Ukraine has already received missiles for the Patriot air defense system, which were sent by Spain and other Western allies, according to Spanish Defense Minister Margarita Robles.

Robles announced that Ukraine had received air defense missiles during her visit to the Sangenis barracks and the Orad y Gajías General Military Hospital in Zaragoza, where Ukrainian soldiers are trained.

“These missiles are for air defense, and it should be very clear that they are for Ukraine to protect itself from the attacks it is suffering from Russia,” she explained.

According to Robles, everyone should understand that Ukraine is a country that has been invaded by Putin, who is committing large-scale massacres and has no intention of imposing any limits.

Patriot for Ukraine

At the beginning of this spring, Russia intensified its massive shelling of Ukraine, leading to the depletion of air defense systems and a shortage of missiles for them.

However, during the last Ramstein meeting, several countries, including Spain, announced that they would transfer missiles for the air defense system to Ukraine.

In addition, the German government agreed to provide Ukraine with another Patriot air defense system to protect it from Russian attacks.
