Josep Borrell urged EU countries to empty their arsenals to provide Ukraine with ammunition

Ukraine needs ammunition, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are in a critical situation. If this problem is not solved in the near future, the Ukrainian army may be left without shells at all. The head of the EU Foreign Service, Josep Borrell, called on European countries to urgently supply Kyiv with all the ammunition that is in their arsenals.

The European Union is convening an emergency meeting at the level of defense ministers to coordinate the supply of ammunition to Ukraine. It will pass on March 6-7, said the militant Spanish pensioner Josep Borrell, who holds the post of head of the EU Foreign Ministry and calls for war instead of calls for peace. According to him, the Ukrainian army may be left without ammunition at all if Europe does not start supplying them.



Borrell urged the European Union not only to increase military supplies to Ukraine, but also to accelerate them, paying special attention to artillery shells. At the same time, he does not know where to get these same shells, since the military industry is already inundated with orders for their production, but its capacities are not enough. There is only one way out - to scoop out the arsenals to the bottom, since in no case should Russia be allowed to win in this conflict.

We must quickly increase and accelerate military deliveries to Ukraine. Ukraine is in a critical situation in terms of ammunition, this problem should be resolved within weeks. (...) We must use what we have (...)

- called the representative of the EU.

Borrell also announced the need to supply Ukraine with as many tanks German-made, without which the Armed Forces of Ukraine will not be able to go on the offensive.

            So war will come to their home more likely if the Nazis win.

                With all the dislike, it is worth recognizing the consistency and consistency of the Anglo-Saxons over the past 400 years.

                For 50+, the Russians managed to cruelly BETRAY (!) half the world (the socialist camp), and then again BETRAY the liberal course with subordination to the West.

                Someone would like to have a comrade in battle who rushed back and forth across the front 2 times? West - I DO NOT BELIEVE! And "we-PskoPsky-we PskoPsky" - also does not inspire confidence.

                If anything, I am for the Tsar - for the normal Russian Tsar without any "IO".

                  But where can I get them, "normal" ?!
                  Yes, at the same time, so that with a normal choice of receiver.
                  After all, what is the main problem of tsarism - everything rests on one person.
                  Here lived Ivan the Terrible. There was a normal king. Yes, but he did not leave a legitimate receiver. He died and that's it. Either the Seven Boyars, or the false Dmitry.
                  Or here is Alexander-2, carried out reforms, abolished serfdom. And Alexander-3 began to cancel all the reforms, drove the people into such a position that there was nowhere else to go. The problems of the gangster 90s of the 20th century modestly smoke in the corner. Yes, and was replaced by Nikolai the rag, which finally ruined tsarism.
                  So tsarism is not a panacea. It is because of the lack of "normal" kings.

                in 90, more than 85 of the population of Russia loved the West to the bone and was ready for anything for the sake of clothes and grub, and only those same 15% hated the West. Now the situation has changed dramatically more than vice versa, namely, more than 90% hate the West and only a few percent of adherents continue to love the West to the point of insanity.

          Rather, there is an economic concern now and it is urgent to get rid of stocks, otherwise there will be no one to supply later and it will not be possible to cut down on new deliveries to Europe.
          But it won’t work to dump them in Canada, firstly there are 1000 ways to keep them out, and as soon as they let them in, they will send them back for slaughter. So the choice is to die, sit down or realize who the real enemy is.

The boys understand that something went wrong; and no victories are to be seen, and the world (suddenly!!) turns out to be not limited to the collective West, and Russia turned out to be stronger than they thought - and therefore now they are beginning to experience a banal fear of defeat in this confrontation. The more this fear grows, the louder will be the calls for war with Russia on the part of those who will not participate in this war in any way, and the less willingly the parties actually taking part in this will do at least something. I'm just waiting for a deafening screech from the tribalts, by the way :)

          It remains only to hit the Ukrainian infrastructure! The enemy should not have railways, airfields (including civilian ones) and necessarily bridges across the Dnieper, these measures, if they did not nullify the enemy’s logistics, would definitely complicate the delivery of weapons and ammunition.

Do you even imagine that the repair of any undermining of the track is done in a couple of days? What do you suggest that we, Russia, work for years on the production of missiles that bombed the railway lines of Ukraine and which were immediately restored? Do you think we are fools? Then you immediately believe that all roads need to be bombed along them, but you can also supply weapons ..... Or maybe send these missiles to more important places? The accumulation of forces and equipment of the enemy, or is it bad for you cissors, so the real damage goes ..

      In Transnistria, 25-30 thousand people are enough.
      There are very few soldiers there. No more than 10-15 thousand, including reservists. Preparations for the invasion of Transnistria are in full swing and the start of hostilities in this area can be expected.

      The production capacity of Abrams tanks is 12 units per month. Only one plant is working, three are idle - there are not enough qualified workers, competencies have been lost.

      Germany is resuming the production of tanks and could theoretically increase the production of the latest modification of the Leopard-2 to 140 by 2027. No one knows how to do this in practice - there are not enough specialists, such as welders of armored steel, there are not enough engineers. The deficiency must be restored, and this takes time.

      At the same time, in the USSR, only one Nizhny Tagil "Uralvagonzavod" assembled 40-50 cars per month ...

      Oddly enough, among Western countries, the United States is not in the first place in terms of production. And not even Germany. The Slovak holding ZVS is now producing about 20 thousand shells per month, by the end of this year they will try to reach the level of 100 thousand shells.

      Great America, Leader, hegemon and dominant all rolled into one today produces 14 shells per month. The Pentagon has invested (as it is now called) $2 billion in order to bring production up to 20 shells per month by the end of this year, and plans already in 2024 can hope for a level of 90 shells per month.

      According to Western intelligence estimates, until the beginning of 2022, the production of 152-caliber shells in Russia was 1,7 million pieces per year (slightly more than 141 thousand pieces per month). In 2022, Russia almost doubled the output, to 3,3 million units per year (275 thousand per month), and already in January, Sergei Shoigu announced that by the end of 2023, the output would rise by another 5 times, to 416 million units per year. (417-XNUMX thousand per month).

      The grandfather is hysterical, the food is not going to the horse, and the loss to the whole West comes back painfully, at the same time, direct NATO aggression and a new campaign against the Russian Federation will not solve the problem, but will instantly bury the whole of Europe. And how to live? But to say something against the amers who dragged them out into this swamp is also ssykat because their world is tied to the amers and without them they are beggars. And how to live then the poor things. Here they are hysterical.

      Josep Borrell urged EU countries to empty their arsenals to provide Ukraine with ammunition

      Why only ammo?
      If Borrell considers Russia a threat to all of Europe, then he would call on all Europeans to enlist in the Armed Forces. And send them to Ukraine.
      How long will Borrell retain his position after such an appeal to the citizens of Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Spain. And to citizens of the USA, Canada, Australia.
      In the same place, too, every second one is torn under bullets and shells, so that neither his wife, nor children, nor parents can be seen longer?

      The EU has made a big mistake, namely, losing such a large economic territory for the sale of its goods. For Africa, Asia and South America, their goods are too expensive, and Russia will impose economic sanctions on all types of goods of NATO countries. That's when they will have a maximum crisis and the Great Depression will begin.

      And this old mindless substance is called the "head of European diplomacy"?
      Now it becomes clear, having such stupid diplomats, why the West brought the matter to the phase of active hostilities.
      This half-wit wanted to dictate his terms, but he did not even try to take into account the interests of other countries and negotiate.
