US signs agreement with Bulgaria and South Korea to supply Ukraine with ammunition: FT reveals details
The administration of US President Joe Biden plans to increase the supply of critical ammunition for Ukraine. To this end, the United States has signed an agreement with Bulgaria and South Korea to supply 155 mm ammunition to Ukraine.
Negotiations are also underway with Japan on the supply of ammunition. This is reported by the Financial Times.
The U.S. is reportedly actively working to increase the supply of critical 155mm ammunition to support Ukraine's counteroffensive against Russian forces along the entire front line. The effort includes deliveries from international partners in the near term, with plans to increase U.S. production over the next two years.
Officials said the U.S. has already reached agreements with Bulgaria and South Korea to supply shells to Ukraine.
According to U.S. officials, Ukraine now produces up to 8,000 artillery rounds per day, which exceeds U.S. production. According to the publication's report, the Biden administration knew months ago that Ukraine could face supply problems due to the high rate of ammunition use and has increased efforts to transport shells to the front line since the counteroffensive began.
In addition, the U.S. Army is building additional production lines, including converting facilities in Ontario, Canada and building new assembly lines in Texas. Army officials report the possibility of new facilities for loading, assembling, and packaging 155-mm projectiles in Arkansas, Iowa, and Kansas.
Earlier it was reported that Germany updated the list of military aid that was transferred to Ukraine. In particular, the Armed forces of Ukraine among other weapons received dozens of reconnaissance drones and self-propelled anti-aircraft systems Gepard.
We shall remind you that according to the survey, it is important for the United States of America that Ukraine emerge victorious from the war started by Russia. This opinion was expressed by three quarters of Americans surveyed, it is shared by both Democrats (86%) and Republicans (71%).
