AFU refutes claims of F-16 pilot training in Britain

Yuriy Ignat, adviser to the Ukrainian Air Force command, denied the information about the beginning of the training of Ukrainian pilots for the operation of American-made F-16 aircraft in the UK.

Ignat told reporters on Monday that “there is no talk of training pilots yet. The first groups of aviation specialists went there to study the possibility of organizing the training of Ukrainian pilots later.”

Earlier on Monday, Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmygal announced that the first groups of Ukrainian pilots had begun training on the use of the F-16 in the UK.

Šmigal later explained that the first teams had been formed but had not yet begun training.
