Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak said on Nov. 23 he had asked Germany to send Patriot missile launchers offered to Poland to western Ukraine. "This will protect Ukraine from further deaths and blackouts and will increase security at our eastern border," Blaszczak wrote on Twitter.
The Patriot system offers protection against aircraft, cruise missiles, larger drones, and short-range ballistic missiles but it can't protect against low-flying or small drones which fly closer to the ground.
