The majority of weaponry and military gear from the US aid package for Ukraine is already stored in warehouses in Germany and Poland. This will facilitate its rapid delivery to Ukraine following the approval of the corresponding law, as reported by CNN.

US officials are not openly disclosing this information. However, a CNN source familiar with military aid to Ukraine mentioned that pre-positioning the military aid closer to Ukraine will significantly reduce delivery time and allow Ukrainian forces to swiftly address the ammunition shortage they are currently facing.

It is reported that artillery shells will be among the first materials to reach Ukraine after the US Senate approves the relevant law and President Joe Biden signs it. The American leader has promised to do this promptly upon receiving the document from the Senate.

Ukrainian officials are also working to expedite the delivery of shells and equipment to their intended destinations after crossing the border with Poland. Nevertheless, this still poses a significant logistical challenge due to the large volume of weaponry expected from the US.

The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) warns that due to logistical issues, Ukraine "is likely to continue to experience persistent shortages of artillery ammunition and air defence systems in the coming weeks." According to ISW, this limits Ukraine's ability to conduct effective defensive operations.

ISW also speculates that Russia may attempt to attack transport networks, particularly railways, to hinder the delivery of ammunition to the front line. They note that the attack on railway infrastructure in the Dnipropetrovsk region last Friday could be part of this plan.

Recall that The Gaze reported that the UK will provide Ukraine with its largest-ever military aid package of 500 million pounds sterling.

The additional funding of 500 million pounds sterling will be used for the swift delivery of urgently needed ammunition, air defence systems, drones, and engineering support.
