Ukraine’s Kuleba says EU planning to supply 170,000 shells to Kiev by end of March

Kyiv, Feb 25 (UNI) The European Union plans to supply Kiev with 170,000 artillery shells by the end of March. according to Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.
On Friday, the Financial Times newspaper reported that the EU was seeking $1.5 billion in emergency funding to provide Ukraine with artillery shells from overseas under a procurement plan proposed by the Czech Republic.
"During our call today, [EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell] reaffirmed the EU's full solidarity with Ukraine. I thanked him for his personal leadership and support over the past two years.
Artillery shells are the absolute priority right now. By the end of March, the EU plans to deliver almost 170.000 rounds to Ukraine and is working to further increase the volume of deliveries," Kuleba said Saturday on X.
Western countries, including member states of the European Union, have been providing military and financial aid to Kiev since the start of Russia's special military operation in Ukraine in February 2022.
The Kremlin has consistently warned against continued arms deliveries to Kiev, saying it would lead to further escalation of the conflict. Russia has been attempting to reach an agreement with NATO on security principles in Europe with the alliance for the past 30 years, but despite Moscow's protests, the alliance has kept expanding closer to Russian borders.
