Denmark and Norway will i collaboration secure 8,000 artillery shells for Ukraine.
This is stated by the Ministry of Defense in a press release.
“The Ukrainians continue to have a great and urgent need for ammunition for their freedom struggle against Russia. Together with other EU and NATO countries, Denmark is busy meeting a number of different military contributions. Our cooperation with Norway is an important example of this, says Acting Minister of Defence Troels Lund Poulsen.
The collaboration means that the Danish Armed Forces will assemble Norwegian 155mm artillery shells with compatible Danish propellant charges, prison tubes and fire tubes into complete artillery shots. After that, they will be donated to the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
The immediate assessment from the Armed Forces is that the ammunition could be used by the Danish CAESAR artillery pieces, which the Danish Parliament decided to donate to Ukraine at the beginning of the year, which is why the shots are expected to be donated together with the systems.
