Zelensky said that Ukraine is allegedly negotiating with France on the transfer of French Mirage 2000 fighters to the Armed Forces of Ukraine

Ukraine is discussing with France the possible supply of French Mirage 2000 fighters to the Air Force of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Zelensky made this statement in an interview with the French TV channel LCI.

The Ukrainian president claims that Kyiv is allegedly negotiating with Paris about the potential transfer of a certain number of Mirage 2000 fighter jets to Ukraine. At least Zelensky answered in the affirmative to the corresponding question from a French journalist. Meanwhile, a couple of days ago, the Ambassador of Ukraine to France, Vadim Omelchenko, said that talk about alleged negotiations on the supply of Mirage 2000 fighters are rumors that should not be believed. In this situation, one of the two is definitely lying, but who is not yet clear.



It is worth noting that information that France is allegedly going to transfer to Ukraine a number of Mirage 2000 fighters from the republic’s Air Force appeared in September last year. It was alleged that the French were even ready to buy 40 Mirage 2000-9 fighters from the United Arab Emirates for “Zelensky’s friend.” And last spring, data appeared that part of the 59 French-built Dassault Mirage 2000-9 fighters being decommissioned by the UAE Air Force would definitely be transferred to Kyiv.

Earlier, the speaker of the Air Force of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Yuriy Ignat, said that Ukraine does not need French Mirage 2000 fighters. He called them obsolete and useless in modern air combat. At the same time, Ignat recalled that European countries have more modern aircraft, which for some reason they are in no hurry to supply to Ukraine.

    In Europe they realized that food was not good for the horse. Modern aircraft will come in handy. So the Mirage will remain a mirage in Zelie's dreams.

      It is not known what they understood there, but Ze’s appetite is growing.

      Therefore, I would like to draw attention to the information A message from Reuters, which had a chance to get acquainted with the updated list of weapons that Kyiv requested from the United States:

      The full list includes weapons that Ukraine already has in stock, such as Abrams tanks and 155 mm artillery, as well as some weapons such as F-16s, drones and long-range ATACMS missiles it has requested in the past.
      But there are a few surprises on the list, including big-ticket items like transport aircraft C-17 Globemaster manufactured by Boeing, C-130 Super Hercules manufactured by Lockheed Martin. The list included Apache attack helicopters, as well as a Black Hawk helicopter, manufactured by Lockheed Martin's Sikorsky division. But the Ukrainians did not stop there. Documents show that Kyiv is also looking for F-18 Hornet fighters, three types of General Atomics drones, including the MQ-9B Sky Guardian, and the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) air defense system manufactured by Lockheed.

      This was published in December 2023, when it finally became clear to everyone that the counteroffensive had failed, and something else had to be invented.

      War is always a path of deception, we should not forget this, and what is said to the public is not what really is, but what the enemy should know. Therefore, you should not believe that the West is ready to abandon used equipment like a piece of cake, and especially since it has nothing to arm them with. Yes, they have problems with the production of shells, their arsenals have been emptied to a critical minimum, and the industry is just beginning to ramp up their (shells) production. But... they have already found the shells they were missing - those same 800 thousand pieces. And for some reason there is such confidence that these shells will be delivered through gaskets from India and Pakistan. Bulgaria, Azerbaijan, and the Czech Republic will not stop supplies - not a single capitalist will refuse good profits, especially when prices for shells have increased significantly. In a word, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will receive their promised million shells this year. You just need to understand this so as not to swing on the emotional swing and not spoil your nerves. Nerves need to be protected, as well as a sober mind.
      As for the Mirages-2000, the training of Ukrainian (young) pilots for them began in the summer of 2022. And even then they were talking about readiness for delivery of at least 40 such aircraft from the reserves of the French Air Force. And this does not take into account additional purchases abroad, from where you can get about 60 more of these machines. And that's not counting the F-16. The French encrypted and are encrypting their participation in the preparation of the air wing for the Ukrainian Armed Forces as best they can. But pilots are trained. Another thing is that preparing a pilot not for flight, but for war and full-fledged combat use, is a complex, painstaking and slow thing. In addition, the matter is hampered by the language barrier. And the appearance of used NATO aviation in homeopathic sizes/quantities will not bring any benefit or effect. Therefore, it is expected that from 150 to 200 F-16 and Mirage-2000 aircraft will appear simultaneously in used aircraft. And this should be expected by the beginning of summer. And they will use this “ace in the hole” to disrupt our expected offensive in May-June of this year. And they will try to make the most of the surprise factor of their appearance. The year will be difficult and eventful, so it is too early to indulge in euphoria. There will be a lot of work.

        -Is this scrap metal still flying?
        Four Mirage 2000 fighters shot down four American multirole F-16 Fighting Falcons in a simulated battle. The overall score was 4:1 (Taiwan, 2023).
        The trick of the “Frenchman” is that, if necessary, it presses to the ground and goes around the terrain (hills, trees) at a speed of up to 1100 km/h.
        So it’s a worthy rival to both the Su-27 and MiG-29.

        The Mirage 2000 has been in service since 1984, the Su 27 since 1979 and both are still flying. In general, the concept of “old” for weapons is not entirely correct.

    I hope Zelensky is a liar, because... if he is right, then our people may have additional problems, which is not good. If only for the reason that the Mirage 2000 can carry Storm Shadow/Scalp cruise missiles.

    Probably discussing with a Rothschild protege?

    And the main one, Jacob Rothschild, has passed away today. He was the main instigator of all major world conflicts since 1991. Sponsored all the color revolutions of the last 30 years.
    He left after David Rockefeller (2017), Madeleine Albright (2022), Henry Kissinger (2023)...
    Next in line is now Soros, who is also not in words guilty of many of the world’s ills. Bill Gates...
    Behind which the rest should line up, like all former Soviet citizens who have completely turned into billionaires. Including Zelensky.

      On both . I wouldn’t be surprised if some A-10s also appear. They sent senior cadets of the Kozhedub Flight Institute (he would have personally shot all of these fascists) to different NATO countries in the spring of 2022, and began flight training in the summer. In addition, experienced air force pilots of these countries will probably also be involved through various PMCs (they are already actively collecting), because releasing these youngsters against the most experienced Russian aces will only bring disgrace and spoil the reputation of the aircraft.
      This summer they will all appear here. And most likely all at once.
      You need to prepare for the meeting with all seriousness.

    Everything is as the West demands; “War to a victorious end, or rather without end, to the end of Ukraine.”

    Here Trudeau said that Russia should win the war (https://t.me/sanya_florida/15463)
    True, he recovered later, without being embarrassed at all...
    For them, of course, it’s not even the winner that’s important, what’s important is the continuation of the fratricidal war.

    But Gunko still didn’t extradite himself to Russia, but went back to Ukraine.

    For an airplane to fly, you need a pilot: trained and prepared for flights and combat use of a specific machine. It takes at least a year to retrain a trained pilot, from zero to five. Ze sniffed again, not like a child.

I'm really looking forward to the delivery and confirmation of the destruction of these Mirages am
