The European Union will allocate 2 billion euros for the supply of ammunition to Ukraine. This was reported by the France Presse agency on Monday, citing diplomats.
It should be noted that the ammunition supply plan was agreed at a meeting of the Council of Foreign Ministers of EU countries. It took place today in Brussels.
Recall that at the beginning of March it became known that the United States will provide Ukraine with a military aid program of 400 million dollars. It will include ammunition for the HIMARS MLRS, howitzers and Bradley fighting vehicles. Kiev will also receive armored bridge layers, charges and materials for the demolition of buildings.
In addition, part of the allocated funds will go to the training of Ukrainian fighters, maintenance and support of transferred weapons. This aid program has become the 33rd in a row, which has been allocated by the American side to Kiev since August 2021 from Pentagon reserves.
