Warplanes are heading there, according to a Ukrainian minister.
Oleksii Reznikov, the defense minister of Ukraine, claims that Russia will launch a significant offensive in the upcoming weeks, but that Ukraine has the troops and resources to fend off such an assault.
Despite recent statements by Western officials that airplanes would not be forthcoming, the defence minister indicated that Ukraine’s partners would agree to give fighter aircraft to confront Russian forces.
Oleksii Reznikov, Ukraine’s defense minister, also stated during a press conference on Sunday that Russia will launch a significant offensive in the upcoming weeks, but that Ukraine has the troops and resources to fend off such an assault.
Despite tanks and other Western weaponry not arriving in time, the Ukrainian military will stop the operation, he added.
Also, there will be planes, Reznikov said. “The precise kind is the question,” Take into account that this assignment is already finished.
Poland and the Baltic states have so far backed Ukraine in its effort to acquire Western fighter jets. However, a number of Western officials have voiced worry that sending in jets may enrage the Kremlin and entangle their nations further in the conflict, which has claimed tens of thousands of lives and caused immense destruction.
Such jets, according to Kyiv, are necessary to counteract Russia’s air dominance and ensure victory in a Russian onslaught that Reznikov foresaw may start around the war’s one-year anniversary, on February 24.
Reznikov told reporters, “Not all Western weaponry will be there by then, but we have the resources and reserves to help stabilise and continue the offensive.
Since the start of the conflict, Western leaders have resisted Ukraine’s pleas for longer-range missiles and tanks, only to subsequently give in. The most recent example is the warplanes.
