US to send additional Patriot missiles to Ukraine in new aid package

Washington— USA will provide Ukraine Patriot missiles additional for their air defense systems as part of a huge additional $6 billion aid packageUS Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin announced on Friday.

The missiles will be used to resupply the Patriot air defense systems provided above and are part of a package that also includes more munitions for the National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile System (NASAMS) and additional equipment to integrate rocket launchers, missiles and radars into existing Ukrainian weaponry, much of which dates back to the Soviet era.

The Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky talked about the Patriots’ need Friday morning at the Contact Group for the Defense of Ukraine, a coalition of nearly 50 countries meeting virtually in a meeting led by the Pentagon. His speech marked the second anniversary of the group that, according to Austin, has “moved heaven and earth” since April 2022 to supply millions of rounds of ammunition, rocket systems, armored vehicles and even jet aircraft to help Ukraine repel the Russian invasion.
