Poland to order six more Patriot missile batteries, says minister

Poland intends to buy six additional Patriot missile batteries, the country's defense minister said on Tuesday, as the NATO-member strengthens its military after Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Warsaw has vowed to raise its defense spending to 3% of gross domestic product (GDP) and more than double the size of its army to deter any possible attack.

"I signed a Letter of Request concerning six Patriot batteries with omnidirectional radars, launchers and a supply of missiles," Mariusz Blaszczak wrote on Twitter.

Poland already has two Patriot batteries.
