Washington will deliver one battery of Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems to Ukraine. The Biden administration is currently finalising the plan to send air defense systems to Kyiv, sources said.
The plan must first be approved by US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin and President Joe Biden. The Ukrainian military will have to undergo training for the use of the US air defense systems at an army base in Germany.
The possible supplies of American Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems to Ukraine will put the world on the brink of World War Three, Vladimir Dzhabarov, first deputy head of the International Committee of the Federation Council. Washington is putting the world on the brink of the Third World War, but if the Americans think they can intimidate Russia, then they think it wrong, the senator concluded.
Patriot is one of the key elements of the integrated air and missile defence of the US Army. The range of Patriot complexes varies from 30 to 160 kilometers. There are versions that were specifically designed to intercept ballistic missiles. If Patriot is integrated with other Western-made air defense systems that Kyiv already has at its disposal, such as NASAMS and IRIS-T, local centers of Ukrainian air defence systems will be combined into joint information space with enhanced capabilities for timely identification and distribution of air targets between various complexes. This will reduce the effectiveness of massive Russian missile strikes.
