Quote: "What our armament manufacturers are working on right now will cause big trouble to these fascists who invaded our land.
It is with great pleasure that I announce that we established the production of both 152 and 122 mm calibre [Soviet-style shells – ed.] at our enterprises.
Mines and many more things will be produced by our defence sector enterprises from now on. We are talking about thousands of items, this is already an industrial scale."
Details: Danilov added that the rocket program approved in Ukraine is being 100% financed and personally controlled by President Zelenskyy.
Danilov has not yet confirmed that an anti-aircraft system Patriot would arrive in Ukraine in short notice, but he said he was convinced that the partners’ support of Ukraine would be continuous and ever-increasing.
Previously: At the beginning of November Oleksii Reznikov, the Minister of Defence of Ukraine, stated that the enterprises of Ukroboronprom, the Ukrainian defence industry company, established the production of 122 mm and 152 mm calibre shells as well as that of 120 mm mines which are already being widely used. He hoped that during a few months Ukrainian manufacturers would "increase the volume of production."
