In an interview with Euronews Romania, the Ukrainian deputy prime minister stated that it is not worth advancing without more means, such as the F-16 fighters.
“It’s not a question of whether we need fighter jets or not.”
“It is a question of whether we accept that people die on the ground, and then it is absolutely devastating rhetoric to hear that Ukraine failed to carry out all ground operations. Yes, we could, but at the price of the lives of thousands of people . So we prefer to wait for the F-16 (fighters) and be successful“Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Olga Stefanishina told Euronews.
The Ukrainian counteroffensive against the Russian invasion is not having the expected results. There are, internally and externally, those who accuse the Ukrainian authorities of errors that are compromising the ground “counteroffensive.”
And the situation could get worse.
It is increasingly difficult to reach a deal to provide more US aid to Ukraine before the end of the year.
Despite warnings from the White House about the consequences of inaction, the impasse in Congress persists.
