Kyiv’s allies are running out of ammunition: “The bottom of the barrel is now visible”

Kyiv’s allies are running low on ammunition they can provide to Ukraine, said Admiral Rob Bauer, Chairman of the NATO Military Committee, at the Warsaw Security Forum on October 3, as reported by The Kyiv Independent.

“The shortage of resources is now becoming evident,” the official stated. “The industry needs to significantly increase its production capacities.”

According to The Telegraph, the United Kingdom no longer has available weapons to donate to Ukraine. A senior British military official, quoted by the newspaper, called on other countries to ramp up their support. British Minister for the Armed Forces, James Heappey, speaking on the same platform as Bauer, admitted that British supplies “are looking a bit tight,” but emphasized that this does not mean aid is being stopped. “We must support Ukraine in the fight today, tomorrow, and in the future. A stoppage does not mean (Russian President Vladimir) Putin automatically stops,” Heappey said.

The Pentagon has also warned the US Congress of financial constraints as the funding for replenishing weapons sent to Ukraine is running low, causing a delay in supplying some US troops, as reported by the Associated Press. Financing Ukraine aid has become a focal point of legislative dispute among US lawmakers, leading to the removal of Republican House Speaker Kevin McCarthy on October 3.
