The US armed forces have organized a repair facility in Poland for artillery pieces supplied to Ukraine, Report informs referring to The New York Times.

A third of the roughly 350 Western-made howitzers donated to Kyiv are out of action at any given time, according to US defense officials and others familiar with Ukraine’s defense needs.

Swapping out a howitzer’s barrel, which can be 20 feet long and weigh thousands of pounds, is beyond the capability of soldiers in the field and has become a priority for the Pentagon’s European Command, which has set up a repair facility in Poland.
