Ukraine-News: Poland wants to accept German air defense after all

Poland wants the ones offered by Germany to defend its airspace Patriot anti-aircraft systems now accept. Work on it, the Patriots stationed on Polish territory and subordinate them to the Polish command system, Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak wrote on Twitter.

However, Defense Minister Christine Lambrecht (SPD) had already insisted that the German air defense systems are part of the integrated NATO air defense system. There was initially no talk of placing the weapon systems under a Polish command.

Two weeks ago, Lambrecht proposed moving the Patriots to Poland. Blaszczak initially accepted the offer. A day later, however, he surprisingly suggested to station German anti-aircraft defenses on Ukrainian territory instead of in Poland. This had caused resentment in Berlin.
