Germany said that the delivery of fighter jets to Kiev will not draw the West into the conflict


German Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Defense Minister Boris Pistorius have repeatedly stated in recent days that the country is not going to supply Ukraine with this type of weaponsBERLIN, January 29 /TASS/.

Western military aircraft, if delivered to Ukraine, will help the Kiev authorities and will not make it a party to the conflict. This opinion was expressed by the chairman of the Munich Security Conference Christoph Heusgen on Sunday on the ARD TV channel.

"I believe that the supply of combat aircraft is adequate in order to better protect Ukraine from Russian attacks," he argued. According to the expert, from the point of view of international law, such a step will not make the West a participant in hostilities.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz and Defense Minister Boris Pistorius have repeatedly stated in recent days that Germany is not going to supply fighter jets to Ukraine.

On January 26, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, after the decision of several Western countries to send tanks to Kiev, also called for the provision of modern NATO combat aircraft and long-range missiles. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba claimed that some European colleagues had "taken to work" the issue of providing Kiev with American F-16 fighters.

On January 27, the coordinator for strategic Communications at the White House National Security Council, John Kirby, said that Washington was not surprised by Kiev's request for the supply of fighter jets, including the F-16, but there were no new announcements on this score.
