The UK, USA, Denmark and Belgium Trains Ukrainians on “F16”

Ukraine may receive the first "F16s" from the Air coalition this fall

On the G7 platform, the United States joined the Air Coalition a commonwealth of states that are ready to train Ukrainian pilots on the F16: UK, Denmark and Belgium. A few months ago, there was no question of giving Ukrainians the opportunity to defend themselves with the Fighting Falcon since the minimum training period is 3 years.

The United States emphasised its decision not to provide fighter jets to Ukraine, and on May 21, the country's position changed: military instructors concluded that the Ukrainians would quickly master the F16, and the country joined the coalition.

"Ukraine can count on the unwavering support of the Netherlands and its international partners," Mark Rutte. 

"The UK will work together with the USA and the Netherlands, Belgium and Denmark to get Ukraine the combat air capability it needs. We stand united," Rishi Sunak. 

Today, May 23, exercises started in Poland, where representatives of the air coalition countries supervise Ukrainian pilots at the helm of the F16.

The military-political leadership reports that within a few months, by autumn or autumn, Ukraine may receive F16 to defend our borders and independence.
