Ukraine’s Armed Forces lack artillery shells of large calibers, and defense industry companies are due to fixing that. Oleksandr Turchynov, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council said that during the exhibition of military vehicles in Kyiv.
‘Sure, we currently experience the lack of large-caliber shells. Ukroboronprom and many private defense companies are working to change the situation for the better. Several weeks ago, we tested new heavy caliber shells and now our defense enterprises are to arrange production of all kinds of shells widely used by the army. It’s a well-known fact that the Armed Forces have been using mostly Soviet-made ammunition lately. We never produced much ammunition,’ he said.
Tuchynov added that next year, the country’s defense industry is going to launch the serial production of multiple missile launchers.
