War in Ukraine, Russia is running out of weapons and ammunition.  Putin’s move: convert factories

Russia is advancing in the Donbass and seems ever closer to achieving the minimum goals set in the war in Ukraine. But Moscow has to face the supply emergency at the front. The Russian armed forces are short of weapons and ammunition, so much so that the Kremlin has decided to convert factories for war production. In fact, the Russian government has submitted to the Duma a proposal for a federal law that provides for “special economic measures” aimed generally at combating terrorism and “other operations”. The measure, informs Corriere della Sera, if approved, will allow “to establish special regulations on labor relations for some organizations and for selected production plants”.

In other words, a green light for the conversion of entire industrial sectors to increase the productive capacity of the military sector and to reorganize supply logistics in Donetsk and Lugansk.

Artillery is increasingly the main tool used by armies in the field in this conflict. The mayor of Sloviansk, Vadym Lyakhiev, denounced “numerous deaths and injuries” after the bombing carried out by the Russians with rocket launchers in the city of Sloviansk, in the Donbass region of Donetsk. According to the mayor, there are about fifteen fires going on, while the Ukrainian press speaks of at least 6 dead and fifteen injured.

The shortage of weapons and ammunition also weighs heavily on the other side, with the Ukrainian armed forces awaiting new supplies from the United States, including “Himars” rockets, 170,000 rounds for the 155mm guns, new radars.
