Ukraine will receive another Patriot anti-aircraft missile system. It will be provided by the Netherlands together with another country.


This was stated by Dutch Defense Minister Keesa Ollongren, RBC-Ukraine reports citing the NL Times.

She clarified that the Netherlands and another country have managed to assemble parts that can then form a complete system. The minister has been working on this for some time.

Ollongren said that air defense is crucial for Ukraine, which has been able to withstand many Russian attacks in this way. The secretary also added that the United States is also working to further assist Ukraine's military efforts.

Last week, at the Patriot meeting in Brussels, another list of assistance to Ukraine in its air defense needs was drawn up. The minister said that "all the pieces of the puzzle" were on the table.

The official did not say who the other country was that helped the Netherlands with the Patriot for Ukraine.
