Putin "100%" Sure Russia Can "Weed Out" US-Made Patriot Missiles

Putin said, "It is said that the Patriot systems may be sent to Ukraine. Let them do it; we will weed out the Patriots too."
Russian President Vladimir Putin said he is "100%" sure Moscow will destroy the Patriot air defence systems if the United States gives them to Ukraine, Russian news agency TASS reported citing Rossiya-1 television. He said that Ukraine does not have these systems so far.

"Of course, we'll take them out, 100 per cent!," TASS quoted Putin as saying in an interview.

Earlier on Thursday, Putin had said that "the patriot is a fairly outdated system." He further said that it is "antidote" to these systems will be found. According to the Kremlin website, Russian President Vladimir Putin on December 22 said that Russia will "weed out" the patriots.

According to the Kremlin website, Putin said, "It is said that the Patriot systems may be sent to Ukraine. Let them do it; we will weed out the Patriots too. And they will have to send something to replace them with or create new systems. It is a long and complicated process. It is not all that simple."

"We take this into account and count everything that is being sent there, how many systems there are in the depots, how many more they can manufacture and how fast, and if they can train the necessary personnel," he added.

His remarks come after the US Department of Defence announced $1.85 billion in additional security assistance for Ukraine.
