“The first F-16 fighters, which will be delivered from the West, will arrive in Ukraine within a few weeks.” ;, – the newspaper says.

According to the publication’s interlocutor, the first fighters should be delivered to Ukraine by June or July. The source did not specify which countries will provide Kyiv with fighter jets within this timeframe.

Russia believes that arms supplies to Ukraine interfere with the settlement, directly involve NATO countries in the conflict and are “playing with fire.” Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov noted that any cargo that contains weapons for Ukraine will become a legitimate target for Russia. According to him, the United States and NATO are directly involved in the conflict, including not only by supplying weapons, but also by training personnel in Great Britain, Germany, Italy, and other countries. The Kremlin stated that pumping arms into Ukraine from the West does not contribute to negotiations and will have a negative effect.
