Due to the front's length, it takes time to achieve artillery parity with enemy Russian forces - Ukrainian Armed Forces Colonel Kravchuk
Anatoly Kravchuk, a military expert and Ukrainian Armed Forces Colonel, noted that Ukrainian forces are knocking out Russian military warehouses and artillery, and that it will take time until the enemy experiences problems with shells, and much less artillery will remain
He expressed his opinion on Espreso.
"After Severodonetsk, Russian forces transferred their forces to the Izyum, Kramatorsk, and Slavyansk directions, but they did not succeed there. Now we have drawn many of their forces to the South, and almost 20,000 Russian troops have moved to the right bank. If we now finally destroy Antonivskyi bridge, so that not even a civilian car could move there, then we cut off all their communications, accordingly, they remain trapped. It is important for us that significant enemy forces were withdrawn from the Donetsk direction. Now the enemy threw all his forces at Avdiivka, Maryinka, Pisky. But precisely because of such a stretched front, we cannot react very quickly, and it takes a lot of time for us to regroup and transfer artillery to another direction, and there is not enough artillery to throw across the entire 1,300 km front," - explained Anatoly Kravchuk.
The Colonel of the Armed Forces noted that, understanding the complexity of the situation, Ukrainian forces are still knocking out the enemy's warehouses, destroying artillery means, therefore it will take time to reach parity with the enemy in terms of artillery, when the enemy will have problems with shells and there will be less artillery.
