If there is an open invasion of Russia into the territory of Ukraine, the United States will provide it with air defense systems and anti-sniper technologies, and may also deploy Patriot anti-aircraft missile systems.

“We, of course, will consider any request of this kind. But the main thing is that the Pentagon is Ukraine’s main partner, and as we negotiate, we are looking for what additional assistance is needed in addition to what we already provide, including equipment, which in the current situation would help Ukraine. This process is being actively discussed”, said Antony Blinken.
