Zelensky says EU decision on ammunition for Ukraine a strategic step toward victory
According to Ukrinform, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated this in his nightly video address.
"We have several important decisions today, primarily defense decisions. Our European partners have agreed on a joint plan to accelerate the supply of shells for our artillery. This decision is worth 2 billion euros. It provides for both emergency supply and production of ammunition. This is a strategic step. It gives us confidence in our unity, in the immutability of the movement towards victory over the terrorist state. I am thankful to all our partners in Europe! To everyone who is truly interested in making Europe strong and free," he said.
He noted that a new defense package from the United States was also announced today.
"The amount is 350 million dollars. These are rockets for HIMARS, artillery shells and other ammunition - everything we really need to support our warriors. I am grateful to President Biden, Congress, and all Americans!" Zelensky said.
