David Goldman quotes a US military intelligence professional with 30 years' experience

"What we are seeing is what Ukraine wants us to see, they have done a masterful job painting the picture. But we need to keep in mind that the real numbers - training, manning, equipment, readiness and all the other boring stuff - have been hidden from us and we really don’t know what is or is not possible until we know those details. Hopefully, the folks inside the Pentagon have the real numbers on both the Ukrainians and the Russians. They won’t be able to make accurate assumptions and plans without them."

Russia, on the other hand, replies with 60,000 rounds — per day (by way of comparison, US forces fired a total of 60,000 artillery rounds during the entirety of Operation Desert Storm, in 1991.)
