Czechs could donate L-159 jets to Ukraine

May 11, 2023 - The Czech Republic could give Ukraine some of its L-159 fighter jets to support its planned counter-offensive, Czech President Petr Pavel was quoted as saying.

Prague has been among Kyiv’s staunchest allies from the outbreak of Russia’s aggression last February, providing material from ammunition to tanks worth billions of dollars.

The L-159 is a Czech-made, light subsonic combat aircraft designed for air support of ground forces, reconnaissance and partly also for air combat missions, Reuters said.
