Danish PM says allies “discussing” whether to send aircraft to Ukraine

Western countries are debating whether to send fighter jets to Ukraine, Denmark’s Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen told Danish TV2 on 16 March, according to the Guardian.

“This is something we’re discussing in the group of allied countries. It’s a big wish from Ukraine,” she said.

On 24 February, Danish acting Minister of Defense Troels Lund Poulsen said Denmark was “open to” sending combat aircraft to Ukraine in the long term.
