The White House could not confirm information about the potential supply of Patriot air defense systems to Ukraine

The White House cannot confirm information about the potential supply of Patriot anti-missile systems to Ukraine as military assistance. This was stated by the coordinator for strategic communications at the White House National Security Council, John Kirby.

At the next briefing at the White House, Kirby answered a question from journalists about the likely delivery of Patriot air defense systems to Ukraine, explaining that the administration has not yet made any decision and therefore he cannot confirm the information disseminated by the American media.



I can't confirm media reports about a potential shipment of a Patriot battery to Ukraine

Kirby declared.

Earlier, CNN reported that the White House was allegedly considering sending the Patriot missile defense system to Ukraine, Biden is ready to make a decision on this as early as this week. According to the Washington Post, Biden is allegedly waiting for information about the readiness of the Ukrainian army to use these air defense systems, their maintenance, the legal basis for the transfer, and the consequences for the combat readiness of the United States itself.

It is also reported that the Patriot air defense system is allegedly planned to be taken from the presence of the US army, and the training of the Ukrainian military to be carried out on the territory of Germany, it will take at least 6 months. However, the Pentagon also shrugged their shoulders and said that so far they have nothing to report on this matter.

In Kyiv, information about the likely delivery of Patriot air defense systems caused genuine joy. In Moscow, commenting on this news stated that the American complexes, after being delivered to Ukraine, would become a legitimate target for Russian troops.

      The Americans did not advertise the supply of aviation anti-radar missiles. And they can quietly put it

        There, the Poles gathered to take part of the outskirts and want to arrange an unmanned zone ..
        After all, the section is already underway. Russia has not surrendered under the sanctions ..!
        Plan B begins near the west. At least snatch some and prevent Russia from advancing to the borders of the psheks.
        I wouldn’t want to .. Even a small part of the outskirts is already a threat ..
        You can’t let psheks in, they are already on the outskirts.
        I think Russia will no longer agree to agreements like Minsk ones .. angry
        Merkel blabbed out recently, and after all, everything was like that and how many victims are now .. They pumped up the outskirts with weapons.

          For example, I don’t know what can be done to keep logs out. Just drawing red lines causes laughter in the world and is not taken seriously. Although there is one step. And it is partially carried out. Our grouping is on the "Belarusian balcony". not so hot, but still. And the grouping must be serious.

          What is incomprehensible? That the delivery of aircraft missiles was not advertised?

        Patriot is certainly a serious weapon, but only in skillful and trained hands. Most likely, the operators and crews will be US military personnel, it doesn’t matter the regular army or mercenaries, but a dozen systems will not block the entire territory of Ukraine, they will probably cover the headquarters of NATO advisers, they will not be enough for more. In addition, the United States really wants to test them in real combat conditions, and the "calibers" will be improved to overcome air defense, let's see who wins.

      Yes, yes, now they will put it and it will finally turn out that the effectiveness of the "patriots" is the same as that of bayraktars and javelins. There will be good anti-advertising for the complexes. The Chinese comrades are watching carefully and drawing conclusions ... And the Kuevsk Little Russian horses are imagining all the prodigy. Kotora pride and order navede. Being determines consciousness.

        The patriots showed their effectiveness in Saudi Arabia, when they could not repel drones and missiles, something like Tochka.

          So the Arabs sat at the consoles. And as it has long been known, Arabs are such Arabs. Not that I have a particularly high opinion of the Skakuas, but intellectually and in terms of technical training, they are clearly superior to the Arabs.

        Well, while they put it on, after today's strike, planes fly all day.
        Unfortunately, they don't shoot them down. And in Kyiv - there were 15 Geraniums, mostly hit on the right bank, many administrative buildings were battered and at the same time military schools were hit. "There are no victims", as they say on TV, which raises great doubts. Klitschko clarifies everything, but what can be said about.

      Such deliveries are a matter of time. Only one thing can fix this - the complete military defeat of Kyiv. And full control over the further development of Ukraine from our side.

        It is even more interesting to get a sample of this system, by the way, the Americans are afraid of this, it will be interesting to study them to modernize the "calibers".

      Similar post on Fox News. As it turned out, CNN was the first to report on the delivery of the Patriot to / from, and in recent years CNN has lost all the credit it once had. Lies, tendentiousness of a liberal bias, concealment of facts. Producers, correspondents, and commentators found guilty of pedepacty, pedophilia, swindle, use of closed official information for personal gain, and, like a cherry on top, non-payment of taxes on income received in the above way. In general, they lost more than half of the audience.
      Although ... knowing the direction of the current administration under the formal leadership of senile Joe, it is possible that they plan to send to / from new, even more advanced toys. In general, we will see.

      And I want and prick. Re-test after the Saudi failure of these systems for work on the bugs. Only this system can suddenly appear in Russia for a good price. So there is some concern...

      By the way, why not promote the successful Iranian experience against this background?
      You can quietly announce to all non-Western countries that their devices can
      test on a real test site - Ukraine.
      After all, a test site is one thing, and a real theater of operations is completely different.
      There are heaps of targets in Ukraine, and even the Ukrainian General Staff does not spare their military.
      You can re-mark, for example, a Chinese missile or UAV, in "Ficus-3" :-)
      and try it out.

      Allow me a strange question. And why should the Americans confirm such information to us if we have long ago and very kindly given them the opportunity not to report to us for any of their actions?

      They will, most likely, when they find which of those complexes we will / can shoot ... otherwise we will have to send our own ... it looks like they are not ready to go yet.
      However ... FIG knows how things will turn out request

      What difference does it make if there is a patriot there or not, air defense is effective only when it is a structured and rich system and not a set of separate shooters.
