I need ammunition, not a ride. The words of Ukrainian President Voldomyr Zelenskyy struck a chord with many Americans, including the CEO of AMMO, Inc. They’ve offered to donate one million rounds of ammunition to Ukraine.
Why Donate Ammunition to Ukraine?
Fred Wagenhals, CEO of Ammo Inc., explains:
Ammo Inc., and we as Americans stand firmly in support of Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence, as we stand for freedom and democracy everywhere. While we fervently hope for a quick and peaceful resolution to the crisis and that diplomacy will win the day, we condemn the Russian aggression and its threat to Ukraine’s territorial integrity and freedom. We recognize that events are unfolding rapidly on the ground in Ukraine, and we are prepared to move quickly as possible to support Ukraine as it continues to defend itself and its freedom.
Can AMMO Inc Make This Happen?
It’s certainly possible. AMMO, Inc owns their own brass production facility. They could tool up to make 5.45×39 brass for the AK-74, Ukraine’s service rifle. The most difficult problem likely lies in transportation, however there are no problems that can’t be managed with sufficient energy.
Regardless, it’s commendable of AMMO, Inc to offer to donate ammunition to Ukraine. While Javelins and other anti-tank missiles get the cool headlines, any war effort involves a considerable expenditure of small arms ammunition. Anything that helps replenish that supply is a significant benefit.
