Moscow. Russian President Vladimir Putin said after the US decision to send the Patriot air defense system to Kyiv amid the ongoing war in Ukraine that the Patriot air defense system was too old and they could replace. The US Department of Defense at the Pentagon this week announced additional security assistance of US$850 million for Ukraine. This brings total military aid to Kyiv to $21.9 billion since the start of the Joe Biden administration. This new American aid also included the Patriot air defense system. Which is capable of shooting down cruise missiles, short-range ballistic missiles and aircraft from a great height.
Vladimir Putin told reporters that “it is said that the Patriot system can be sent to Ukraine”. Leave it to them, we’ll also destroy the Patriot and they’ll have to send something else to replace it or make a new system. Putin also said that the delivery of the Patriot air defense system would further aggravate the war. Putin said “we keep that in mind and count everything sent there.” How many systems do the depots have, how many and how quickly can they be built, and how many necessary personnel can they train. All of this is accounted for.

Regarding the war in Ukraine, Putin said that Russia aims to end the conflict soon.
