Production of 152-mm, 122-mm shells already launched in Ukraine – Danilov

The production of 152-mm and 122-mm shells has already been launched in Ukraine.

The relevant statement was made by National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) Secretary Oleksiy Danilov during a nationwide telethon, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

“Talking of good news, I can say that we have launched the production of 152-mm and 122-mm shells at our enterprises. Now the production of mines and other goods will start. This refers to thousands of units, which is already an industrial scale,” Danilov told.

Danilov did not confirm that Ukraine would soon receive the Patriot surface-to-air missile systems but expressed confidence that support from partners would be increasing.

“The Patriot missile systems are a complex matter. As the war started, we asked for closing our sky. Sadly, they did not agree to close our sky. We have been closing it with our own lives, unfortunately. Now, the position is changing. As we receive the Patriot missile systems, society will immediately know about this. We are open and do not hide anything,” Danilov noted.

A reminder that, according to the mass media, U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration is finalizing plans to send the Patriot missile systems to Ukraine.
