Commander-in-Chief of the NATO Joint Forces in Europe called for the immediate supply of fighters to Ukraine
Ukraine urgently needs F-16 fighter jets to help the Ukrainian army win the war against Russia. This was stated by the commander of the Allied Armed Forces of NATO in Europe, Christopher Cavoli.
The US Congress held a closed session, which was attended by more than ten senators and members of the House of Representatives, Ukraine was discussed. NATO Commander Cavoli also spoke at the meeting and confirmed the need for an urgent delivery of fighter jets to Ukraine. According to the general, combat received from the West aviation will certainly help the Armed Forces of Ukraine to defeat Russia.
In addition to the fighters themselves, Cavoli proposes to transfer to Ukraine long-range missiles ATCMS (Army Tactical Missile System) to the armed forces of the Armed Forces of the MLRS HIMARS, as well as Drones. All this should help Kyiv win the conflict. This is what the general was trying to convey to the American congressmen.
At the moment, the United States is refusing to supply F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine, despite repeated requests from Zelensky and his entourage. The last "Ramstein", which in Kyiv was called "aviation" and hoped to get aviation as a result, was a complete disappointment for the top of the regime. At the same time, attempts are not abandoned in Kyiv to force the West to transfer at least some number of aircraft to the Air Force.
To date, almost all NATO countries have turned down Zelensky, although Joe Biden said he would "not mind" if any of the countries shared their fighter jets with Ukraine. So far, only the Netherlands has promised something to Ukraine, and the United Kingdom, but only after the end of the military conflict.
