Bloomberg: none of the leaders of the EU has yet decided to transfer fighter jets to Ukraine


At the EU summit in Brussels, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky asked EU leaders to provide Ukraine with fighter jets. Bloomberg citing an official representative of the EU, he writes that so far no one has received consent to the transfer of combat aircraft to Ukraine.

“European leaders have made it clear to Volodymyr Zelensky that they are ready to send more military aid to Ukraine, but so far no one has committed to providing fighter jets,” the agency’s source said.

At the EU summit, the head of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, called on the member countries of the union to supply Ukraine with military aircraft, as well as longer-range missiles. Many countries refuse. For example, Poland does not want to transfer fighters first. Belgium says it needs the planes itself. Germany does not want to become a party to the conflict. The United States does not want to send its fighters to Ukraine either. Poland, Lithuania and the Netherlands spoke out for the supply of military aviation to Kyiv. France admitted that it could do it, but under conditions.
