Advisor to the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense: the United States is far from deploying Patriot air defense systems in Ukraine

31

The United States is far from deploying the Patriot air defense system in Ukraine, because for this it has neither the appropriate status, nor sufficient funds, nor the necessary infrastructure. Moreover, it is not in line with Washington's goals and standards.


This was stated by the adviser to the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense Yuriy Butusov.

This Ukrainian journalist believes that although the United States provides Kiev with great assistance and support, they will not supply Patriot air defense systems to it.

We do not yet have such a status that some NATO countries would want to fight for us

- said Butusov.

He notes that American air defense systems are complex and costly. Their battery costs roughly a billion dollars. In addition, for its effective operation, radars and electronic reconnaissance systems will be required, that is, hundreds of millions of dollars more. And this money is simply not in the Ukrainian budget.

The adviser believes that Ukraine should rely on its own forces to ensure its defense capability.

We just need to learn from Western countries to defend their national interests. And to understand that the national interests of Ukraine, except for Ukraine, no one else will defend.

- notes the expert.

We will remind that earlier the commander of the Ukrainian Air Force announced possible deliveries of American F-35 fighters to the country by 2035. Also, the military department of Ukraine spoke about the need to purchase air defense systems from the United States.

      Naturally! But the fact is that the return line will arrive not only at the point of deployment, but also at the point of production.

        And Krasava is a guy. I staked out such a place for myself, 50 years ahead. You can perform every day - it is not planned to place in Ukraine ... and further on the list, YAO, Iron Kumpol ... etc .. Not work-sinecure

          Just after reading this: - "The United States is far from the deployment of Patriot air defense systems in Ukraine"you can see how degraded, flawed and feeble in spirit are the Banderlog pans on the outskirts ...

          It’s not even about getting a “Patriot” for yourself, but about “securing” ukrofaterlyand at the expense of forces from overseas ... At the expense of "good uncle sam".

      As to the moon ... Or to the stars!

      But they already had everything in Ukraine ... Even the S-300 remained. Good air defense, and the S-400 complexes would already be there. If not for stupidity and greed ...

      It may happen that soon he will move to the USA for permanent residence, where he will be able to see enough of both the Patriot and the F-35.

    So it is, with a moonshine hangover, and will not say so. A million times S.V. Lavrov is right with his phrase!

      and they will not allow Ukrainians to reach the complexes, only the American air defense crew will work with them, and deploying air defense systems without ground cover is stupid, because this way you can find out that because of the coup, American air defense systems were at the disposal of the Russians ..

    Their battery costs roughly a billion dollars.

    About 2 billion, judging by the Polish contract.
    And in fact - please, do not call one of the most disgusting instigators of Ukraine an "expert", for he is an expert only in creating hatred, inciting. Nothing more.
    This "expert" did not even bother to ask how many batteries are needed, taking into account the length of the border with Russia. Everything counts per battery. This is not even a drop in the ocean, but simply nothing.
    He does not even understand that the United States is supplying these complexes either to NATO members, or to countries where the United States has its own critical or military infrastructure.
    But for some reason, VO Butusova stubbornly refers to it as an "expert". This is the same Butusov, who, like no one else, is engaged in neo-Nazi ignition in his "Censor".

    How so? Those whose family originated from the Atlanteans (the latest research of Ukrainian "historians") is not worth a penny, is it really another zrada? So it is worth digging around and finding "confirmation" that it was the Ukrainians who discovered America and formed the United States, then they will definitely be accepted not only by NATO, but by 51 states.

    Yes .. Kiev is not an easy choice.
    After all, the amount is not small, and the purchase of "Petriot" is a real contribution to the country's air defense.
    And for the birthday of Kiev, no one will give such a gift ..

    Well, the infrastructure is there, and what kind of infrastructure. Just bring the first car to the deployment site, as the next two would have already been sold, or simply sold. laughing

    the Saudis bought the patriot, and the Houthis proved that the patriot is a very unreliable thing. laughing
