German Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced that Ukraine will receive new air defense equipment in the “coming weeks and months.” The politician promised to transfer, in particular, one Patriot air defense system, as well as missiles and ammunition.

The Chancellor made the announcement at the Conference on Ukraine’s Recovery in Berlin.

He noted that a strong and free European Ukraine will “defeat Russian imperialism” and announced the planned arms delivery.

«The most common need of the Ukrainian army now is ammunition, weapons, especially air defense systems. Therefore, in the coming weeks and months, we will supply Ukraine with the third Patriot air defense system, IRIS-T, Gepards, missiles, and ammunition», – Scholz said, as quoted by the EP.

He called on the states present at the conference to support the German initiative to increase the capacity of Ukraine’s air defense system “with everything they can.”

It is worth noting that Germany announced in mid-April that it would immediately provide Ukraine with another additional Patriot air defense system, as well as missiles for its existing air defense systems.
