The Patriot systems are to be located in the area of ​​the city of Zamosc in southeastern Poland, about 60 kilometers from the Ukrainian border, and the process of moving them will begin from the German city of Gnojen. 

German military personnel have been stationed in Poland since January 16, tasked with ensuring that the systems are received by Poland's allies.

German "Patriot" batteries will soon arrive in Poland

After a missile landed on Polish territory in mid-November, then German Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht and her Polish counterpart Mariusz Blaszczak agreed to move Germany's Patriot air defense systems to Poland.

Blaszczak caused serious displeasure in Berlin, as a little later he proposed that they be stationed in the Ukraine. 

In the end, it became clear that the three systems will arrive in Poland, notes BTA.
