US President Joe Biden says he will not send F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine to help in the war
The president of U.S, Joe Bidenruled out this Monday, 30, sending F-16 fighters to Ukraine to help in the war against the Russian invasion. When asked by journalists at the White House on whether he was in favor of sending the war planes, he said “no”, without further details. According to Ukrainian leaders, fighter jets would be the most important “weapons” to fight against Moscow. Last Wednesday, the 25th, the US announced that it was going to send 31 M1 Abrams battle tanks to Ukraine. The armored vehicles should arrive in the European country in a few months. This was a decision that helped to break a diplomatic impasse with the Germany on how best to help Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, in the war against Russia. At the opportunity, Biden said that the tanks are to help Ukrainians “improve their ability to maneuver in open terrain”, he stressed. He also thanked Germany for supplying 14 Leopard 2 tanks to the Ukrainians. “The expectation on the part of Russia is that we are going to separate”, began Biden about the allies of the American government and Europe. “But we are totally, totally and completely united,” he reinforced. The president also commented that the measure of sending tanks is not an “offensive threat to Russia”, he added. In addition to the two countries, the UK already offered a dozen Challenger 2 tanks to Ukraine. the government of Norway also announced last Wednesday that it will send Leopard 2 tanks to the Ukrainians, but did not specify the quantity. Biden is expected to travel to Europe, as the Russian invasion of Ukraine will complete one year on the 24th. “I will go to Poland, although I don’t know when”, confirmed the American president.
