Germany's Defence Minister Boris Pistorius said the EU will not hit a one-year target of sending a million artillery shells to Ukraine at a meeting with his EU counterparts in Brussels, APA reports.
So far, EU nations have only managed to provide 300,000 rounds from their existing stocks.
Countries are now placing joint orders for 155-millimetre shells but there are doubts over the capacity of defence companies to churn out enough in time.
"Unfortunately, the cautionary voices are now right," German Defence Minister Boris Pistorius said at a meeting with his EU counterparts in Brussels.
"The one million will not be reached. We have to assume that."
