The United States and NATO have supplied Ukraine with vast amounts of military aid in the country's fight against invading Russian Federation forces. But a recent analysis reveals that Ukrainian artillery forces in the Donbas are using up Western-supplied artillery ammunition at a far faster pace than the United States can produce them. Ukrainian forces in the Donbas region in the country's East are using up to 7,000 shells a day. The United States currently only produces around 500 shells a day. The conflict, which started in February, has sparked a scramble by Western powers - particularly the United States - to track down suitable weapons systems with which to better equip Ukraine's military.
