Third time in a week U.S. Air Force transport planes land in Ukraine amid escalation in Donbas
In the last week, several heavy transport aircraft of the U.S. Air Force arrived in Ukraine. The first landed in Lviv on March 29. This aircraft flew from an airbase in Spain, which is used for the delivery of military cargoes to the Middle East and Africa.
On April 4, another heavy military transport aircraft of the U.S. Air Force, C-17A Globemaster, with an unknown cargo landed in Lviv, Ukraine.
Ukrainian blogger Oleg Sharp writes on his Telegram channel that three heavy transport aircraft of the U.S. Air Force arrived in Ukraine in the last two days. One of them flew from the United States, two from American bases in Europe.
“What was on board is more important than all the previous shipments of Javelins. That’s how the job is done, without unnecessary noise and dust. God bless America and Ukraine,” the blogger writes.
