Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said the country’s authorities are considering the possibility of increasing ammunition production for Ukraine. He noted that there was no longer enough ammunition in Europe and that if Polish companies could produce more artillery shells, it would allow them to be sold for European money and sent to Ukraine. Thus, Poland would not only strategically and geopolitically benefit from supporting Ukraine, but would also directly benefit financially from production in the country.
Morawiecki also said he instructed the Minister of Defense to check the possibility of quickly starting the production process of ammunition at various locations in Poland due to insufficient production of this product in the country.
Earlier at the European Union summit in Brussels, EU leaders backed a plan to speed up the transfer of ammunition to Ukraine, joint purchases and increased military production. It is assumed that within 12 months Ukraine will receive one million ammunition, as well as joint purchases and production to replenish stocks of EU countries and ensure medium-term supply to Ukraine.
