The majority of the military equipment that the West delivered to Ukraine, according to the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), was either destroyed or damaged by the Russian Military Forces.
According to SVR, NATO nations have given Ukraine 1,170 air defense systems, 440 tanks, 1510 infantry fighting vehicles, and 655 artillery systems since December 2021. The majority of these weapons were destroyed or damaged by the Russian military.
The Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation has information that NATO nations have transferred 1,170 air defense systems, 440 tanks, 1,510 infantry fighting vehicles, and 655 artillery systems for Ukraine during the period of aggression against Russia starting in December 2021, according to the press office of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service. The Kiev authorities also received 1,206,000 artillery shells, 609,000 anti-tank rounds, and 9,800 MLRS missiles from NATO nations. The statement made by SVR.
The Foreign Intelligence Agency stressed that the Russian military destroyed the majority of the military hardware that Western nations had sent to Ukraine.
Between 4,000 and 7,000 artillery rounds are presently used by the Ukrainian military every day, which is more than Western armament manufacturers can supply. A Pentagon official acknowledged in November 2022 that the Russian military in Ukraine utilized up to 20,000 munitions per day. According to AFP, due to winter and ammunition shortages in both Russia and Ukraine, the amount of ammunition used by both sides has reduced over time.
Members of the 27-nation union are also thinking about ways to enable the EU to jointly buy ammunition for Ukraine assistance. On Monday, February 20, in Brussels, the Union’s foreign ministers will discuss this in great detail.
According to Estonian Prime Minister Kaja Kallas, the alliance can use the 4 billion euros in the European Fund for Peace (FEP) to buy about 1 million 155mm artillery shells for Kiev.
