The first F-16s do not play a key role - Zelenskyy

May 18, 2024

This is reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to his interview with AFP.

"This year. The first ones (F-16s - ed.) will not play a key role. We need to treat everything fairly and with understanding. The first ones will not play a key role because their number will be insufficient. But these are the first steps," he said.

Ukraine critically needs modern aviation on the battlefield. A special coalition led by the Netherlands and Denmark was even created specifically for the transfer of F-16s.

Just recently, it became known that the F-16 fighters that Denmark is transferring to Ukraine will be at the disposal of the Ukrainian Air Force for several months.
