The European Union is struggling to produce and send the ammunition it promised to Ukraine

But the bloc is finding it tough to come up with the goods. Some 300,000 rounds have been delivered from existing stocks in the EU so far, but the rest is harder to source before spring. EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said one solution would be redirecting current EU exports and prioritizing Ukraine.
