Politico reports that the difficulty of producing ammunition for Ukraine may lead to a split in NATO
NATO’s acute ammunition shortage caused by the situation in Ukraine could lead to a split within the alliance, columnist Lily Bayer wrote in an article for Politico.
“With countries already concerned about their own ammunition stocks and Ukraine in dire need of additional shells and weapons from allies, there is a risk that not all NATO allies will keep their promises to contribute to the alliance’s new plans,” she said.
According to the author, solving NATO’s current problem would require persuading individual countries to increase their defence spending as well as providing various resources, including large quantities of expensive weapons, equipment and ammunition.
At the same time, according to the author, the resupply process would inevitably take time, which would be a serious blow to the alliance’s aspirations. She also added that this will only be possible if countries can find companies capable of producing quality bullets quickly at all.
“The whole thing is very complicated. Obviously, it takes time as well as financial investment,” the author quotes former US Army commander in Europe Ben Hodge as saying.
