<p class=The idea presented by Mitsotakis and Tusk finds response, however key issues must be resolved for its implementation

The need to create a single of missile defense in the European Union, as it is a common finding that threats in the modern field are visible every day and have intensified since the outbreak of the war in Ukraine. The related idea of ​​forming a dome that will protect the European territorieswe remind you that the Greek Prime Minister, Kyriakos Mitsotakis, and his Polish counterpart, Donald Tusk, have submitted together, and it has received positive comments from the rest of the EU leaders.

However, in order to reach the creation of the European shield, answers to 5 very important questions should be found. In particular:

Riddle one: Which areas will it cover initially? As one can understand, it will have to be clarified exactly which areas the system will initially cover (possibly the Baltic countries due to the Russian attack on Ukraine), as well as how the dome will be expanded afterwards. Greece aspires to be one of the first to be covered, as in any case our territory constitutes the most south-eastern border of the European Union together with Cyprus.

Riddle two: Who pays? The amount that will be required is huge and the appropriate resources will have to be found to implement the project. Obviously the money will have to be drawn from a common European fund. It is enough to consider that Germany alone needs about 17 billion euros to shield its ethers.

Riddle three: With what anti-aircraft systems will the sky be protected? Various anti-aircraft systems are currently in circulation and European staffs will have to settle on the most ideal one(s). It goes without saying that they should be compatible with NATO ones, such as the American Patriot missiles.

Riddle four: Where will the control center be located? It must be clarified in which country and in particular in which city the operations center that will coordinate all anti-aircraft systems will be set up. It is most likely that something like this will be set up in a central European country for security reasons.

Riddle five: What will happen to the existing Russian air defense systems? A number of European countries, including Greece, have Russian-made anti-aircraft systems that are no longer supported due to the European Union embargo on the Russian Federation following its invasion of Ukraine. Athens has been pressured from time to time to withdraw e.g. the array of Russian S-300 air defense systems, however it has not yet done so, as it is a reliable weapon against any enemy attack.
