“There is no shortage of shells in the Russian army and it is not expected, even taking into account the existing stock of ammunition,” the source said.

He added that defense companies will produce even more shells. Work is underway in this direction.

Earlier it was reported that the United States will produce up to 40 thousand shells per month for the uninterrupted supply of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We are talking about a large caliber – 155 millimeters.

At the same time, the Secretary of the US Army, Christina Wormuth, noted that it is impossible to increase production immediately. So far, the plan is for 20,000 such ammunition per month, and by spring 2025, 40,000 shells.

In December last year, the German television channel ARD reported that Western countries had nearly exhausted their stocks of artillery ammunition.

“(Shells) have now become a very rare commodity,” said Michal Strand, owner of the Czech defense company CSG. According to him, about 40,000 rounds a week are now fired from Western-made artillery systems in Ukraine.
