“It remains to give the F-16”: the Poles about the defeat of the Ukrainian Patriot

Polish readers of the Gazeta.pl resource commented on media reports about the defeat of the Ukrainian Patriot anti-aircraft gun by the Russian Armed Forces' Kinzhal hypersonic complex.

The article cites a statement by the American television channel CNN that "the system is probably damaged, but not destroyed," citing an anonymous senior US official.

The original publication was presented in Poland under the headline CNN: Rosjanie uszkodzili system Patriot w trakcie ataku na Kijów. Trwa szacowanie strat. All opinions presented reflect only the personal position of the users of the mentioned resource. Comments are selective.

A strange sequence of events is taking shape in Ukraine. At first, the Bayraktars were supposed to be a kind of miracle against the Russians, but after the loss of 80 of them, these conversations subsided, then the HYMERS, but for two months he had not been able to hit a single strategic target. the Russians learned how to jam it effectively, now the Patriot disappeared about a month after delivery - it remains to give the F-16

- the reader with the nickname dirxml_iii is ironic.

Eh ... for one damaged [APU] they will receive two or three new ones, because the Americans will be happy to test their machinery in combat conditions to further improve it

Krzysiek Olejniczak believes.

Is this a bombing? When the Americans bombed Baghdad, dozens of rockets fell on the city overnight and all city targets were destroyed, and not just military ones. Our pro-American television showed that fireworks of explosions in Baghdad, and now Ukrainian television shows single destroyed houses. There are no independent journalists in Poland, only propaganda officials

– said trasat47.

In general, it would be better if the test of that weapon did not take place over Warsaw. We are so lucky for the first time in history

It was so beautiful, American, but the Russians took it and destroyed it. Poland will buy more Patriots for more money. The Russians will have something to destroy

scoffs user realistas.

They will buy it with the money of a Polish taxpayer and give it to Ukraine, because Zelensky will again shout and demand. And rockets will fly over Poland, so imperceptibly and reaching Bydgoszcz

      Well, you can say whatever you want. The same Ukraine admitted that the patriot was struck, but about the shooting down of daggers, we heard only unsubstantiated words of the ukrovermacht. On the contrary, our Defense Ministry stated that all intended targets were hit

    the NYT newspaper clearly answered Zelensky's fuss in Europe about the F-16, the offensive and other things -

    In a situation where only a few weeks remain until the end of spring, Kyiv finds itself in an extremely unenviable position. The moment for the offensive may be lost, which the Western Allies will not forgive. So necessary go forward, even without air cover and long-range ammunition

    You can say whatever you want, where the video is from independent journalists, but this will not happen, because. there is nothing to show there, daggers and Iskanders will grind everything.

    Another child prodigy in the form of f16 will have exactly the same fate as the patriot. There is still a little bit not Yugoslavia, Libya or Iraq, with C125.
