EU member countries suffer from severe arms shortage, says EU’s top diplomat



Strong points

European countries continuously supply military weapons to Ukraine.
The head of diplomacy called for careful spending on military weapons.

Brussels. A senior European Union (EU) diplomat warned on Monday that stockpiles of weapons in the organization’s countries were beginning to run low as members continued to supply arms and ammunition to Ukraine. Simultaneously, the diplomat urged EU members to better coordinate their spending on military equipment. European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said in a debate with European lawmakers: “I wouldn’t say that the military stocks of most member states are depleted, but considerably reduced, because we want to protect the Ukrainian people. Offer a lot of potential.

He said that the number of military equipment will still need to be increased, and the best way will be to do it together, which is also economical.

At a meeting in the Czech Republic last week, EU defense ministers discussed military equipment and resources, as well as bulk purchases of weapons such as ammunition and air defense systems that Ukraine currently needs. The European Union is a political and economic forum of 27 countries located in Europe.
