The United States said that the Patriot air defense system will not help Ukraine, but will only become a target

The Military Watch portal reported that Washington framed Kyiv, as the Patriot air defense system in Ukraine would be an easy target without American personnel.

The United States said that the Patriot air defense system will not help Ukraine, but will only become a target
Washington’s decision to refuse to send American personnel to control the Patriot air defense system to Ukraine makes these systems vulnerable and useless for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, writes the American portal Military Watch.

The limited number of Patriot batteries that will be sent to Kyiv, with Ukraine’s other air defenses rapidly depleting, means they could be extremely vulnerable, and the absence of US or other NATO forces escorting the systems leaves them defenseless.

As the article argues, the lack of American personnel calls into question the practicality of a small Patriot deployment in the ongoing conflict.
