Kuleba: F-16s will be, it's a matter of time

May 2, 2023

Ukraine's Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba is convinced that sooner or later Western allies will decide to provide Ukraine with F-16 fighter jets, just as they did with all other types of weapons.

He said this in an interview with 1+1 TV channel, according to Yevropeiska Pravda.

Kuleba noted that the decision on Western aircraft is a matter of time, and expressed regret that Ukraine will pay an additional price in human lives for the hesitation of its allies.


"There will be F-16s, it is a matter of time. I think it will depend on the US decision and the results of the counteroffensive," Kuleba said.

According to him, this is one of the three priorities in terms of military support from the Allies, along with artillery shells and armored vehicles.

"If we had F-16s right now, our counteroffensive would be much faster, and we would be able to save many more lives of our soldiers and civilians who suffer from missile strikes," the Foreign Minister added.
