Quote: “US and Ukrainian officials don’t yet have a clear or singular explanation. 

Russia may be rationing artillery rounds due to low supplies, or it could be part of a broader reassessment of tactics in the face of successful Ukrainian offenses.”

Details: According to CNN sources, either way, the striking decline in artillery fire is further evidence of Russia’s increasingly weak position on the battlefield nearly a year into its invasion.

Representatives of US intelligence believe that Vladimir Putin, the Russian President, is apparently clambering to shore up domestic political support.

  1. “Russia may be rationing artillery rounds due to low supplies, or it could be part of a broader reassessment of tactics in the face of successful Ukrainian offenses.”

    They compensate for the lack of artillery ammo with an increase in meat puppets. That’s their reassessed tactic.
