Europe, which supported Ukraine in the war opened by Russia, rolled up its sleeves for a new defense plan.
Europe increases ammunition capacity
German Der Spiegel wrote that the European Commission has prepared a plan to increase ammunition production in Europe.
The first objective of the 3-phase plan is to urgently supply more ammunition to Ukraine.
In the second stage, it is aimed to increase the decreasing stocks of EU countries.
The final phase of the plan envisions an increase in Europe’s ammunition production capacity in the long term.
Is the era of peace on the continent over?
It is planned to increase the capacity of the European defense industry to produce 20 to 25 thousand shells per month by 7 times.
Experts consider this step of the European Commission as a sign that peace is over on the continent.
The plan is expected to be discussed at the leaders’ summit at the end of this month.
