Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba thanked U.S. State Secretary Antony Blinken for military assistance provided by his country and asked to supply more air defense systems to Ukraine. He specifically asked for Patriot, U.S. most advanced and expensive surface-to-air missile systems.

“NASAMS have proved their efficiency already. I am also convinced that the time for Patriots has come,” said Kuleba, who was talking to Blinken during Russia’s mass air attack on Ukraine on the morning of Nov. 17.
