About the fact that to fully cover the sky over Ukrainian cities from attacks by a terrorist state, our air defense needs only a little more than 20 modern air defense/missile defense systems of the Patriot type, writes NBN, citing the explanation of the speaker of the Air Force of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Ilya Yevlash, published by Ukrinform.

According to Yevlash, to ensure effective counteraction to missile and drone attacks of the Russian Federation, Ukraine will have enough 25 Patriot subtype complexes. However, there is now a significant shortage of other means that could cover the sky, for example, man-portable anti-aircraft missile systems, actively used by mobile fire groups.

Also, the whole system should be quickly developed Air defense, making it deeply echeloned, and including short-range (Crotal, Avenger, Cheetah), medium-range (IRIS-T, NASAMS) and long-range (Patriot and SAMP/T) systems, supported fighter aircraft and Skynex installations—the so-called drone fighters.

Earlier, we wrote about the fact that Budanov was revealing the reasons for the intensification of massive attacks by the Russian Federation on Ukraine.
