EU ministers agree plan to jointly procure one million shells for Ukraine
“I proposed EU member states jointly procure 1 million shells for Ukraine. Glad that EU foreign and defence ministers approved the initiative today,” Kallas wrote on Twitter.
According to her, this helps to ramp up European defence industry and boost security.
Germany's defense minister said they would sign the deal today.
According to Sky News, the shells are expected to reach the frontlines within the next year.
Earlier, EU High Representative Josep Borrell stated before the meeting of EU ministers that the European Union countries know what kind of ammunition Ukraine needs to defend against Russian aggression, and are considering ways “to provide ammunition to Ukraine, the quicker and in the greater quantity possible, at the cheapest price.”
