The United States of America has allocated $100 million to train Ukrainian pilots in the use of US Air Force fighter jets. This step may mean preparations for the transfer of military aviation to our country.

This information was shared by the speaker of the command of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Yuriy Ignat during a recent briefing.

“A bill was adopted by the US government to allocate $100 million for the training of military pilots in 2023. If the US government allocates funds for the training of Ukrainian pilots on American aircraft, then this indicates the seriousness of the US intentions and that we will receive aviation equipment “, – said Ignat.

Recall that the plans of the United States to allocate $ 100 million for the training of Ukrainian pilots became known in mid-July. Then the House of Representatives passed a bill on defense policy in the amount of $840 billion. One of the approved amendments was the budget for training pilots of the Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

At the same time, there were no official statements about the transfer of US military aviation to Ukraine. Earlier, Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the head of the OPU, hinted in a conversation about long-range ATACMS missiles that the issue of sending aircraft was resolved.

  1. It seems to me in the future there will be a major partnership for the production of military equipment between the US and Ukraine. Ukraine has the technical ability, many raw materials and let’s be honest, cheap labor. I would like to see Ukraine completely replace Russian weapons sales.

      • Maybe Russia will try to become a NATO member as they fear Ukraine could take Moscow in a week if they want :p

        The Russians will be left without an army in some months. Very smart if there is a China eying your resources in Siberia to dispose of your entire army.
