Details: On Friday, Ollongren confirmed that the Netherlands had found components that could be used to form the Patriot air defense system. She refused to say which country would help with the supply of the system.


The head of the Dutch Defense Ministry also refused to disclose the timing of the Patriot system's delivery to Ukraine in order not to disclose this information to Russia.

As a reminder, the Netherlands announced in late May that it would assemble and deliver the Patriot system to Ukraine in the short term with the support of other countries.

Ukraine said it needed seven Patriot air defense systems in the short term to protect its skies from Russian attacks.
