May 9, 2023

The United Kingdom has become the first country to train Ukrainian pilots according to NATO standards.

Ambassador of Ukraine to the United Kingdom Vadym Prystaiko said this during a telethon, according to Yevropeiska Pravda.


"Pilots will be able to be quickly retrained for specific equipment in the future. If politicians make a final decision on the F-16, these pilots who have taken the British course will quickly master it. And this is the role of Britain, which is taking a step forward," he said.

Prystayko added that discussions on the transfer of F-16s to Ukraine are ongoing, but it is Britain that does not have these fighters.
