We are talking about ammunition of caliber 155 millimeters, which is suitable for artillery of the NATO standard.

Estonian Defense Minister Hanno Peukur

said this following the meeting of European ministers in Brussels .

Earlier, the head of European diplomacy,

Joseph Burel,

presented a three-stage plan to support Ukraine and increase Europe's defense capabilities.

He suggested that the pan-European peace fund would additionally allocate 1 billion euros to Ukraine for the purchase of ammunition.

Another 1 billion euros should be allocated to replenish Europe's own reserves.

The third stage should be the development of the defense industry in EU countries.

Deliveries of one million shells to Ukraine in the coming year should cost Europe about two billion euros.

16 of the 27 EU member states, as well as Norway, which is not part of it, should take part in them.
