"We have finished the negotiations": Finland announces the start of artillery ammunition production for Ukraine

The initiative will cost tens of millions of euros

Finland has announced the start of production of artillery ammunition for Ukraine. The decision is expected to be approved by Christmas.

Helsinki's plans were announced by Defense Minister Antti Häkkänen to the Iltalehdelle publication. According to him, Finland will make an important decision to increase the production of artillery shells in the next few weeks.

"We have finished the negotiations, agreeing that Finland will continue to increase the production of heavy ammunition for Ukraine's armament. This decision will be made shortly," Häkkänen said.

Häkkänen emphasized that the issue is likely to be resolved before Christmas (December 24) so that Ukrainians fighting for their existence receive a valuable and necessary Christmas gift from the Finns.

"The plans are ready. A plan to significantly increase ammunition production has been announced. The goal is to support Ukraine even more. At the same time, we are further increasing the readiness of Finland and the Nordic region to produce ammunition," the minister said.

It is reported that the cost of increasing ammunition production reaches tens of millions of euros.

As reported by OBOZ.UA:

- Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba previously admitted that the EU would likely not be able to supply the Ukrainian Armed Forces with a million shells by March 2024, as promised. According to Bloomberg, this will complicate Ukraine's ability to compete with Russia's own production.

- To fulfill its promise, the EU should redirect exports from third-world countries to Kyiv, said EU High Representative Josep Borrell.

- Ukraine has set up ammunition production in one of its partner countries. The company operates in three shifts.
