Christine Lambrecht: further air defence support for Slovakia

In addition to the Patriot air defence missile systems already stationed in Slovakia, Germany’s Defence Minister Christine Lambrecht has promised further air defence support for this NATO country, which borders directly on Ukraine.

Specifically, this would involve the MANTIS short-range defence system, which is to be deployed in eastern Slovakia, Lambrecht and her Slovakian counterpart Jaroslav Nad announced.

Among other things, this will protect the repair centre set up a few kilometres from the Ukrainian border in the town of Michalovce. German weapons that have been worn out or damaged in the Ukraine war are repaired there.
