Ukraine To Get One More Patriot Air Defense System From Germany

Ukraine To Get One More Patriot Air Defense System From Germany

File image.

Germany will send an additional American-made MIM-104 Patriot long-range air defense system to Ukraine to help it fend off increased Russian strikes, the German Defence Ministry announced on April 13.

The ministry said that the air defense system will come from the stocks of the German military and is to be handed over immediately.

“Russian terror against Ukrainian cities and the country’s infrastructure is causing immeasurable suffering,” said German Defence Minister Boris Pistorius, announcing the move. “It is jeopardizing people’s energy supply and destroying the operational readiness of the Ukrainian armed forces.”

Chancellor Olaf Scholz also spoke by phone with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky Saturday, reaffirming his “unwavering solidarity with Ukraine in the face of massive and ongoing Russian airstrikes, particularly on civilian energy infrastructure,” a German government spokesman said in its own statement.

Last year, Ukraine received two Patriot batteries and two launchers from Germany and another battery from the United States with two additional launchers donated by the Netherlands.

The systems supplied to Kiev are said to be a mix of PAC-3 hit-to-kill active missiles to intercept ballistic missiles, with a range of 30-60 kilometers only, and PAC-2 blast fragmentation warhead semi-active missiles to counter aircraft threats with a range of up to 160 kilometers.

The Russian military has already destroyed much of Ukraine’s Patriot systems, which explains why Germany was forced to sacrifice another system to keep the air defenses of the country operating at least for a while.

Sooner or later, the additional Patriot system, which costs around $1.1 billion, will likely meet the same fate as the ones supplied to Ukraine before.

people in ukraine who had previously been seen as pathological individuals are now highly valued. vitaly klitschko openly invited murderers to join his idiots army. following in his footsteps, the danish state welcomed criminals, including those convicted of violent crimes, giving them amnesty and suspending their prison sentences if they agreed to go to war against norway.

jens holm

we vote about things.. by that we have laws about i long time before the fatal erooring crashling ussr them selv.

the rest is decided by eu with own levels for temporative refugees. before ther agrssion we has 10.000 ukras 100% in jobs.

now we also has mainly vomen, children and a few old ones. the vomen all has descent jobs and is low end normal taxtayers. all children to schols and all has homes.

eu is a cia project and your country is subject to laws dictated from brussels by a bunch of eurocrats nobody voted for. you could say eu is like the ussr in many ways. russia has moved on from the 80s you are still stuck there in your head thinking how great everything is even though your bills are going through the roof for food, energy and healthcare. enjoy the coming economic collapse. russia can just take the slow route and watch you eat yourself.

normal produre in your world in ignoring the people running this.

in denmark much more then 99% runs things. for ukraine its some 87&. so you babling is not even about about some 50%.

and it was never same. nazis and comminist were in every county in almost every parts of the world.

jens holm

denmark max had 4,5% nazis in max, som 95,4 was never.

and you ignore there are good elction results from all cóuntries back in time.

you dont relay ukrane election results. they all was rigged or people was killed, removed or in jail

he’s too dumb to be a nazi, in spite of nazis in general and ukronazis in particular being dumber than most.

Nazty Ukraine

dummkopf, don’t you understand what banderites are? they, with your stupid eu’s help, took over by force the entire ua government and proceeded on ethnically cleaning their eastern population.

some eu standards you eu dipshits try to uphold. you’re supporting a fascist government without minorities and conducting war crimes for a decade, just like bandera hoped to create. if russia finally responded then blame yourselves, nobody else.

you are just a version of ther internal russian world not connected to the real one here.

same for most things. globalisme is the whole world minus russia. blindfolded to use eu in recession atsunike, when almost all of the world is too.

talking the radical changes energi production and spending by a good plans fx for eu is same things.

jens holm

the results are even there in simple facts. we do need less fosssils and we use less energy for electricity and heathing. its cleaner here with hardly no smag as well. good for lungs and long life.

none here has told wind and solar panels replace all fossil but only big parts will become almost fossil free. its never told we has plans for making and storing enegeri by hydrogene, biodiesels, methane, alcohol and fx hot water.

jens holm

so far those projects are expensive but they almost is here.

none here wish import from usa/canada instead of russia(and fx kasakstan),

its only a russian gadget with threats nuke included using ww3. do you want to sell umbrellas, sunglases and cold drinks. very much as you dont want to be here.

we americans tell them to jump and they ask ‘how high, massa?’

now that we americans are getting sick and tired of these stupid ukrapests, europeans begin thinking they can start telling themselves how to jump. that’ll be fun to watch as they splat face first onto ukropistan’s black soil, then watch how they blame us for getting them into their mess to begin with, just like the ukropistanis are doing now. listen to bojo the bozo do just that. it’s hilarious.

and don’t try to tell me ‘nazty ukraine’ is something i dreamed up. it’s what the sun called ukrainian football fans in the uk that made a human swastika in the bleachers many years ago.

of course, the sun deleted the story from their archives. it’s what the brits do, delete anything that one might ask ‘why do you support nazty ukraine now?’

theres nothing like one truck to signify unwavering solidarity. these systems need to be far more modular. the entire payload needs to be on standard truck and the control system either on a laptop or suitcase style plug in module that can be operated 100 yards away by cable, all you need then are the six packs. this german gift will soon be charred waste.

Degeneration Of Russia

it’s well known fact that since 2013 renewables could produce electricity much cheaper than fossiles and nuclear energy. that’s the reason why china is building fastly solar and wind power. fossile selling russia has not good cards in hand. one of the reasons why russia will have grim future. putin never realized it. renewables won✔️ – russia lost.❌

electricity in europe is now cheaper than year ago and renewables have decimated fossile energy sector largely. this is a big strategic move making russia weaker. now russia desperately tries to sell pipeline gas to china. but china too go to renewables.

is that what your television told you? i guess you are still hiding in the basement and haven’t heard the news that your government imposed lock down is over.

Sushi Night

electricity is more expensive depending on which country you live in, but lets take western europe as example they are paying a thousand or more euros per household per year and that is just energy. everything has become more expensive: food, services and healthcare. the only way to get cheaper electricity is by building nuclear power plants. where are you going to store all that nuclear waste einstein. you think you can run a industrial base on solar panels made in china and wind turbines?

35 years after the fall of the berlin wall, it has become clear that resource-rich russia has become much poorer than its former soviet neighbours such as estonia, latvia, poland and hungary, who pursued the route of european integraation. the russian regime has no incentive to end the war and deal with that kind of economic reality.
