WASHINGTON (Sputnik) - The United States is in talks with Israeli and Ukrainian officials to send Patriot missile systems from Israel to Ukraine, the Financial Times reported on Thursday.
Senior US, Israeli, and Ukrainian officials have discussed the potential deal, although the arrangement has not been finalized, the report said, citing five people familiar with the talks.
The deal would likely involve transferring the Patriot systems from Israel to the US before sending them to Ukraine, the report said.
In April, Israel said that it planned to begin retiring its eight Patriot batteries and replacing them with newer systems.
