Every bullet manufactured in Europe should serve to protect Europe."

Details: Kuleba emphasised that he discusses the shortage of ammunition in discussions with partners, "I complain about the lack of ammunition at every meeting with our partners. They all know about it and acknowledge their mistakes".

"They have decided too late to increase their production, sign long-term contracts and put new production lines into operation. Unfortunately, we are paying the price for these mistakes not down the line, but right now," Kuleba explained.

He also stated that efforts are being made to ensure that the ammunition currently procured by European states from third countries becomes available to Ukraine.
