Polish Defense Minister Blaszczak said he was "disappointed" by the decision of Germany not to transfer Patriot air defense systems to Ukraine

Germany will not transfer Patriot anti-aircraft systems to Kyiv from the presence of its own army and place them on the territory of the western regions of Ukraine. This was stated by Polish Minister of Defense Mariusz Blashak.

The Germans refused to transfer Patriot air defense systems to Ukraine, which greatly disappointed Polish Minister of Defense Mariusz Blashak, who advocated the deployment of these systems in the western regions of Ukraine. Now the German complexes will be placed on Polish territory.

History with the German Patriot air defense systems began immediately after the fall of Ukrainian missiles in Poland, German Defense Minister Christen Lambrecht proposed to cover Poland with German anti-aircraft systems, placing them on Polish territory. The proposal was positively received in Warsaw, Berlin received consent, but the Minister of National Defense Mariusz Blaszczak suddenly offered to place these anti-aircraft systems not in Poland, but in Ukraine, such as where they would better protect the airspace.

In response, Berlin advised the Poles to transfer their own Patriot air defense systems to Ukraine, the delivery of which is expected in the near future. Here, Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki reared up, categorically rejecting this proposal. According to a Polish official, the Polish complexes will remain in Poland. Thus, Ukraine will not receive either Polish or German Patriot air defense systems.

After talking with the German defense minister, I was disappointed with the decision to withdraw support for Ukraine. Patriot deployment in western Ukraine would improve security for Poles and Ukrainians

- said Blaschak.

So far, nothing is known about the timing of the deployment of German anti-aircraft systems; in the near future, the necessary approvals will begin on the locations and connection of the air defense system to the Polish air defense system.

    And he is also very disappointed with the refusal of the Federal Republic of Germany to pay "reparations" to Poland for the Second World War. The Poles live by the principle of "arrogance, second happiness", now it is clear from whom the Ukrainians take an example.

    Well, this is understandable, because. for the sake of Ukraine (the future of their territories), today they are even ready to give up their last pants with the expectation that NATO will help anyway. Probably now they are intensively looking for options on how to do this, so as not to officially violate something in the legislation. Yes, and the Germans probably do not mind, but with the condition that they stay away from this.

    Is it possible that the Poles, purely by chance, though out of bewilderment, finally did at least one smart thing. The best defense against a neighbor's hole with a grenade is not the same grenade. It will be more reliable if you simply don’t give a grenade to a dupa. So the tractors will definitely be safer.

    In western Ukraine, then?
    This is apparently in order to cover the Poles' asses in the future during the planned occupation of the Zapadenschina?

      Well, of course! It is at least naive to believe that the Poles sincerely care about the Ukrainians, completely forgetting history, this is all for the time being. It seems to me that the interests of the cunning psheks go far beyond the borders of the western part of Ukraine, so they oppose us by sending even their own soldiers to help the Kyiv regime.

      And it’s interesting - are German air defense systems on the territory of Ukraine a legitimate target for our missiles?
      From their point of view.
      With our something, I think it's quite. But they, the Germans, for example, what do they think about it? Will a strike on a German "Patriot" stationed in Lvov not handed over to Ukraine, in the opinion of the Poles and Germans, be the reason for their stupid "fifth article"?

      And further.
      Are the Poles planning to install "Patriots" according to the Ukrainian habit - among houses or in school yards?

    And what is wrong nemchura? Buy your own and place them on the outskirts, say thank you that the Germans will stand at the psheks. As they were ungrateful pigs, so they remained. Ugh.

    Your home is Magadan.
    It has not grown together with the colonization of Madagascar.
    Magadan is the birthplace of the Poles.

    Maybe they can put this blaschaka at the control panel of the complex, and then ours will dunk on it.
    Let's look at the survival of this blaschaka.
    To convey, you must first teach how to use it, otherwise, if only for the exhibition and report, like "yes, they passed it ..."

    How much did the Turks master our S400? Patriot is no less complex complex. At the control posts, according to the Pole, then there should have been people who knew this complex thoroughly. in Poland, can such a Patriot?
