About 70 Ukrainian servicemen have traveled to Germany to undergo a one-and-a-half-month training course on Patriot air defense systems. These systems are expected to arrive in Ukraine at the end of June.

The West predicts that they may arrive in Ukraine simultaneously with the delivery of F-16 fighter jets. This was reported by The New York Times.

According to Col. Jan-Henrik Suchordt, the branch head of surface-based air and missile defenses at Germany’s Air Force headquarters, the process of training the Ukrainian military on the systems is accelerating compared to the six- to nine-month course that the German Air Force usually takes. After the training, it usually takes about two days for German troops to deliver the missile launchers, radars, and other parts to a logistics center in Poland and hand them over to the Ukrainian military for transportation across the border.

According to preliminary data, more Patriot systems will arrive in Ukraine no earlier than the end of June. It may coincide with the delivery of another major weapon that Ukraine has long requested, namely F-16 fighter jets. However, this is a small number of combat aircraft.

It is also known that a new batch of interceptor missiles for Patriot arrived in Poland from Spain the day before. According to a senior Spanish official, they will soon be deployed to the Ukrainian front.

As a reminder, the United States continues to encourage countries to provide some of Patriot systems to Ukraine to strengthen its air defense capabilities. U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin appealed to European allies with this request.

Earlier, it was reported that the Israeli Air Force plans to get rid of its outdated Patriot systems in the coming months. These batteries will be replaced with "more advanced systems."

As reported, Ukraine may produce American Patriot systems and missiles for them. Relevant negotiations between the Ukrainian side and partners are actively underway.
