Netherlands to initiate increase number of Patriot systems for Ukraine – President's Office

The Dutch government will work on increasing the number of Patriot air defense systems for Ukraine.

Ukraine's President's Office makes a relevant statement on Telegram,

The Government of the Netherlands will work towards increasing the number of Patriot systems for Ukraine. We are working on a relevant coalition, the statement says. 

However, the Netherlands don't express their confidence regarding the supply of F16s to Ukraine. The Dutch PM Rutte says the state is "seriously considering" the transfer.

Citing its sources, Bloomberg reported that the Netherlands might send F16s warplanes to Ukraine after the completion of the pilots' training.

So far, the state has sent 260 mln euros in a joint EU initiative to purchase ammunition for Ukraine's artillery and rifles.

The state has also allocated 1,6 bln euro for military assistance.
