Netherlands can provide Patriot to Ukraine

Dutch House of Representatives supports granting Patriot air defense system to Ukraine for protection against Russian missiles, writes NOS.

Most representatives of the Dutch Parliament supported the transfer of the Patriot air defense system. MP from the People's Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) Peter Valstar, during the discussion of the decision, recalled the tragedy in the Dnieper, where a Russian rocket hit a high-rise building and claimed the lives of 45 people.

"You see that Ukraine has always should be protected from missiles from Russia. Patriot can play an important role here. So do your part,” the politician said.

At the same time, the parliamentarians discussed whether the transfer of air defense systems would weaken the air defense of the Netherlands. The country currently has four Patriot systems, each consisting of a radar, a fire control center and several launchers.
