It is already about the possibility of providing aircraft for patrolling the airspace of Ukraine.
The British authorities could approve the transfer to Ukraine fighters after the withdrawal of Russian troops from the occupied territories.
It is reported The Telegraph with reference to sources. The publication does not specify from which positions the Russians should leave.
One senior RAF source said the issue was not a priority at the moment. The interlocutors of the publication said that the transfer of the planes could happen “when Russia is expelled from Ukraine, and the Ukrainians will need to conduct an air control mission to protect their airspace.”
At the same time, another senior defense source is concerned that the Air Force and Navy (Navy and Navy) are not making a significant contribution to support the armed forces. It is noted that “Ukrainians need the participation of all types of Armed Forces”
However, interlocutors in the Navy and the Navy explained that their weapons are more difficult to use and require more time to prepare. In addition, the British Navy is training Ukrainians to operate two Sandown-class minesweepers from the summer of 2022.
Fighters for Ukraine
As Politico writes, Ukraine, following the supply of battle tanks, demands the supply of western fightersand can get them, counting on the support of the Baltic countries in this matter.
Yuriy Hnat, the spokesman of the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reportedthat it is already known what type of aircraft Ukraine will receive, and what are the terms of personnel training.
Later it became known that the administration of US President Joe Biden will “thoroughly discuss” with allies the possibility of supplying Ukraine F-16 fighters.
