According to him, the Group of Seven (G7) leaders on Friday will discuss increasing military support for Ukraine, including F-16 fighters.


"As for military support for Ukraine, today we have the opportunity to discuss this topic with Joe Biden and other G7 members," Michel said.

Earlier, CNN reported that the administration of President Joe Biden in recent weeks made it clear to European allies that the United States would be allowed to transfer F-16 fighters to Ukraine.

In addition, the Yahoo News portal received a document from the US Air Force, which states that the training program for Ukrainian F-16 pilots can last for four months.
