At a meeting of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group (Ramstein format), which took place on May 20, NATO partner countries supported Germany's initiative to provide Ukraine with air defense systems.

"The result of the online meeting of the Ukraine Defense Contact Group: numerous partners want to support Germany's initiative to strengthen Ukrainian air defense," the German Ministry of Defense reported on the social network.
