A Scottsdale, Arizona-based ammunition company is offering to donate one million bullets to the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Ammunitionwhich produces high-performance ammunition and components, said it would support Ukraine in its struggle for independence and freedom, following Russia’s unprovoked invasion.

In a statement released on the company’s websitehe stated, “Ammo will officially offer to manufacture ammunition to donate to the Ukrainian Armed Forces as they fight for their country’s continued independence.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky told a briefing the day after the invasion that his citizens were defending their land and the future of their children. He also called on “all friends of Ukraine” to “come” and help defend the country.

However, Zelensky has since urged Ukrainians to “go on the offensive” in his latest video speech.

Ammo said in the statement, “Ammo strongly supports Ukraine’s sovereignty and independence, as we stand for freedom and democracy everywhere.”

He added: “While we fervently hope for a speedy and peaceful resolution of the crisis and that diplomacy will prevail, we condemn Russian aggression and its threat to the territorial integrity and freedom of Ukraine.”

Ammo did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment, which was made outside of normal working hours.

On Monday, the EU said it would send arms to Ukraine while imposing other sanctions such as closing its airspace to Russian planes. Meanwhile, Vladimir Putin has put Russia’s nuclear deterrent forces on high alert for what he described as “illegitimate Western sanctions”.

Thousands of Ukrainians have now fled to other countries, while some have fled their hometowns but vow to stay in Ukraine.

Efforts by neighboring countries to provide support and relief continue. Insider’s Zahra Tayeb reported that a Romanian restaurant near the border with Ukraine is serving up to 100 free meals to refugees every day.
