Norwegian Defense Minister: Our Support for F-16 Fighter Training of Ukrainians

Norwegian Defense Minister Bjorn Arild Gram said in an interview with the press that his country supports the training of Ukrainian pilots in the use of American F-16 fighters.

“Norway is exploring various ways to promote F-16 fighter training for Ukrainian personnel,” Graham said in an interview with NRK, adding that the Norwegian government supports such an initiative.

Norwegian F-16s ended their mission in the Norwegian armed forces in 2022 and have been replaced by F-35 fighters, according to the channel.

The channel indicated that Ukrainian pilots are already being trained to use F-16 fighters in Poland and some other countries, and Denmark announced this week that it wants to play a major role in training Ukrainian pilots.

Earlier, Russia sent a memorandum to NATO countries on the supply of weapons to Ukraine, and the Russian Foreign Ministry indicated that any supply of weapons to Ukraine would become a legitimate target for Russia. And that the NATO countries are “playing with fire” by supplying weapons to Ukraine.
