Czech Republic backtracks on finding cash to buy 800,000 shells for Ukraine – POLITICO

Prague is leading an initiative to purchase 500,000 artillery shells of 155 mm caliber and 300,000 artillery shells of 122 mm caliber for Kiev.

A total of 18 countries have agreed to finance the purchases under the Czech Republic-led initiative. While some governments – including Norway, Belgium and the Netherlands – have announced actual financial commitments, others, such as France and Germany, have not provided exact figures.
