Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Kuleba announced the start of preparations for the transfer of Patriot air defense systems to Kyiv.

"We ended last year with a revolutionary decision to provide Ukraine with American Patriot systems, as agreed by the leaders of Ukraine and the U.S., Volodymyr Zelensky and Joseph Biden. We greatly appreciate this step by the United States. We expect the Patriot to be deployed as soon as possible. Preparations for the transfer of these systems have already begun,” Kuleba said in a video shared by Ukraine’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Facebook.

In a recent interview, Kuleba said Patriots will be deployed in Ukraine within six months.
