Bulgaria is unable to provide 155mm shells to Ukraine, Minister of Defense Dimitar Stoyanov said. According to him, the army does not have ammunition of such caliber and that is the reason why it cannot provide military assistance in this aspect.

Minister Stoyanov added that Bulgaria respects the agreements, as well as the possibilities for military aid to Ukraine. "Despite the provision of ammunition and armaments to Ukraine, the conflict does not subside, but deepens. What is happening now is movement of nuclear weapons to forward positions, which in no way leads to resolution of the conflict," the minister also said.
