Russian troops experience ammo shortage amid detonations at southern depots
Natalia Humeniuk, a spokesperson for the Southern Ukrainian Defense Forces, claims Ukraine’s army has successfully neutralized three Russian ammunition depots in the south, causing disruption to their ammunition supply
She shared the information on Espreso TV.
"Ukrainian Defense Forces continue to operate in the south. We are mainly engaged in counter-battery work, which is quite effective. Over the last day we eliminated 34 more occupiers, 5 large-caliber guns, 3 radar and electronic warfare stations. We also eliminated three ammunition supply points, which has a significant impact on the enemy's ammunition supply. That is, the enemy's shell shortage is already becoming quite commonplace, despite the fact that the occupiers had pulled up some supplies the day before. The invaders have dispersed their stockpiles along the left bank, now they are trying to bring shells to the positions where they need them from time to time," said the head of the joint coordination center.
Natalia Humeniuk highlighted that Ukrainian forces' fire control over Russian transport and logistics routes has prevented steady supplies for Russian troops. Furthermore, any accumulations managed by them are being systematically eliminated.
On August 26, the Ukrainian Defense Forces destroyed 11 Russian ammunition depots and 32 military vehicles in the Tavria sector.
On August 27, the Ukrainian General Staff reported that the Russian army has lost 550 soldiers, 6 tanks, and 11 drones in the war against Ukraine.
