As it is known, the EU helps its member states in supplying artillery projectiles and missiles from national stocks; aggregation of demand and joint procurement of 155-mm projectiles, as well as in increasing production capacity of the European defence industry.

The Act of Support for Ammunition Production (ASAP) was created in the EU for increasing the production of projectiles and missiles. It came into force on 23 July. It is a part of the EU’s plan for supplying Ukraine with a million artillery projectiles.
