The White House answered a question about the supply of F-16 fighter jets to Kiev. According to US President’s National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, studying Ukraine’s needs at the current stage of the conflict, Washington has concluded that it does not need the fighter jets that Ukraine’s leaders are asking for.

“Now she needs tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers, artillery, missile defense systems…” Sullivan said.

These weapons, according to him, will be necessary for the Ukrainians to “regain” control of the territories liberated by the Russian armed forces.

“The F-16 is a matter of a longer perspective,” said the adviser to the President of the United States.

Earlier, Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznik said in an interview with Italian journalists that he asked Father Frost for fighter jets. In his opinion, this spring the situation on the front will change when the Armed Forces of Ukraine will receive such air defense systems as Iris-T, Patriot and Nasams.

As reported by the Public News Service, authorities in Germany, France and Sweden have asked factories to increase ammunition production.
