Possibility of delivering anti-aircraft missile systems from Germany to Ukraine

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky discussed strengthening Ukraine’s air defense with visiting German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock on Tuesday, the presidential press service reported.

At their meeting in Kiev, Zelensky and Baerbock discussed Germany’s initiative to find additional air defense systems, including Patriot missile systems, and send them to Ukraine.

They also talked about the possibility of delivering anti-aircraft missile systems from Germany to Ukraine soon.

Zelensky informed Baerbock in detail about the situation on the frontlines of the Russia-Ukraine conflict and thanked Germany for its military support and financial assistance.

Baerbock arrived in Ukraine earlier in the day for her seventh visit since the start of the full-scale conflict.

The “global initiative” for enhanced air defense in Ukraine, which was launched by Germany, has raised some 1 billion euros (about 1.09 billion U.S. dollars) for Ukraine’s air defense forces, according to Baerbock. ■
