Greece and Spain to Decline Sending Air Defense Systems to Ukraine

Sharing is Caring!

The international community is scrambling to provide Ukraine with air defense batteries, but two key countries, Spain and Greece, have declined to donate their systems.

Despite Ukraine’s urgent need for at least seven advanced air defense batteries to protect its cities and critical infrastructure from Russian attacks, Madrid and Athens are prioritizing their own security concerns.

According to Spanish outlet El País, Madrid has refused to redeploy one of its three Patriot systems to Ukraine, instead committing to send missiles that can be used in existing versions of the surface-to-air system.

While the extra firepower will be welcome, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has clarified that his country is still far short of having the necessary air defense capabilities to counter Russian aggression.
