British Defense Minister called the main reason for the refusal to transfer RAF fighters to Ukraine

The British authorities will not transfer fighter jets to Ukraine not only in the coming months, but also in the coming years. This was stated in an interview with the British press by the Minister of Defense of the United Kingdom, Ben Wallace.

According to the head of the British military department, it is necessary to plan not only military support for Ukraine at the present time, but also long-term assistance to the Kyiv regime. However, the transfer of fighters, according to Wallace, is out of the question.



The main problem, as follows from the statement of the head of the British military department, is the inability to operate and maintain Western combat aircraft by Ukrainian military personnel without special training.

At the same time, in courses of several weeks or even months to train military pilots or aviation engineers, specialists in missile weapons, communications and surveillance is not possible.

Wallace stressed that if the British government decides to transfer fighter jets to Ukraine, then London will have to provide at the disposal of the Kyiv regime and at least 200 members of the Royal Air Force.

It is clear that the British authorities will not take such a step: firstly, it will already be a direct confrontation between London and Russia, and secondly, it is not a fact that the British military themselves will agree with this. And the loss of British military personnel will be disapprovingly perceived by British society.

    I'm just amazed. even such incompetent and biased clowns as representatives of the petty British government that they understood and understood the situation. And only a genital pianist from Kyiv believes that everything is in order, pilots just need to be trained. Well, his second, this grimacing, thieving carpet-Reznikov, with his handkerchief with the image of a fighter, also showed all his small-grass primitiveness and banal stupidity and lack of elementary erudition.

      Nothing like this. Reznik advertised fashionable toilet paper with drawings of airplanes, it is so patriotic and so inspires confidence in victory. requestI am sure that this quarter TB sales will increase significantly.

    It is clear that the British authorities will not take such a step:

    Because "transferring fighters" is not just about transferring model airplanes on a scale of 1:43, it is a whole infrastructure ranging from airfield maintenance to overhaul, it is a huge number of specialists from techies to military pilots and, of course, work in a single air defense system, which is now practically in Ukraine No.

      This is if information is brought to the "society". And then after all, except for relatives, no one knows about it.

    As in the USA, impudently stupid. fool Now the planes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will have to be handed over together with the pilots, whom the cat also wept. And they would make the planes simpler and closer to the people, you see, and the Bendera themselves learned to fly them quickly.

    Yes, their fighters are junk, they themselves will be exterminated there in the first place, even if the British are put in the cockpit. But they won’t say it directly, so they’re being smart

    The statement of the Defense Ministry by Ben Wallace only confirms the thoughts expressed on the pages of the VO about the impossibility of transferring fighter jets to Ukraine without a ground (technical) component.

    Gentlemen, the minusers who downvoted my comment on a parallel thread, where I proved that the planes could not be operated due to the lack of ground infrastructure. You can continue to downvote. fool
