Denmark ready to provide Ukraine with F-16 jets, Danish Defense Minister says

Denmark is ready to provide Ukraine with F-16 fighter jets after the approval of the United States, which manufactures these aircraft, according to the acting Danish Defense Minister, Troels Lund Poulsen, Radio 4 reported.

“Ukraine needs aircraft. More than ever, if they want to win their fight. This also applies to Danish F-16 fighters,” Poulsen said.

Denmark has 43 F-16 fighters, 30 of which are in active use. The Danish Air Force plans to replace the F-16 jets with modern F-35 fighters.

Ukrainian pilots will soon come to Denmark, where they will be trained to fly and maintain F-16 aircraft, according to Radio 4. The training will take place at the Skrydstrup base in Jutland, the northern part of Denmark.
