NATO Chief Reveals Alarming About Truth Aid to Ukraine – Ukraine is Depleting Allied Supplies

On February 13, 2023, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that Ukraine’s Western allies are having difficulties meeting Ukraine’s constantly increasing demand for ammunition to be used in the war against Russia. 

“The war in Ukraine is consuming an enormous amount of munitions, and depleting allied stockpiles,” Jens Stoltenberg said to reporters on February 13.

“The current rate of Ukraine’s ammunition expenditure is many times higher than our current rate of production. This puts our defense industries under strain,” the NATO Secretary General continued.

Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine on February 24, 2022,  the Collective West has been arming Ukraine to hilt with a constant barrage of military aid, along with copious injections of economic aid that has gone over $100 billion 

Stoltenberg conceded that NATO is slipping up in its attempt to keep Ukraine afloat with a constant stream of weapons. The wait times for the necessary projectiles  such as large-caliber ammunition has increased from 12 to 28 months. 

While  exact numbers for the amount of munitions the Ukrainian armed forces have expended over the past few months have been rather murky, a French military source claims that the Ukrainians have fired roughly 6,000 artillery shells a day in July 2022.

According to Press TV, the Ukrainians have been calling for larger numbers of projectiles since the end of August, a period when Ukraine has mounted counter-offensives against Russia. In the present, the Russian military is allegedly prepping for an expected offensive against Ukraine, which has prompted the latter to beg the West for more aid. 

So far, the US has beaten every other country in terms of its delivery of military aid to Ukraine. According to Press TV, it has supplied Ukraine with 1,600 Stinger surface-to-air missiles and 8,500 Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine. Gregy Hayes, the CEO of Raytheon Technologies, said this supply is the equivalent of 13 years of Stingers production, and five years of production for Javelins. 

Indeed, the US is compromising its national security needs to wage a silly proxy war in Ukraine. Such resources would come more in handy at the Southern border, where there’s an actual national security threat in the form of drug cartels, human traffickers, and other unsavory actors. The US’s depletion of military resources to prosecute a conflict thousands of miles away is peak imperial overstretch.
