Slovenia has rejected claims that it purchased 155mm artillery shells from India and then forwarded them to Ukraine. In a statement released last month, the country called the reports “fake news” and said they were an attempt to undermine Slovenia’s reputation on the world stage.

Slovenian officials vehemently denied the allegations, stating that the country had not made any such purchases from Munitions India Limited (MIL), an Indian defense contractor. They further emphasized that Slovenia had not been involved in the transfer or resale of munitions to any other country.

Unconfirmed media reports had previously suggested that MIL had sold 155mm shells to several European nations, including Slovenia, which then allegedly sent them on to Ukraine. Slovenia suggests these reports are motivated by a desire to damage the country’s international standing, particularly in light of its recent appointment as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council.
