The issue will also be discussed during the visit of the Minister of Defense Lloyd Austin to Slovakia and Bulgaria, the BBC reported, citing a high-ranking source from the United States. According to SPIEGEL, quoted by Deutsche Welle, the US Department of Defense is in talks with Slovakia and Bulgaria on the supply of S-300 systems to Ukraine.
