UK admits the possibility of transferring fighters to Ukraine
LONDON, UK — The British authorities are currently considering the possibility of supplying Ukraine with combat aircraft, including fighter jets. This was stated by the office of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Mr. Rishi Sunak.

- What London says about delivery of Eurofighter Typhoon to Kyiv
- Dysfunction of Russia’s long-range strike capability is profound – UK
We remind you that today the President of Ukraine Mr. Volodymyr Zelensky is on an official visit to London. The head of the Kyiv regime held meetings with the British Prime Minister Mr. Rishi Sunak, addressed the members of both houses of the British Parliament, and at the end of the visit, he was received by the King of Great Britain Charles III.
During a speech in the British Parliament, Zelensky asked the United Kingdom to transfer fighter jets to Ukraine. It was after this appeal that the British Prime Minister’s office began to talk about a possible transfer of fighters.
We recall that after Zelensky visited the United States and requested air defense systems in Congress, Western countries began supplying Ukraine with Western-made anti-aircraft missile systems. Evidently, Zelensky has already implemented a proven pattern of behavior in Britain regarding fighter jets.
But there was no doubt that sooner or later the West would turn to the issue of aircraft supplies. Recently, this topic has been discussed too actively in the Western press.
Earlier, the Dutch parliament announced the desire to transfer the retired Royal Air Force F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine. But without the permission of the US, such a decision cannot be taken.
The UK, in turn, can transfer a few old aircraft of its own production to Ukraine, and then the “extra” in the form of Poland and the Baltic countries will require Germany and other European countries to supply more aircraft to Ukraine.
