“The high rate of artillery shell consumption in Ukraine clearly illustrates the need to invest even more in artillery production,” a senior military official said at the Reagan National Defense Forum in California.

According to him, now one and a half times more funds are allocated to the production of shells.

“Compared to the defense budget just five years ago, we are investing almost 50% more in ammunition production,” Austin said.

During the presidency of Joe Biden alone, the production of artillery shells in the United States has quadrupled, indicated the head of the Pentagon.

Earlier, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba said that kyiv received only about 300,000 artillery munitions of the million that the European Union promised after the Munich Conference. Kuleba linked failure to meet European promises with “tons of technical problems.”
