Ukraine is facing a shortage of munitions, leading to scaled-back military operations, attributed to a drop in foreign assistance.

General Tarnavskyi highlighted the lack of artillery shells and the impact on combat readiness.

General Oleksandr Tarnavskyi said there is starvation “across the entire front line” and a “very big problem” due to “the drop in foreign military aid.”

He said: “We’re replanning tasks that we had set for ourselves and making them smaller because we need to provide for them… In some areas, we moved (to defence), and in some we continue our offensive actions – by manoeuvre, fire and by moving forward. And we are preparing our reserves for our further large-scale actions.”

Ukrainian state media reported: “Frontline Ukrainian troops face shortages of artillery shells and have scaled back some military operations due to a shortfall in foreign assistance.”

President Zelensky said the Ukrainian army wanted to mobilize 500,000 soldiers, but that this would cost 500 billion Ukrianian hryvna ($12 billion). “Where do we get the funds?” he asked.

Despite these challenges, Ukraine is hopeful about receiving Western fighter jets, with pilots currently undergoing training in Romania, potentially impacting combat operations in 2024.
