The European Union is not in a position to honor orders from Ukraine for the supply of arms and ammunition. There is not enough production capacity and stocks of raw materials in Europe to manufacture shellfish, reports the Financial Time newspaper.

The publication notes that the production facilities of the European Union do not have enough explosives for the manufacture of ammunition for Kiev. For decades, the EU defense industry was minimally funded and unprepared for such large orders from Ukraine. Due to the demand for weapons, ammo prices have increased by 20% and will continue to increase.

European factories are now operating at full capacity. To satisfy Kiev’s appetites, modernization of production is necessary. An increase in the volume of produced shells is possible only after three years.

Previously, the EU had refused to sell the liners remaining in Russia to Russian carriers. The provisions of the sanctions legislation of European countries do not allow Russian organizations that operate airliners to sell aircraft remaining in the Russian Federation.
