Zelenskyy: Ukraine Has Enough Artillery Shells for the First Time in Two Years of War

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced that, for the first time since the full-scale invasion, Ukraine has secured a sufficient supply of artillery shells.

“For the first time in years of war, not a single brigade is complaining about a lack of artillery shells. This has been the case for the past two months. However, there is still a lot of work to be done. The Czech initiative will continue. We are negotiating funding with all partners,” Zelenskyy stated during a press conference on May 16.

This announcement comes in the wake of a significant effort by allies to supply Ukraine with necessary artillery. During the Munich Conference, Czech President Petr Pavel spearheaded an initiative to locate and send approximately 800,000 shells of 120 and 155 caliber to Ukraine.

The news follows a challenging winter for Ukrainian forces, who faced a severe artillery shell shortage due to delays in receiving U.S. military aid.
