MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The European Union will provide Ukraine with one million ammunition rounds, European Council President Charles Michel said on Monday.
Earlier in the day, a French news agency reported, citing diplomats, that the European Union has agreed on the ammunition plan for Ukraine worth two billion euros ($2.1 billion).
"The EU continues supporting Ukraine. We have mobilized the European Peace Facility and the European Defense Agency. Additional one million ammunition rounds from Europe coming to Ukraine. Matter of urgency to help Ukraine as it defends its country," Michel said on Twitter.
EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said later that the EU support package will consist of 3 tracks.
"A historic decision. Following my proposal, Member States agreed to deliver 1 mio rounds of artillery ammunition within the next 12 months. We have a 3 track approach: 1) €1 bn for immediate delivery; 2) €1 bn for joint procurement; 3) commission to ramp up production capacity," Borrell said in a tweet.
