The diplomat said this in a comment to Polsat News.

"Negotiations have begun with Germany on this issue (Patriot broadcast - Ed.). We have raised these issues with the US because they have the Patriot technology. I am also using the NATO and OSCE ministerial meetings to talk to anyone who can help us make a positive decision regarding the delivery of Patriot to Ukraine," Kuleba said.

The head of the Foreign Ministry emphasized that Ukraine fully supports Poland's idea of ​​deploying Patriot in the west of the country.
