Blinken: F-16s en route to Ukraine

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken announced at the NATO Public Forum that F-16 fighter jets from Denmark and the Netherlands are en route to Ukraine.

“I am also pleased to announce: as we speak, the transfer of F-16 jets is underway. Coming from Denmark, coming from the Netherlands. Those jets will fly in the skies of Ukraine this summer,” Blinken said.

The White House released a joint statement from President Biden and the prime ministers of Denmark and the Netherlands, confirming the donation of F-16s to Ukraine.

“The Danish and Dutch governments are in the process of donating American-made F-16s to Ukraine, with the support of the United States,” the statement reads.

Norway has also committed to sending six F-16s, with deliveries set to begin in 2024, as announced by Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.
