NATO is running out of weapons to send to Ukraine as 20 of the 30 member countries have completely depleted themselves while fighting a proxy war against Russia.
“In Ukraine, the kind of European war thought inconceivable is chewing up the modest stockpiles of artillery, ammunition and air defenses of what some in NATO call Europe’s “bonsai armies,” after the tiny Japanese trees. Even the mighty United States has only limited stocks of the weapons the Ukrainians want and need, and Washington is unwilling to divert key weapons from delicate regions like Taiwan and Korea, where China and North Korea are constantly testing the limits,” the New York Times reported.

“The amount of artillery being used is staggering, NATO officials say. In Afghanistan, NATO forces might have fired even 300 artillery rounds a day and had no real worries about air defense. But Ukraine can fire thousands of rounds daily and remains desperate for air defense against Russian missiles and Iranian-made drones,” they added.
The West is now poorer and less safe as a result of their intervention into Russia, as Russian energy profits soar to record highs. Still, stubborn Western countries refuse to back down.
Big League Politics reported on a recent expenditure approved last week for the U.S. to give air defense equipment and munitions to Ukraine:
“On November 23, 2022, United States Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced that the US government will supply Ukraine with air defense equipment and munitions as part of a military aid package valued at roughly $400 million.
Per the statement, the package features “additional arms, munitions, and air defense equipment from US Department of Defense inventories.”
