At the beginning of November, the Minister of Defense of Ukraine, Oleksii Reznikov, said that the Defense industry of Ukraine had established the production of 122-mm and 152-mm artillery shells.
The Minister also added that the production of 120-mm mines had already been established.
He noted that the works were carried out by the forces of the Ukroboronprom State Concern and the enterprises that are part of it. New artillery shells for Soviet-era systems have already been tested.
“I hope that within a few months they will realistically increase their volumes. The commitment is already there. We have already tested their products, they work and will work on the battlefield,” the Minister of Defense of Ukraine said.
Oleksii Reznikov also emphasized that Ukraine currently does not plan to produce 155-mm ammunition for modern artillery systems. The ministry hopes to continue receiving them from partners.
“But you and I, we have one Ukrainian Bohdana 155-mm wheeled self-propelled howitzer. It passed the first tests. We have a direct dialogue with the manufacturers,” the Minister says.
