May 21, 2023

Italy can join the training of Ukrainian pilots to fly modern fighter jets, but will not be able to provide Kiev with F-16s. This was stated by Italian Prime Minister Georgia Meloni.


At a press conference at the G7 summit, she said that Italy has no F-16s, and because of this it will not be able to take part in giving them to Kiev.

Meloni explained that the question is about the possible training of Ukrainian pilots, but the decision has not been made yet because the Italian side is assessing it together with its allies.
