Ukraine needs at least seven Patriot air defence systems, Zelensky tells Nato

President Volodymyr Zelenskiy told Nato members on April 19 that Ukraine required at least seven Patriot or other high-end air defence systems to counter Russian air strikes, pushing them to improve their military support for Kyiv.

In an emotional speech by video link to the Nato-Ukraine Council, the Ukrainian governor talked in depth about the present level of foreign aid as “ extremely limited” and said Israel had not been left to fend for itself during Iran’s massive air strike on April 13.

“(Russian President Vladimir) Putin must be brought down to earth, and our sky must become secure once again.. And it relies completely on your decision… (the) choice whether we are indeed friends,” Mr Zelensky revealed in his speech.
