Ukrainian artillery units have been forced to reduce ammunition expenditure by 80-90 percent to just 10-20 rounds per day. This was from a standard of 50 and peaks of close to 90 before major ammunition shortages began, accordingly personnel cited by the Washington Post, A member of the Ukrainian Army 148th Artillery Brigade, which operates Western-supplied 155mm howitzers, was quoted by the Post commenting regarding the shortages: “What can you do with 10 shells per day? It is barely enough to respond to their advances – we are not even talking about attacking their positions.” Ukrainian soldiers interviewed by the paper consistently said that they did not see Russian forces suffering from a similar ammunition shortages. One soldier cited highlighted that artillerymen were currently being provided a very limited number of shells to hit a given target, and that frontline troops were “very tired” which compounded the issue. “You should have some kind of a numerical advantage… It only gets worse and worse,” he lamented, stressing that “you can’t win a war only on motivation.”

Russian senior officers told their artillerymen to fire an artillery shell even if only one Ukrainian soldier was the target as they have that many shells.
