Since February, Czechia has been arranging an international effort to procure artillery ammunition for Ukraine from third countries, initially hoping to deliver 800,000 shells to Kyiv. As more countries pledged financial support to the initiative, the program could now supply the Ukrainian military with as many as 1.5 million rounds. Crucially, the arrangement allows the sellers to remain anonymous, removing the risk of potential punitive steps from Moscow.
