Dmytro Kuleba, Foreign Minister of Ukraine, stressed that Kyiv knows the defence production capabilities of partner countries amidst fears that the escalation in the Middle East will affect military support for Ukraine.

Details: Kuleba was asked whether Ukraine is ready for a possible reduction in military assistance, in particular artillery shells, due to the allies likely having to provide military support to Israel.

Quote: "We know the approximate number of shells that our key partners will produce – not just next month, but till the end of next year. I cite this example as evidence of how deeply this topic has been worked out in order to make the calculations necessary to ensure the sustainable supply for Ukrainian troops," the minister said.

Kuleba added that Ukraine "started ringing the bells a year ago," speaking about the need to increase arms production around the world, and in Ukraine in particular.

"There was a forum of defence industries held in Kyiv. Specific memorandums, contracts, alliances were launched there. It all works. Tomorrow good news will come from Germany, I will not spoil it for now, but you will hear everything about it," the minister said.
