Polish Defense Minister Mariusz Blaszczak says Warsaw will accept an offer from Germany and propose deploying additional Patriot missile launchers near its border with Ukraine. “I accepted with satisfaction the proposal of the German Minister of Defense regarding the deployment of additional Patriot missile launchers in our country. During today’s telephone conversation with the German side, I will propose that the system be stationed at the border with Ukraine,” Blaszczak said in a tweet on November 21. Germany’s offer came after a stray missile crashed in Poland last week.
