    Germany offers Patriot air defense systems to Poland

    After the deadly explosion in eastern Poland, Germany proposes to transfer “Patriot” air defense systems to Poland.

    “We have offered #Poland support in ensuring the security of the airspace with our Eurofighter fighters and Patriot air defense systems,”

    said the head of the German Defense Ministry.

    As stated by Minister of National Defence Mariusz Błaszczak, Poland accepts the offer:

    According to Reuters, on Sunday, November 20, Defence Minister Christine Lambrecht reported that Germany has offered Warsaw the Patriot missile defence system to help it to secure its airspace after a stray missile crashed in Poland last week.

    “We have offered Poland support in securing airspace – with our Eurofighters and with Patriot air defence systems”.

    said Defence Minister Christine Lambrecht.
    "The German government had already said it would offer its neighbour further help in air policing with German Eurofighters after the incident, which initially raised fears that the war in Ukraine could spill across the border."
