Warsaw: delivery of aircraft to Ukraine "F16" It will be a difficult decision

Polish President Andrzej Duda said that the delivery of F-16 fighters to Ukraine would be a “difficult decision” and that such steps require a “NATO” consensus, which has not yet been determined.

Speaking to the BBC, Duda said that the supply of aircraft would be a “big problem” as the number of F-16 fighters in the Polish forces is less than 50 units.

“We don’t have enough … and we will need more,” he added.

He also pointed out that F-16 combat aircraft are in serious need of maintenance, and therefore “it is not enough to send only a few of them.”

Duda stressed that any decision regarding the provision of combat aircraft should be a “joint decision” by NATO, and not a decision taken by an individual country.

It is noteworthy that the provision of aircraft was one of the main topics that President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky spoke about during his recent European tour, but Western countries have not declared their readiness to provide Ukraine with aircraft in the near future.
