Military expert Oleg Zhdanov named the approximate dates when the American anti-aircraft missile systems (SAM) Patriot will take up combat duty in Ukraine.

He made the corresponding statement, commenting on the news that the military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine had completed training on the American Patriot air defense systems, which they took place at the Fort Scilly base in Oklahoma.

“Our servicemen have already left the United States for Europe, where they will join the rest of our military, who are being trained at the European training center, and will already accept the Patriot system and arrive in Ukraine with it,” he said. “I think this is a question of the nearest weeks.”

According to the expert, the fighters will take up combat duty on the territory of Ukraine already at the new complexes in the first half of April.
