NATO has made a statement on the F-16 for Ukraine

Alnyas is planning long-term assistance for Ukraine, and Russia will not be able to “wait for it,” Jens Stoltenberg assured.

The training of Ukrainian pilots on the F-16 and the possible future transfer of these aircraft to Ukraine does not make NATO a party to the conflict. This is what Alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in Brussels, Ukrinform reported on Tuesday, May 23.

He welcomed the political decision of some countries on the F-16 aircraft.

“I think this is a good idea. I welcome the decision of some allied countries to start training pilots, allowing the aircraft to be delivered later. But I leave this right to individual allies countries to announce exactly when they started such training,” Stoltenberg said.

He also welcomed US President Biden’s announcement about his readiness to help Ukraine with the supply of aircraft, as the Americans are the manufacturers and suppliers of the F-16.

“All this sends a very clear signal that we expect long-term help (for Ukraine), and Russia will not be able to “wait.” President Putin started this war, he can end it. We must remember what this war is, it is a war of occupation. Ukraine has the right to defend itself, which is prescribed in the UN Charter. We are helping Ukraine to exercise this right. This does not make the Alliance a party to the conflict. We support Ukraine in its defense against aggression,” Stoltenberg emphasized.

Earlier on Tuesday, EU High Representative Josep Borrell said several countries, including Poland, had begun teaching Ukrainian pilots how to fly the F-16. Even the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has not yet confirmed this information.

And the Pentagon said when the first F-16 fighter could appear in Ukraine.
