Japan in talks with US to provide artillery shells for Ukraine – WSJ

Japan is in talks to provide artillery shells to the US to help bolster stocks for Ukraine’s counteroffensive against Russia, the Wall Street Journal reports.

A Pentagon spokesman said it is up to each country to decide what it could provide.
