The conflict in the Ukraine has thrown a spotlight on the brutal effects of modern warfare. The armed citizens of the Ukraine are playing a vital role in defending their homeland from an armed aggressor, and logistics of the war effort are proving to be a key element to success in the conflict.
Now Remington, CCI, Speer and Federal Ammunition are teaming up to provide additional material support for Ukraine during the current crisis. These four companies are getting together to donate a total of one million rounds of ammunition to the Ukraine Armed Forces.
“The war in Ukraine has displaced millions of citizens and exposed average people to the horrors of war,” said Jason Vanderbrink, President of Remington, CCI, Speer and Federal Ammunition. “Supporting the relief effort is a crucial element of the global response and we are proud to do our part. It underscores how critical the Second Amendment is in America and highlights the importance of the ability of American Manufacturers to supply our allies with ammunition. We have long supported Ukrainian armed forces and we will continue to do so in this global cause to unite for democracy.”
Ukraine’s military has been a customer of Federal, CCI and Speer for years and this donation is meant to meet the call from President Zelenskyy for more ammunition for the armed forces of that nation as it faces an existential crisis.
