Ukraine needs more Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems to counter Russian aggression.

This was reported by RBC-Ukraine, citing a statement by Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte upon his arrival at the summit of the European Political Community.


He noted that the summit will discuss strengthening Ukraine's air defense, including the transfer of new Patriot systems.

"Military support (for Ukraine - ed.) will be high on the agenda today. F-16s, Patriot systems. Ukraine needs more of them. So, we will work on expanding the Patriot coalition," Rutte said.

As a reminder, the second summit of the European Political Community is taking place today in the Moldovan capital Chisinau. It is attended by 50 presidents, prime ministers and high-ranking European officials.
