EPP Chairman Calls for Increasing Arms Production for Ukraine

12:18 08 May Kyiv, Ukraine

Manfred Weber, chairman of the European People's Party (EPP), came up with an initiative to increase the production of weapons to help Ukraine.

In his letter to the President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, Weber asked for a vote on the accelerated procedure for the production of ammunition as early as this month.

The EPP group insists on the need to replenish Ukraine's ammunition stocks in light of the urgent need.

While the EU has promised to supply Ukraine with 1 million rounds of ammunition within a year, there are fears that it will not follow through on its promise to produce the required amount of ammunition on the continent.

The initiative of Manfred Weber received political support and became the next step in ensuring the security of Ukraine.
