The Western edition of the Financial Times again updates the topic of ammunition consumption during the Ukrainian conflict. The article states that, that Ukrainian troops spend up to 6 thousand artillery shells.
From an article in FT:
for comparison: about as much artillery ammunition is produced in a small European country per year. The publication writes, that Western companies are trying to increase the production of ammunition, but there are many problems: from raw materials and lack of production lines and capacities to insufficient number of trained personnel in enterprises.
In a Western newspaper article:
Some ammunition components are so scarce, that their supplies to the troops (in the West) increased from several months to several years. Many factories are already operating in 3 change, recruitment is underway. However, as the edition writes, company management faces a lack of investment in order to, to keep the pace of production. Some European countries began to think about the cooperation of military enterprises, that, eg, jointly purchase the necessary raw materials.
Earlier, the Western press wrote, that the Russian army daily releases up to 20 thousand artillery shells.
