Zelensky says Ukraine never got the air defense system it asked for

Zelensky said that Ukraine never received the air defense systems it asked for

Even before the start of a full-scale Russian invasion, Ukrainian authorities told partner countries that the Ukrainian army needs modern missile defense systems. But she did not receive them even on the 109th day of the war, when Russian missiles kill Ukrainians every day. This was announced by President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky during an evening address.

– Today is the 109th day of a full-scale war, but far from the 109th day when we say a simple thing to our partners: Ukraine needs modern missile defense systems . Deliveries of such systems were possible this year, and last year, and even earlier. Have we received them? No. Are they needed? Yes. There have already been 2,606 affirmative answers to this question in the form of various Russian cruise missiles that hit Ukrainian cities. In our cities, in our villages for the time of February 24. This is a life that could have been saved, these are tragedies that could have been prevented if Ukraine had been listened to, the President said.

On June 11, Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk said that the latest German air defense system IRIS-T, capable of protecting an area the size of Kyiv, will arrive in Ukraine in October. Within 3-4 years, Ukraine will be able to put it around cities and the most important objects.
