Denmark agrees to hand over US F-16 fourth-generation fighter jets to Ukraine, but on one condition

The first country has announced its readiness to hand over to the Ukrainian Air Force American fourth generation F-16 Fighting Falcon fighters. It is Denmark.

Here's What We Know

Acting Defence Minister Troels Lund Poulsen has said that Denmark is ready to send F-16 fighters to Ukraine on one condition. Denmark will provide the Ukrainian Air Force with the planes if the deliveries are approved by the United States. But it was already clear.

There are 43 F-16 Fighting Falcon fighters in service with the Royal Danish Air Force, 30 of which are an active part of the fleet. But they are now being replaced by the more modern American fifth-generation F-35 Lightning II fighters.
