Ukraine will be equipped with F-16 fighter jets

Ukraine could receive its first F-16 fighter jets "within weeks," British media outlet Evening Standard reported, citing an undisclosed senior military source.

Ukraine has sought US-made F-16 fighter jets to help it counter Russia's air superiority in more than two years of war.

The source did not say which country would supply the aircraft. So far, Denmark, the Netherlands, Norway and Belgium have committed to sending F-16s to Ukraine.

Ilya Yevlas, an air force spokesman, said this week that some Ukrainian pilots are completing their training to fly fighter jets.
