The European Union approved the allocation of one million artillery shells to Ukraine "as a matter of urgency"

Ukraine will receive one million artillery shells within 12 months, the corresponding decision was made at the summit of the heads of state and government of the European Union. Europe is also ready to provide Kyiv with ground-to-ground missiles.

A summit of EU leaders was held in Brussels the day before, at which Ukraine received a number of regular promises. First, the European Union confirmed that it would urgently allocate one million artillery shells to Kyiv. "Urgently" means within 12 months. Secondly, Europe promises to supply missiles to Kyiv, but only if Ukraine sends a corresponding request. Most likely, this request is already ready, signed by Zelensky and even sent to the relevant EU structures, given Ukraine's repeated demands for the supply of these types of ammunition.



The European Council welcomes the agreement in the EU Council on the urgent provision of ground-to-ground munitions and artillery shells to Ukraine, as well as, if it requests them, rockets. (...) by mobilizing appropriate funding from the European Peace Fund (...)

- the decision following the summit says.

In addition, the European Union decided to provide Ukraine with comprehensive assistance in all areas "as much as needed", or, as previously stated, "until a complete victory over Russia." Also at the summit, they condemned Belarus and Iran, which provide support to Russia. According to European politicians, Moscow should be in complete isolation.

Earlier, the European Union adopted the Borrell plan to allocate 2 billion euros to Ukraine from the European Peace Fund for the purchase of artillery shells. One billion will be spent on "urgent purchases" of shells, and the second will be invested in the production of ammunition "for the future."

        All the same, it is surprising, the European Union is an economic organization at its creation, what does the military component have to do with it? Again, Ukraine is not included in NATO, not in the EU, why would they decide to help her there? Apparently all this will not end well and this world is preparing for a global massacre ((((their goal is to destroy Russia, and Russia categorically disagrees with this and EVERYTHING that is in the military bins will go in.

          As a subject of public international law, the European Union has the authority to participate in international relations and conclude international treaties[15]. A common foreign and security policy has been formed, providing for a coordinated foreign and defense policy.

          No longer a purely economic organization. It was economic when it was called the European Economic Society.

        So far, it has not been possible to establish the exact area of ​​impact by means of geolocation, however, according to sources, a 20-meter funnel was formed at the site of the explosion, about 7-8 meters deep.



        A drone filmed a Tsar bomb strike with a heavy gliding air bomb. The video footage that appeared on the network shows a powerful bomb strike. According to Telegram channels, we are talking about the use of a universal planning and correction module equipped with a 1500-kilogram high-explosive aerial bomb.

            There was a topic on YaP - it was created by some friend who went to Poland to receive cargo (he lives in the EU) and he took pictures on the way to Poland - in the port and on the road. The port of Gdynia or Gdansk, I don’t remember already, is simply crammed with ammunition, military equipment and equipment going to Ukraine. And everything is in a new package, neatly wrapped with a film, etc. There are solid columns on the roads that carry all this and much more to Ukraine. All areas near the roads are crammed with standing machinery and equipment. Everywhere the military of different nations and armies. It seems that Poland has turned into a military camp working for Ukraine. You look at this, and then you look at the photo and video, where our fighters drag wooden boxes with peeling paint and rusty hinges to positions and bad thoughts and forebodings begin to creep in ....

        Of course, any number of shells can do things ... however, all the same, such a spacing in time gives us a total - 85 thousand shells per month. Considering that the Armed Forces of Ukraine spend 5-6 thousand shells per day, they spend TWO million shells per month.
        And now ukroreykh will receive shells from Europe for only two weeks a month.
        Roughly speaking, shells for 30 days of firing will arrive every 15 days. Actually, this is less than what was supplied before.

          You would have completed high school before trying to act smart. You are not good at math. 6000 shells x 30 days = 180 shells, which is a bit more than 000 million. If you knew how to count, you would understand that the announced number of shells would be enough not for 2 days, but for half a year at least 15 million / 1k = 180, (5).
          In other words, only from the EU, the Armed Forces of Ukraine receive +3000 shots daily for the whole year, this is a huge number in fact.

            And there are also deliveries of shells to Ukraine from countries outside the EU. And this is not only the US, UK and Canada, but also non-EU Norway, for example.
            Or Australia - in January there was a message that France and Australia would be engaged in the joint production of 155 mm caliber shells for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

              They deliver them through Poland. This is a hub. All shells are there. And they are still not enough. And not everyone will be able to deliver to the front line. They are in a very disadvantageous position. They can only shoot at villages from afar. Shooting at our positions is fraught with consequences. And to put them on the front line ...... No.

