أوكرانيا تجدد النداء للحصول على طائرات F-16

May 25, 2023 - قال الرئيس فولوديمير زيلينسكي إن تسليم طائرات مقاتلة من طراز F-16 إلى أوكرانيا سيكون إشارة مؤكدة من العالم على أن الغزو الروسي سينتهي بهزيمة.

Ukraine’s quest for the U.S.-built jet received a big boost over the weekend when U.S. President Joe Biden gave his backing for Kyiv’s pilots to be trained to fly them.

Biden’s comments at a summit with G7 leaders in Japan came days after Britain and the Netherlands said they were building an “international coalition” to help Ukraine procure F-16s as it seeks to improve its defences against Russian air attacks.

The F-16s would be a significant upgrade to the largely Soviet-era aircraft currently in Ukraine’s fleet, CNN said.
