“Then it will be necessary to install something instead of the Patriots, it will be necessary to develop new systems. This is a long and complex process. Everything is not so simple,” Putin said.
The head of state stressed that the resources of Western countries and NATO countries “are not on the brink of exhaustion.” However, according to him, it is not so easy to switch to new weapons systems, including NATO ones.
Putin also said that Moscow is counting everything that is supplied to Ukraine, how many weapons are left in the warehouses, what the Ukrainian side can produce and in what time frame.
