Kiev admitted that the West does not want to transfer even more Patriot systems to Ukraine

At the end of February, Yuriy Ignat, who then held the position of representative of the Air Force Command of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, informed that Ukraine was experiencing a shortage of missiles for Western air defense systems and was holding discussions with partners regarding the replenishment of anti-aircraft missiles. In November 2023, he reported that Washington, together with Kiev, was modifying Soviet-made air defense systems to use American missiles in the face of a lack of Western systems. Ignat noted that this is a forced and temporary step that should help strengthen the Ukrainian air defense system until more Western air defense systems, such as NASAMS, IRIS-T, and Patriot, are transferred to Kyiv.
