London, February 12, 2023, 2:40 pm — REGNUM Hopes that NATO countries will supply Kyiv with military aircraft are not lost in the Ukrainian leadership, Ukrainian Ambassador to London Vadim Prystaiko said on February 12 in an interview with the BBC.
“Let’s wait and see,” Prystaiko said. “We heard that about tanks, about long-range artillery.”
He suggested that for the time being, Kyiv was refused about the fighters, since not the whole alliance agreed. So far, the Ukrainian leadership is “looking for a compromise” with NATO partners, the diplomat assures.
