Lithuania allocates €35 million for ammunition for Ukraine: what is it about?

This statement was made by Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonite

On Wednesday, March 20, the Lithuanian government announced the allocation of €35 million for the purchase of ammunition for Ukraine. This will be done within the framework of the Czech initiative.

This statement was made by Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrid Šimonite. She wrote about it on her account on the social network X, formerly known as Twitter.

"The Lithuanian government has allocated 35 million euros for the purchase of ammunition for Ukraine as part of the Czech ammunition initiative. Together, whatever it takes to win!" the message reads.

It is worth noting that Finland will allocate 30 million euros to Ukraine for the purchase of ammunition for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. These funds will also be used to finance the Czech Republic's initiative to supply Ukraine with shells from third countries.

Earlier, the European Union announced the delivery to Ukraine of about half of the promised one million pieces of artillery ammunition. Ukrainian soldiers should receive them by the end of March. In total, Ukraine may receive more than a million rounds of ammunition this year in 2024 as part of the EU initiative.

Meanwhile, CNN reported that the Russian Federation produces 250,000 shells per month. This figure is almost three times more than the US and Europe produce to supply Ukraine combined.
