Ukraine does not buy ammunition in Russia. The government plans to build plants for the production of scarce ammunition. This was stated by Defense Minister Stepan Poltorak during a briefing with Georgian Defense Minister Levan Izoria, broadcasted by 112 Ukraine.

"A week ago, the government of the country adopted the concept of creating ammunition production enterprises, this task was determined, among other things, by the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine. I very much hope that this will be done in the near future," Poltorak commented.

The Minister of Defense also noted: "Before these enterprises will be created, we are  purchasing ammunition from our partners."

Answering the question whether Russia is among these partners, Poltorak said: "No. Russia does not sell ammunition to us."

Earlier Stepan Poltorak noted that there are enough ammunition in Ukraine's warehouses to fulfill the task that faces the Armed Forces.
