Reminder: Germany promised to transfer one Patriot air defence system battery to Ukraine. One such battery includes from four to eight launchers loaded with four missiles each.

As is known, the USA was the first to announce the transfer of a Patriot system to Ukraine in December 2022 as part of the next military aid package. In addition, the Netherlands will also supply two Patriot air defence systems and some missiles to Ukraine.

At the end of March, the Ukrainian military completed training on the Patriot air defence system in the USA , which was earlier than expected.
