U.S. President Joe Biden has approved the deployment of a second Patriot missile system to Ukraine to strengthen its air defense.

The New York Times reports this with reference to unnamed senior officials from the presidential administration and the military.

According to these sources, Biden made the decision last week after a series of high-level meetings and internal debates on how to meet Ukraine’s urgent needs to strengthen air defense without jeopardizing U.S. combat readiness.

The new Patriot system will come from Poland, where it has been protecting rotating U.S. forces returning to the United States.

According to U.S. officials, the system could be deployed to the front lines in Ukraine in the next few days, depending on any maintenance or modifications it requires.
