The European Union has said that they will drastically ramp up ammunition production to support Ukraine against the growing threat Russia is posing.
The European Union will produce at least 1.3 million rounds of ammunition this year because we must continue to support Ukraine.
EU internal market commissioner Thierry Breton said during a visit to Estonia, “We are at a crucial moment for our collective security in Europe, and in the war of aggression run by Russia in Ukraine, Europe must and will continue to support Ukraine with all its means.”

“We will continue to enhance our production capacity, probably around 1.3 to 1.4 million… at the end of this year and continue to increase significantly next year,” he added.
Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said, “The West must get serious about strangling Russia’s ability to produce weapons.
“According to some data, up to 95% of the foreign-produced critical components found in Russian weapons destroyed in Ukraine come from Western countries.”
The French President Emmanuel Macron said on Friday the defence manufactures must ramp up production or arms supplies for Kyiv.
Macron said, “We must amplify the transformation we have begun.”
Macron continued, “We can’t let Russia think that it can win,” he warned that “a Russian victory would mean the end of European security.”
Moscow then summoned the French ambassador to protest of their “growing involvement” in the conflict with Ukraine.
Moscow claimed this week that they killed a group of French mercenaries in Kharkiv, the French ambassador Pierre Levy was “presented with evidence of Paris’s growing involvement in the conflict over Ukraine.”
The French Foreign Ministry denied the claims and said this is “another clumsy Russian manipulation.”
