Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Dmytro Kuleba, the Secretary-General of NATO Jens Stoltenberg, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell will discuss the issue of providing quicker arms to Ukraine, especially ammunations, Josep Borrell told journalists, APA reports.

He stressed that the meeting will be held on February 21.

"You know that the most important, pressing issue today for the Ukrainian army is to have a continuous flow of ammunition of 155-caliber – also of 152-caliber, but 155-caliber is the most important one.

The Russian artillery shoots about 50,000 shots a day. A day. Ukraine needs to be at the same level of capacity. They have canons but they lack ammunition.

So, we do everything we can. It is the most urgent issue. If we fail on that, really, the result of the war is in danger.

So, today at the Foreign Affairs Council, tomorrow at NATO, and in two weeks in Stockholm with the Defence Ministers. At the end, it is the Defence Ministers who have to take these kinds of decisions. Defence is a Member States’ competence, and it is the Defence Ministers who are the “masters” of these kinds of decisions," said Josep Borrell.
