The British authorities called the supply of fighter jets to Ukraine inappropriate

The British authorities consider it inappropriate to supply the Ukrainian army with fighters.

According to the Evening Standard, a spokesman for Prime Minister Rishi Sunaka stressed that the Typhoon and F-35 fighters in service with the British Army are very difficult to operate. It will take months to learn how to operate these types of machines. Based on this, the British authorities believe that the transfer of such aircraft to the Ukrainian Air Force is inappropriate.



The representative of the head of the British government also added that London will continue to provide Ukraine with military support, as well as help accelerate the support of Kyiv by other countries. The British authorities, however, plan to continue discussions with their allies on the transfer of less advanced fighters to Ukraine.

The representative of the British Prime Minister also recalled that his country plans to transfer to Kyiv in the near future Tanks Challenger, which will soon be sent to Ukraine.

Earlier it was reported that some representatives of the US authorities are in favor of transferring American F-16 fighters to Ukraine, but President Joe Biden answered negatively to a question from journalists about the possibility of supplying such weapons to Kyiv.

Deputy head of the Polish Ministry of Defense Wojciech Skurkiewicz also said that Warsaw is not currently considering the transfer of F-16 fighters to Ukraine.

          About tanks, too, at first they went into denial .. And now they have already announced a whole menagerie. With Abrash (a Jew, though not a Merkava) at the head .. This is Zele for 300 Jews Respect from the Westlaughing

      Russia is silent and preparing, and this frightens the Anglos very much .. They said that they would supply tanks, well, we are waiting .. Aviation? Well, let them fly ..

      Perhaps, but Russia is also not sitting idly by. There is a war of survival going on. About 100 lard have already been invested in the outskirts in a year, and things are still there ..
      The 9th wave of mobilization is underway, the Hungarians and even the Balts have already agreed on the extradition of refugee conscripts ..etc.
      Today, infa slipped that Blinkin requested negotiations from Russia through Egypt (Lavrov hinted) Looks like things are bad on the territory of the US colony ..
      Russia is increasing pressure on the ukroreich ..etc ..
      And most importantly, our economy is stable and sanctions have even become useful to us .. We are moving!

    I think it will be the following, they will supply the most massive western F-16 fighter (to simplify logistics and pilot training) in various modifications, there may also be a number of the most modern block-70/72 to try them out. They will work in units from dozens of sections of highways, after several sorties (if they don’t get shot down) they will be driven to Romania or Poland for maintenance. Also, if they put the F-16, then they may well put the E-2C Hawkeye 2000 AWACS aircraft.

      I completely agree with you, these are the realities of war. The West has invested so much dough in 404, which is fraught with consequences for the economy with management from the Regional Committee. And the loot loves the account and accounting, return and income.

    Or maybe they are afraid to show the full potential of foreign aircraft?

    And what are the British wrong about? Of course, it is not advisable to supply Western aircraft to Ukraine. Firstly, there will be problems with pilot training, and secondly, these aircraft will have to take off from NATO airfields. Before Ukraine, no one has set, and does not set, the task of defeating Russia in a direct clash - this is simply not possible, but to inflict damage to the maximum - yes. Here, the effect will be more from MLRS and missile weapons.

    The title is incorrect.
    It should be like this: "The United States ordered London to declare that the supply of fighter jets to Ukraine is inappropriate."

    The British authorities called the supply of fighter jets to Ukraine inappropriate
    . They spoke out, the reasons were quite objectively outlined.
    So far, what will happen next, no one can say for sure.

    The British authorities consider it inappropriate to supply the Ukrainian army with fighters.

    This means that deliveries will begin soon, they said the same thing about tanks.
