It's cheaper to buy Patriot than to restore the destroyed TPP

Apr 16, 2024

EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said that it is cheaper to buy American Patriot systems than to restore a power plant that was destroyed by Russia.


Answering whether France can do more for Ukraine than Germany, Borrell said that everyone can do more to fulfill European obligations, RBC-Ukraine reports, citing Le Monde.

“My role is not to point fingers at one country or another, but to develop a common position. The overall figure is important to me, but I understand perfectly well that this amount consists of very different concepts,” he said.

Borrell stressed that the problem is not time but quantity.

“In a year, it may be too late. Before we talk about the restoration of Ukraine, we must avoid its destruction. It is cheaper to buy Patriot systems than to restore the power plant that the Russians are targeting,” said the Head of EU Diplomacy.
