Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba, in an interview with Bild am Sonntag newspaper, said that Western countries are unlikely to deliver air fighters to his country in the near future.
“I do not expect the fighters to be given to us anytime soon, it is a very difficult task in terms of logistics and procedures. However, we point out that the training of Ukrainian pilots should start now. Once the decision is made, we will not spend a few days,” he said.
In the second half of February, Kuleba said that his country had not received any commitments from any country to supply fighter jets.
Earlier, the German government said it was not considering providing fighter jets to Ukraine.
White House spokeswoman Karen Jean-Pierre announced that her country is not planning to send F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine, although Ukrainian pilots have come to the United States for training.
Before that, US President Joe Biden rejected the transfer of F-16s to Ukraine and said in a television interview, “These transfers make no sense in the context of the current conflict.”
