Interfax-Ukraine reports this .
“There are long-term solutions, but they are very important for us. This is a decision to produce ammunition, primarily 155 caliber. We have agreements with two leading American companies on joint production of 155-caliber ammunition in Ukraine.
The implementation of these projects will take years,” he said during the telethon.
According to the minister, the process of producing 155-caliber ammunition takes “a minimum of two, maximum of three years.”
“To start this production, we need the technologies that our partners own. Ukraine has never produced these calibers, you know this. So the sooner we start, the sooner we will have these solutions up and running for the Defense Forces,” he said.
