CNN learns of US fears due to the low amount of ammunition in Kyiv

CNN: the US is concerned about the low amount of ammunition at Kyiv The US fears that another 40,000 ammunition delivered to Ukraine this week may be used up in a few days

The US is concerned about the low the amount of artillery ammunition from Ukraine and thought about increasing supplies. This is reported by CNN with reference to a representative of the US administration.

While the US is sending Ukraine 18 155mm howitzers and 40,000 artillery rounds as part of the assistance announced by the Joe Biden administration this week, even that amount could be used up in days, raising the possibility that Ukrainian forces will run out ammunition, writes CNN.

According to the source, during the fierce fighting, Ukrainian forces could use up to several thousand artillery ammunition per day.

Western countries, including the United States, began supplying weapons to Ukraine even before the start of the Russian special operation. At the end of March, Russia's Permanent Representative to the UN Vasily Nebenzya said that Western states and Ukrainian troops can use the vehicles of the transport company DHL, as well as vehicles with medical symbols and UN and OSCE emblems when transporting weapons.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, in turn, said that Russia would consider convoys with foreign weapons as a legitimate target.

Nevertheless, on April 15, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said that the United States had not yet noticed Russia's attempts to stop the supply of American weapons to Ukraine.

Through the supply of weapons, Washington is trying to help Ukraine to take the strongest possible position “both on the battlefield and at the negotiating table,” said US national security adviser Jake Sullivan.

According to him, the United States is working around the clock to deliver weapons and military assistance to Ukraine and is looking for weapons from its allies and partners, which, if transferred, the Ukrainian military will be able to use without additional training. So, he cited the recent transfer of S-300 air defense systems by Slovakia as an example.

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov assured that the supply of weapons to Ukraine by Western countries would not prevent Russia from achieving the stated goals of the special operation.
