Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Wednesday that delivering F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine will be a strong signal that Russia will be defeated in its war with Kyiv, APA reports citing Teletrader.
"The very first Ukrainian F-16 will be one of the strongest signals from the world that Russia will only lose because of its aggression. It will be weaker and further isolated," Zelensky said in his nightly address. "The main thing is the speed in training and in supply, meaning the time between decisions in real protection for our skies," he added.

Last week, US President Joe Biden approved the training of Ukrainian pilots on F-16 jets and noted Washington will not object to NATO allies sending the aircraft to Ukraine.
