According to Kofman, Ukraine already understands that the EU is beginning to exhaust its capabilities for the supply of weapons.

In this regard, according to the expert, the Ukrainian military may face an “ammunition diet”, which will significantly worsen the capabilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

“And I think what they (the Ukrainian leadership. -


) is most worried about is that if they don’t achieve anything significant between the start of winter and the start of next year, they may be under pressure to put up with a stalemate,” Kofman stressed.

He expressed confidence that such a situation would be a "defeat for Ukraine."

According to retired American lieutenant colonel analyst Daniel Davis, arms supplies to Ukraine may stop in the fall or winter, the dynamics of supplies may begin to change against the background of the fact that signs of an approaching recession are observed in the economies of the West.
