Quote from Oleshchuk: “An F-16 jet has already been to Ukraine. It has touched down on our airfields, we’ve held joint training with F-16 pilots, and so we do have experience operating the F-16 jets. I think this is crucial.”
Details: Oleshchuk also said that Ukraine is currently preparing its runways [for F-16 jets]. “We are making the necessary alterations, improving the surface, improving our airfields’ infrastructure, and building new defence facilities,” he explained.
“So I think we will be able to bring these aircraft to Ukraine as soon as we acquire them,” Oleshchuk concluded.
