“We’re now very focused on-air defense systems, and it is not just us, this includes many other countries,” Blinken told CNN. “We are working to make sure that the Ukrainians get those systems as quickly as possible but also as effectively as possible, making sure that they are trained on them, making sure they can maintain them, and all of that must come together, and it is,” said Blinken in Bucharest at the NATO foreign ministers meeting. While Blinken would not elaborate on whether the Pentagon would provide the Patriot missile defense system to Ukraine, he said that the US had been working on ensuring that “at any given time, Ukrainians have the most effective systems possible to deal with the threat they are facing.”
