Ukraine received 800 million euros worth of ammunition from Serbia

Jun 22, 2024

The ammunition that Serbia supplies to Western countries ends up in Ukraine. Ukrainian troops could already receive ammunition worth several hundred million euros. This was reported by the Financial Times.


President Aleksandar Vučić gave the exact amount deducted to the FT in general and presented the situation as a business opportunity, insisting he did not align himself with either side of the conflict.

"This is part of our economic revival and it is important for us. Yes, we export our ammunition. We cannot export to Ukraine or Russia, but we have many contracts with the Americans, the Spanish, the Czechs, and other countries. What they are doing with this is what they do in the end - it's their business," Vucic said in an interview with the FT.

This amount was collected from 2022. However, it does this through third countries, given its close relations with the Russian Federation.

He added that even if he knew where the shells would eventually land, it was none of his business.
