The Reuters agency, citing the German Ministry of Defence, reported that Germany had offered to extend the presence of the Patriots in Poland until the end of 2023. The German ministry noted that the presence of the Patriots in Poland after this period “is not foreseen”.

According to Reuters, the German ministry informed that further extension of the presence of Patriots in Poland is no longer envisaged, due to the planned inclusion of part of them in the Rapid Reaction Force FOR THIS in 2024, as well as servicing some launchers.

As Reuters reminded, there are currently about 300 German soldiers in Poland serving three Patriot batteries. They are stationed near Zamość.

In July, the head of the Ministry of National Defense Mariusz Blaszczak after meeting with the German Minister of Defense Boris Pistorius, he said that the Polish side was interested in the presence of German Patriot batteries in Poland “at least until the end of this year”. The proposal to deploy German equipment on the eastern border of Poland was put forward by the then Minister of Defense at the end of 2022 German Christine Lambrecht after a rocket flew into Poland in November, which fell in the border town of Przewodów, killing two people.
