The U.S. has provided over $24 billion in security assistance to Ukraine since Russia’s invasion, but inventories of ammunition and key systems are running low.

  • Ukraine has a lot of Soviet-era artillery which is hard to find ammunition for, so they have been bringing in NATO-standard equipment, but the ammunition for that is running low as well, Mark Cancian, senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) stated.
  • The Pentagon is not comfortable sending any more ammunition or Javelin missiles to Ukraine as the U.S. needs to have its own supply stocked, he explained.
  • The pentagon is providing alternative weapons as a way to mitigate the risk of depleting the U.S. weapons stock, according to Cancian.
