The U.S. has given NATO countries a “green light” willing to hand over fighters to Ukrainian troops as Russia seeks to escalate military attacks in Ukraine, but none have come forward. The proposal has not been successful yet. I have a concrete plan to supply fighter planes to Ukraine.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has urged US and European countries to assist Kyiv by handing over fighters to Ukrainian troops.

Like most other military parameters, the Russian army is far superior to the Ukrainian army when it comes to air superiority fighters.

Ukraine has 67 fighters and 34 attack helicopters, and Russia has 1,500 fighters and 538 combat helicopters.

Will Polish pilots fly aircraft to Ukraine, or will Ukrainian pilots fly them from Polish airfields, even if Poland decides to supply more fighters to Ukraine?

In both situations Russia can be seen as a direct involvement in Poland’s war.

It’s hard to imagine other countries sending resources like fighters to Kyiv when the United States reveals that it will not send ground forces or air support to help Ukrainians.

UN Ambassador Linda Thomas-Greenfield said, “President Biden is very confident that US troops will not be placed on the ground or in the air to escalate this war and make it an American war against Russians. Clarified.

“But it’s also very clear that we support Ukraine in every other way. We’ve provided over $ 1 billion in support over the past few days. Before that, we provided training to them. We are working with allies, frontline countries and border countries to support their efforts. “

Kiev may just run out if NATO does not participate in the fight as Russia has begun to accelerate its advance to Kyiv and Central Ukraine.

The European Union has previously stated that it will send fighters to Ukraine, but it is not yet clear which country has offered in this regard, but Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria and Slovakia can provide fighters to Ukraine. It was speculated. They use the same Soviet-era fighters, such as the MiG-29 and Su-25, which are part of the Ukrainian Air Force.

Ukrainian President Zelensky has already expressed his helplessness and dissatisfaction with NATO’s hesitation in going forward and trying to help.

“There was a NATO summit, a weak summit, a confused summit, and a summit where it was clear that not everyone thought the fight for freedom in Europe was the number one goal,” Volodymyr Zelensky said last week. Said.

Zelenskyy is also promoting a “no-fly zone” over Ukraine, which basically means that Russian aircraft cannot enter Ukraine’s airspace, but this request is directly involved in the fighting. Rejected by Nato because of the possibility. The United States is trying to avoid it.

“No-fly zone” means blocking Russian airspace, such as aircraft, helicopters, and missiles, from entering Ukrainian airspace. This situation is only possible if the Nato army deploys assets to counter the Russian army.

The United Nations Security Council implemented a “no-fly zone” between the 1992 Bosnian War and the 2011 Libyan Civil War. However, in such a situation, there was a risk of retaliation from other countries. In the war between Russia and Ukraine, such measures would mean a direct conflict between Russia and the Nato army.
