German Foreign Minister Annalena Berbock said that Olaf Scholz's government will study the further supply of air defense and weapons to Ukraine amid the transfer of Patriot air defense systems from the United States.
She announced this during her speech in Berlin, writes RND.
After the US committed to supplying Patriot air defense systems to Ukraine, the German government will also see if it can provide even more support to the armed forces in defense against Russian air attacks.
"With the Patriot delivery, we're also going to look again at what else we can deliver because we know these air defense systems save lives," Burbock said.
Patriot air defense system from Germany for Ukraine
Recently, the Minister of Defense of Poland, Mariusz Blaszczak, announced that Germany refused to hand over Patriot systems to Ukraine.
These installations will be deployed in Poland.
In turn, Germany explained that it could not transfer Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems to Ukraine due to the insufficient number of them at its disposal.
However, the representative of the defense policy of the leading Free Democratic Party of Germany, Markus Faber, suggested to Chancellor Olaf Scholz that at least the "obsolete" modification of the Patriot - PAC-2 be transferred to Ukraine.
