“After further rocket attacks on Russia, I asked Germany that the Patriot batteries offered to Poland be transferred to Ukraine and placed on the western border. This will save Ukraine from further casualties and blackouts, as well as increase security on our eastern border, ”Blashak believes.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki supported the idea of the head of the military department.
“We would like this space to be protected as best as possible. So that Kyiv, Lvov, Ivano-Frankivsk or in the old way Stanislavov, Kovel, Rovno, Lutsk – all these cities were protected. From there, waves of refugees are fleeing to Poland, and we are afraid of another such wave,” Morawiecki said.
The chairman of the ruling Law and Justice party, Yaroslav Kaczynski, also said that Germany should offer Patriot systems to Ukraine. So, in his opinion, it will be better for both Kyiv and Warsaw.
On Monday, November 21, German Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht promised Poland to supply Patriot air defense systems. It has previously offered Eurofighter fighter jets to Warsaw. Blaszczak said on Twitter that he reacted positively to the proposal. The ministers confirmed the agreement both on the transfer of air defense systems and on the protection of Polish airspace by German fighters.
Berlin has returned to talks about arms deliveries after two people died due to a missile crash in the Polish village of Przewoduv near the border with Ukraine. On this day, Russia fired about 100 cruise missiles into Ukraine. According to the Ukrainian Air Force, these were Kh-101 and Kh-555 missiles. Experts on the wreckage of a shell that fell in Poland found that it was a missile from the S-300 air defense system. Morawiecki called the incident a “tragic set of circumstances” and placed the blame on Russia.
“The death of two Poles made us realize how close the war is… Bombs are falling close to the Polish borders. The main reason (strike. – TMT) is well known – this is the war and the massive bombing of Ukraine. Russia bears full responsibility for this tragedy,” Morawiecki said.
