The Netherlands needs to assess the possible consequences of the transfer of fighters to the Ukrainian side, which sent a corresponding request to Amsterdam, together with Washington. This was stated by the head of the country’s defense department Kaisa Ollongren.
As Parlamentskaya Gazeta wrote, a number of Kyiv’s partners, including the United States, Great Britain and EU countries, announced new deliveries of weapons and ammunition as part of the country’s support in the confrontation with Russia.
“Ukraine really asked us to help with the supply of fighter jets. But this request is not easy to fulfill. We need to discuss the availability of the F-16 with the Americans and other allies, ”RIA Novosti quotes the minister.
Ollongren clarified that such actions are not taken “overnight”, and the Netherlands must remain honest in this matter.
Earlier, Parlamentskaya Gazeta reported that Belgian Prime Minister Alexander de Croo announced Brussels’ refusal to supply Ukraine with its own fighter jets, since the country itself needs them. The politician explained that this aircraft is also actively used in the Baltic countries to protect the airspace of NATO countries.
