Some countries are ready to transfer combat aircraft to Kyiv if the States give the green light.

US President Joe Biden said that his country will not give F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine.

Ukrainian officials have stepped up their calls to Western partners over aviation to fight against occupying forces,  Sky news reports .

It is noted that when asked by journalists about the transfer of F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine, Biden limited himself to a short “no” and did not give reasons.

Transfer to Ukraine F-16

Recall, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced his readiness to transfer American F-16 fighters to the Armed Forces of Ukraine if the States give the green light.

According to the speaker of the Command of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Yuriy Ignat, Ukraine needs to replace its entire fleet of Soviet aircraft with F-16s for protection. In addition, it is necessary to create at least five air brigades from them.

As UNIAN previously reported, French President Emmanuel Macron admitted the possibility of supplying fighter jets to Ukraine as part of military assistance from Paris. When asked by journalists about this, he said that “in principle, nothing is prohibited.”

    • Yeah well, I’m thinking China would be more than happy to see them supplied… delighted even. No doubt it’d delay the 141 that are to be delivered to Taiwan by Lockheed Martin by the end of ’23 and the 70 more by ’26.

      • They don’t need to supplying new ones. There are plenty of retired airframes.

        I really would like to know what the reason is.

  1. Even if west isn’t going to be supplying something, why does it have to efn tell everybody.😝🙄🤬 Biden needs to get his head out of his arse.

  2. Biden is a spineless coward. He always was. Biden was granted five deferments as a student before he received a medical exemption for asthma during the Vietnam War. He supposedly had asthma as a teenager. Fact is, he played football and was a lifeguard before he received the “get out of jail card”. I can’t imagine swimming while having asthma, and especially when you’re supposed to pull someone out of the water to boot. And playing football is also something no one usually does who has asthma. This makes him not only a coward, but a filthy liar too.
    So, it’s no wonder that he’s acting like a marshmallow in the face of this illegal war and massive mafia war crimes. Maybe he or his son even profit from the war in some way, and hopes that the war will last as long as possible.
