President Volodymyr Zelensky has said the delivery of F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine would be a sure signal from the world that Russia’s invasion would end in defeat.

F-16 Fighter Jet Training Planned For Ukraine’s Pilots

Ukraine’s quest for the U.S.-built jet received a big boost over the weekend when U.S. President Joe Biden backed for Kyiv’s pilots to be trained to fly them.

Biden’s comments at a summit with G7 leaders in Japan came days after Britain and the Netherlands said they were building an “international coalition” to help Ukraine procure F-16s as it seeks to improve its defenses against Russian air attacks.

The F-16s would be a significant upgrade to the largely Soviet-era aircraft currently in Ukraine’s fleet, CNN said.
