Slovakia Deploys “Patriots” to Strengthen NATO’s Eastern Flank

Jaroslav Nad, Slovak Minister of Defense, said on 20 March that Patriot air defense systems had begun arriving in Slovakia from NATO allies and would be deployed in the coming days.

Nad said that the deployment of the NATO Patriot system is intended to strengthen the air defense, as the air defense system currently in Slovakia is the former Soviet-made S-300. The Patriots system will be temporarily deployed at the armed forces base of Sliac so that its air defense covers as much Slovak territory as possible. He also said that considering the service life, combat effectiveness and dependence on Russian made weapons, the country is looking for an air defense system that can replace the S-300.

It is reported that the Patriot air system, deployed at Sliak airbase, will be operated by German and Dutch troops.
