American Patriot air defense systems will be delivered to Ukraine sooner than planned.

CNN writes about this with reference to representatives of the US Ministry of Defense.

As noted, in the coming days, 65 Ukrainian military personnel will complete training on the use of anti-aircraft missile systems.

After that, they will be sent to Europe for further training.

It helped our defenders that they had basic knowledge of managing air defense systems.

"Our assessment is that Ukrainian soldiers are impressive and absolutely fast learners," said Brigadier General Shane Morgan.

In general, the Ukrainian military was allocated 10 weeks for training, but they managed in eight.

It is pointed out that the training schedule was "aggressive" - ​​our defenders trained every day from seven in the morning to six in the evening.

We will remind that Poland and Slovakia will hand over MiG-29 aircraft to Ukraine, the fourth-generation multi-purpose Soviet fighter jets, but American F-16s are needed to defeat the aggressor Russia.
