Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that his country would not be the first to supply fighter jets to Ukraine because Poland does not have enough of them. He believes that, first of all, potential deliveries should be made by those NATO countries that have more fighters.
“If such a decision is made, then we will not be the first to transfer fighters. But we will respond positively to this, provided that those who have more of these fighters, who own the most modern ones, will be able to transfer them to Ukraine. Only in this sequence do I imagine this topic,” said Mr. Morawiecki. He stressed that Poland is not ready to supply fighters in a different order, because his country’s own security is in the first place.
President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky during his visit to London yesterday, February 8, focused on the transfer of Western fighter jets to Kyiv. Despite the lack of consensus on this issue among Ukraine’s partners, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak promised to start training Ukrainian pilots in the spring and instructed the defense minister to study the possibility of supplying aviation to Kyiv. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz previously ruled out sending fighter jets to Kyiv. French President Emmanuel Macron, answering a question about the possibility of delivering aircraft, said that “in principle, nothing is ruled out.”
