ANOTHER NATION OPTS TO PROVIDE UKRAINE WITH F-16 FIGHTER JETS

PRIORLY, THE NETHERLANDS AND DENMARK HAD MADE SIMILAR ANNOUNCEMENTS.
Norway has reached a decision to allocate a segment of its F-16 aircraft to Ukraine, as reported by the local outlet TV2, citing several independent sources.

Presently, Norway boasts a fleet of 57 aircraft of this specific model.

In this manner, Norway marks itself as the third NATO member state, following the footsteps of the Netherlands and Denmark, in contributing F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine.

This development emerges amidst the visit of Norway’s Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre to Kyiv on the occasion of Ukraine’s Independence Day.

On August 19, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov declared that the training for Ukrainian pilots on the F-16 has already been initiated. The coalition of nations involved includes 11 countries, with the Netherlands and Denmark taking charge in spearheading the training initiative for Ukrainian pilots, technicians, and engineers.

In the meantime, the United States is on the verge of endorsing the conveyance of F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine following the conclusion of pilot training.
