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.
The Danish air force has purchased 77 F-16 jets since the 1970s, according to the country’s armed forces. Approximately 30 of them are in operation, according to local media reports.
