One of them will become the main aircraft for the Armed Forces.
Minister of Defense Oleksiy Reznikov stated that the West will provide Ukraine with several types of modern fighter jets. One of them will be the main aircraft for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense stated this in an interview with a German publication Bild.
“I am sure that we will have two or three types of fighters. There will be one main aircraft, and it will depend on which one is better for Ukraine. For our airfields, for our engineers, for maintenance,” the Minister of Defense said.
Reznikov also commented on Germany’s refusal to provide aircraft. The minister recalled that once upon a time Berlin did not want to hand over tanks.
“Now there are “Leopards” in my country, I personally tested “Leopard” from Germany,” Reznikov answered.
It will be recalled that Yuriy Ignat, the spokesman of the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Yuriy Ignat emphasizes that Ukraine desperately needs F-16 fighters. The aircraft is versatile and multi-purpose, and therefore can be part of air defense. In addition, the fighter can deliver rocket-bomb strikes at a long distance.
