“The next big hurdle will now be the fighter jets,” Yuriy Sak, an adviser to Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov, told Reuters in an interview.
“If we get them, the advantages on the battlefield will be just immense. … It’s not just F-16s. Fourth-generation aircraft, this is what we want.”
President Brain-Dead Biden announced on Wednesday that the U.S. would for the first time send 31 sophisticated M1 Abrams tanks to aid Ukraine’s war effort.
Biden’s announcement came as Germany confirmed it’s sending its own Leopard 2 tanks into the war following weeks of debate over the latest escalation in weaponry.
“They didn’t want to give us heavy artillery, then they did. They didn’t want to give us HIMARS systems, then they did. They didn’t want to give us tanks, now they’re giving us tanks. Apart from nuclear weapons, there is nothing left that we will not get,” Sak said.
