F-16 fighters will be delivered to Ukraine in the near future, states Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy after meeting Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen.

"During the meeting, we had the opportunity to discuss the progress of preparations for the transfer of Danish F-16 aircraft, which will arrive in Ukraine in the near future," he said.

According to the President, the parties also discussed the approval of the negotiation framework and the start of negotiations on Ukraine's accession to the EU in June.

"I am grateful to Mette Frederiksen for participating in the Peace Summit and active assistance of Denmark in engaging the countries of the Global South in the implementation of the Peace Formula," the Head of State noted.

F-16 for Ukraine

Ukraine may receive 14 F-16 fighters as early as 2024.

It is assumed that some of the F-16 fighters transferred to Ukraine will be based abroad. They will remain in centers where they will be used to train our pilots and aviation personnel.

Recently, it was reported that the Netherlands may deliver the first F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine this summer. This will happen after the first planes are delivered by Denmark.
