“We have also decided to significantly increase stocks of certain munitions that are crucial for the conduct of hostilities,” RIA Novosti quoted from an excerpt from the document.
It should be noted that NATO made a number of conclusions and acknowledged the emergence of new challenges posed by certain military technologies, but intends to “maintain technological superiority”.
However, it will not be easy to implement these plans, since the European industry, working in intensive mode, is ready to produce about 300,000 shells a year, although only the aid program for Ukraine requires a million. Without expanding production and eliminating problem areas in supply chains, such as gunpowder and explosives, this is a must. At the same time, defense concerns are in no hurry to do this at their own expense, waiting for long-term government contracts.
