Russia running out of ammunition, losing ability to advance | ukraine news

In recent weeks, Russian artillery ammunition shortages have likely worsened as extremely punitive shell rationing is in effect across many parts of the front.

According to Ukrinform, the UK Ministry of Defense said so in its latest information update posted on Twitter.

This has almost certainly been one of the main reasons why no Russian formation has recently been able to generate operationally significant offensive action.

“Russia has almost certainly already resorted to issuing old stocks of ammunition that were previously classified as unfit for use,” British intelligence said.

A presidential decree of March 3, 2023 set measures for the Ministry of Commerce and Industry to circumvent the authority of defense industry officials who fail to meet their production targets.

“Russia is increasingly applying the principles of a command economy to its military-industrial complex because it recognizes that its defense manufacturing capability is a key vulnerability in the increasingly attritional “special military operation” “, British intelligence said.
