Such a statement was made in Poland after the massive Russian missile attack on Ukraine.
Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak offered Germany to hand over batteries of the universal Patriot air defense system promised to his country to Ukraine.
As the Polish minister noted on Twitter, the transfer of the complexes will help protect Ukraine from further casualties and blackouts as a result of Russian shelling.
“After the latest Russian missile attacks, I appealed to Germany to transfer the Patriot batteries offered by Poland to Ukraine and deploy them on the western border. This will protect Ukraine from further casualties and blackouts and increase security on our eastern border,” Blaszczak emphasized.
