Kuleba urges intl partners to implement Estonian initiative on joint direct purchase of ammunition for Ukraine
KYIV. Feb 20 (Interfax-Ukraine) – Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba thanked Estonia for putting forward the initiative to purchase ammunition for the Ukrainian army.
“I thank Estonia for proposing a joint direct procurement of arms and ammunition, which could start with the EU members providing 1 million 155mm rounds to Ukraine. Even though I can’t join today’s FAC in person, we strongly endorse the initiative and urge to put it into action,” Kuleba said on Twitter.
As reported, a proposal unveiled last week by Estonia to invest about EUR 4 billion ($4.3 billion) to jointly purchase a million ammunition has received tentative support from the Netherlands and Romania. EU foreign ministers are expected to discuss the project during their meeting in Brussels on Monday, with a final decision likely to be made at a meeting of bloc leaders in March.
