Ukraine decided to purchase IRIS-T SLM air defense systems directly from the manufacturer. And now he is asking for money. The German edition Welt am Sonntag writes about this.
The newspaper also reports that German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has already supported such a delivery. Kyiv is ready to “purchase” eleven systems from the German concern.
The cost of the kits is estimated at 1.5 billion euros. If the contract is signed, only one set will be sent to Ukraine this year. The Germans will be able to complete the order in full only in 5 years.
