According to a statement from the concern's press service, the Ukrainian defence concern Ukroboronprom has partnered with Polska Grupa Zbrojeniowa (PGZ S.A.) to establish new production lines capable of producing a significant number of shells for 125-mm tank guns. This agreement was signed during Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's visit to Poland.

Due to the high risk of Russian missile strikes on Ukroboronprom facilities, new production sites will be established in Poland only. However, both parties will collaborate on the development of the missiles, with Ukraine contributing its technology and highly skilled specialists with relevant experience and expertise.

The concern also highlighted that it recently began producing 125-mm ammunition for tank guns in partnership with another NATO member country. As a result, Ukroboronprom will now be producing shells for tanks with two NATO members simultaneously.

In addition, the company has started manufacturing a third type of ammunition - a 122-mm artillery shell. The Ukrainian Armed Forces have already received the first batch of these shells.
