Sweden is trying to transfer to the Czech Republic the training of Ukrainian pilots to operate JAS-39 Gripen fighters

Sweden does not intend to train Ukrainian pilots to operate Gripen fighters; the Swedes want to involve the Czech Republic, which has a squadron of Swedish aircraft, in this matter. According to the ČTK news agency, Stockholm and Prague are conducting active negotiations on this issue.

Sweden does not refuse to train Ukrainian pilots to operate Gripen fighters, but prefers to conduct it not on its territory. At the moment, the Swedes are persuading the Czechs to take on this “honorable mission,” especially since they are already actively helping Ukraine. Like, it won’t hurt you, you still take part in the training program for the Ukrainian military.



The Czech Republic can accept representatives of the Air Force of the Ukrainian Armed Forces for training, the whole point is that the Czech Air Force leased 14 JAS-39 Gripen fighters from Sweden back in 2004 to replace the Soviet MiG-21s that had been withdrawn from service and are still actively using them, including for patrolling the airspace of neighboring Slovakia. So all the conditions for preparation are there.

It is not known at what stage the negotiations are, but with a high probability the Czech Republic will accept Sweden’s offer, negotiating some kind of compensation. The Czechs generally very actively support the Zelensky regime, supplying weapons, repairing them at their enterprises and conducting training for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Earlier, the speaker of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Yuriy Ignat, said that Kiev would like to receive Swedish JAS-39 Gripen fighters in the latest modification, but at the moment all efforts are being devoted to reducing the time frame for the transfer of American F-16 fighters. In general, Ukraine’s plans are really grandiose; Kyiv has already set its sights on the F-35, in the future, of course. All that remains is to defeat Russia and immediately “happiness will come.”

        For the weapons supplied to Ukraine, the Czech Republic receives compensation from NATO that exceeds the money spent in monetary terms.
        I wouldn’t be surprised if the Swedes give up Czech fighters. After all, they are on lease, the pilots are used to them.
        And Sweden seems to be on the sidelines.

      The West began to suspect something, but they did not dare refuse to send weapons at the request of the United States. In fact, preparations are underway to find the last one. So the Swedes decided to shift their responsibility if their planes start burning in Ukraine.

        I absolutely agree with you!
        Things in Europe smell like kerosene! It is important for Sweden to somehow stay away from a possible military fire in the “hut on the edge”!

      . This is understandable... they are driven by the purity of their own ecology and do not want to see such “biological waste” in their place...

      As they say, both laughter and sin are funny and sad. It’s funny because the Swedes diligently disown the “honorable mission”, trying to stay away from the training of Ukrainian pilots. It’s sad that European countries are bending over backwards to help the Bandera regime fight against Russia.

      Griffins, Falcons, Lightning.... But in fact, everyone is waiting for whether the Russians will attack or not, and how the heart will calm down as a result
