“F-16” for Ukraine From Poland

The state is ready to transfer fighter jets to Ukraine under the condition of ensuring the security of Poland itself

On February 1, Andrzej Duda and Egils Levits held a press conference in Riga. The presidents shared plans for the upcoming meeting with Joe Biden and also answered questions about the supply of F-16 fighter jets to the Air Forces of Ukraine.

Andrzej Duda said that Poland is ready to provide fighter jets to Ukraine in mutual agreement with other partners, provided that Poland itself is provided for.

"We are ready for negotiations with allies regarding support for Ukraine. We help Ukraine, but we also care about the security of Poland," Andrzej Duda.

Currently, the Polish armed forces have 50 F-16 units, and the contracts are for delivering F-35s and Korean FA-50s. In total, Ukraine received from Poland 240 T-72 units, more than a hundred infantry fighting vehicles, Piorun portable anti-aircraft missile systems, thousands of rifles and even Krab. Mateusz Morawiecki recently confirmed that the state aims to help Ukraine with Leopard 2, T-72, and PT-91 Twardy tanks.

We remind you that in addition to military aid, Poland accepted more than 950.000 refugees from Ukraine.
