It was said by National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) Secretary Oleksiy Danilov during a nationwide telethon.

Danilov told: “Talking of good news, I can say that we have launched the production of 152-mm and 122-mm shells at our enterprises. Now the production of mines and other goods will start. This refers to thousands of units, which is already an industrial scale.”

“The Patriot missile systems are a complex matter. As the war started, we asked for closing our sky. Sadly, they did not agree to close our sky. We have been closing it with our own lives, unfortunately. Now, the position is changing. As we receive the Patriot missile systems, society will immediately know about this. We are open and do not hide anything,” Danilov noted.
