As the war in Ukraine rages on, reports have surfaced that the United States offered to evacuate President Volodymyr Zelensky, but he immediately declined this offer. The Associated Press reported that Zelensky told a senior U.S. intelligence official, “The fight is here; I need ammunition, not a ride.” In a video response to the public, he continued, “We are here. We are not laying down any arms. We will defend our country.”
Answering the Call for Ammo
In a press release, Ammo Inc. announced a formal offer to provide what Zelensky asked for. After witnessing the invasion and hearing his plea for help, the company has offered to donate one million rounds of ammunition to the Armed Forces of Ukraine “in support of their fight for independence and freedom.”
Fred Wagenhals, CEO of Ammo Inc., had the following to say: “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.”
