russian army, he concluded.
