Thanks to Western assistance, the Ukrainian army received artillery superiority in the southern direction.

Journalists of The New York Times write about this , referring to analysts and the Ukrainian military.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine now have an advantage both in terms of the range of ammunition and in terms of high-precision projectiles.

The Ukrainian command says that in the Kherson direction, the sides fire approximately the same number of shells, but Ukrainian strikes are not only longer-ranged, but also more accurate due to satellite-guided missiles and artillery shells provided by the West.

“We can get to them, but they can’t get to us. They don’t have these weapons,” Alexander, commander of an artillery battery on the Kherson front, said.

He added that the intensity of the fire on this sector of the front has decreased three times: “It is real to fight them.”

It is reported that the Ukrainian army demonstrated new capabilities by attacking moored ships in the Crimea on October 29, which was once considered an impregnable bastion.
