European Union leaders have endorsed a plan to jointly procure 1 million rounds of artillery ammo for Ukraine over the next year, the Associated Press (AP) reported.

The plan to ramp up the supply of shells to Ukraine was approved by EU foreign and defense ministers earlier this week and has today been signed off by the bloc's 27 member states at a summit in Brussels.


A statement setting out the meeting's conclusions on Ukraine said: "Taking into account the security and defense interests of all member states, the European Council welcomes the agreement... to deliver ground-to-ground and artillery ammunition to Ukraine and, if requested, missiles."



Joining the summit by video call earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said he was thankful for the proposal.


Ukraine has emphasized how important the shells are to battles of attrition, with thousands being fired each day by both sides. In an evening address earlier this week, Zelenskyy said he was expecting an increase in ammo supply from Western partners, CNN also reported.
