Finnish authorities intend to start producing artillery ammunition for Ukraine. The decision should be made before Christmas.

This was stated by Finnish Defense Minister Antti Häkkänen in an interview with Iltalehte.

"We have concluded negotiations on how Finland will continue to increase the production of ammunition for Ukraine's armament. This decision will be made in the near future," Häkkänen said.

According to the official, this issue is likely to be resolved before Christmas. He added that a plan to significantly increase ammunition production has been announced.

"The intention is to support Ukraine even more than we do now. At the same time, we will continue to increase the readiness of Finland and the Nordic countries to produce ammunition," Häkkänen added.

It is noted that their production will be increased by tens of millions of euros.