      When will you (the EU), together with Kiev, choke on your own shells? That's for sure - where fascism appears, Europe immediately appears there with an offer of its help. And he usually appears in the vastness of this very Europe.

        Well, you can guess about.
        155m ~ 45kg + crate, roughly 50kg.
        A car - 45 tons, let half of the space be occupied, in total, somewhere around 450 shells in one car. It turns out about 2250 wagons or 40-50 trains

          Not this way. Standard pallet 100x120 cm, these are 42 shells. We count 30 so that there are no questions with the weight of the pallet for the forklift (1,5 tons). 20 standard pallets, 10 shells in a 300ft container. There are 4 such containers on the railway platform. The Peace Fund promises roughly 20 shells a week, 17 wagons. This is one train per month.

        Adjustable artillery ammunition is very expensive. They are supplied by the piece. For example, in the autumn it was about the supply of 500 pieces. So we are talking about the supply of conventional ammunition, and not only 155 mm, but also smaller calibers. A million pieces roughly corresponds to the semi-annual consumption of ammunition by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

        This is exclusively 155 mm cast iron. That is the main consumable. Including and under the art planned for delivery. Again, now there are more barrels ready for work than the limit of shells, what's the point in supplying conditionally another 30 - if they sit with 777-3 shells a day?

        Guided, cunning and other shells go separately.

        Soviet shells go separately. Moreover, judging by the activity of UkrOboronProm, almost all types have already begun to turn. So 122 mm pulled up.



        Before that, there were 120 mm mines, 152 and 125 mm shells.



        The question is only in volumes, but again, the lines in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Bulgaria and Romania will be quite full of shells. It's just about the time it takes to deploy. The Czech Republic, Slovakia deployed Soviet-type lines and officially announced this, Bulgaria-Romania - they are doing it quietly on a commodity-market basis, Poland is understandable.

      Ukraine will receive one million artillery shells within 12 months, the corresponding decision was made at the summit of the heads of state and government of the European Union.

      But in the Russian General Staff they took on increased obligations and decided that Ukraine would receive ten times more shells and missiles, and the supply would also include cruise missiles, air bombs, and so on in an expanded range. And now, just catch and praise!

      Are you having trouble with math? 5-6 thousand per day is 150000-180000 per month (maybe you wanted to write a year?), But Ukraine itself produces shells and also supplies the United States.

        This million shells, from the collective EU and only 155 mm of cast iron (the main consumable). Moreover, the same Spain, Italy, Germany, Denmark, Norway, Poland, France - it is likely that they will transfer some additional amount from themselves. Also Australia, Canada, USA - they will transmit as before, or rather they have their own extension and transmission programs.

      I highly doubt they have that many. In the West, everything is the same as in our country - there is one thing on paper, and what is left in the warehouses. These statements are purely political in nature.
      I will give one example. Based on the news published today about the loss of the Saratov large landing ship, it can be concluded that the same Khaimars or some other ammunition of a similar class was used against Berdyansk in March 2022. As far as everyone remembers, then there was no question of transferring such weapons to Ukraine. In fact, it was already there! What does this mean, but that all issues on this war were agreed a few years before our NWO. Weapons and ammunition were brought there during exercises and quietly by sea. It was biding its time. Now the West is simply legalizing its supplies, while accusing Russia of attacking Ukraine. There is only one conclusion here, we must stop conducting at least some negotiations with these freaks, start destroying supplies at a distance (sabotage, ferry explosions, up to attacks from submarines). And let no one try to convince me that it is necessary not to do this, otherwise an atomic war will begin. Won't start! As they were ssykuny, so they will die. Accustomed to live beautifully and at the expense of others.
      And if you talk about the prospects for a nuclear war, then I will say this, if it is destined to be - it will be, and we are no longer able to change this. Moreover, if we continue to knead our boobs, then we will be dismantled and unwound even without nuclear weapons. Now is the time to make tough and even cruel decisions. And, although not everyone will support my opinion, there is no other way for our country and never has been. We have been to Paris three times, two to Berlin. But we have never been to London, and this was the main mistake. Every time we lost millions of citizens, we played into the hands of the inhabitants of the Cursed ISLAND...
