Denmark will send Ukraine all the F-16 fighter jets that were previously agreed upon between the two leaders, says Ambassador of Denmark to Ukraine Ole Egberg Mikkelsen.

"Don't worry. There will definitely be airplanes for Ukraine. This is our entire F-16 fleet, which is now being decommissioned," Mikkelsen said.

The ambassador explained that Denmark is currently disbanding its fleet, as the country will soon receive a new generation of aircraft - F-35.

"Some of them will be delivered to Argentina. There is nothing to worry about. F-16s will be delivered as promised," he emphasized.

At the same time, when asked by a journalist when Ukraine would receive the planes, the ambassador recalled the words of Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen, who had previously said that Denmark would deliver F-16 fighters to Ukraine this summer.

Mikkelsen noted that it is not yet known exactly when this will happen, but he said it will definitely happen in the summer.

Denmark's assistance

Denmark is one of Ukraine's partner countries, which constantly provides our country with military and humanitarian aid, as well as supports sanctions against Russia.

It is known that Denmark has already provided Ukraine with artillery and joined the aviation coalition for training and transferring F-16 fighters.

At the beginning of the month, we wrote that Denmark had started working on a new military aid package to strengthen Ukraine's defense.
