Norway says it will donate six F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine

Norway will donate six F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine, the Norwegian government said in a statement on Wednesday (10) as NATO leaders attended a summit in Washington.

NATO member state leaders are set to unveil a new package of arms donations to Ukraine to defend against Russia’s invasion, which began in February 2022.

Hoping to change the course of the war, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky wants the 32-member collective security alliance to send more weapons and money and offer security guarantees.

Norwegian Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere said Norway’s deliveries of F-16s were planned to begin in 2024.

A senior NATO official said this week that Ukraine has not yet amassed the munitions and personnel needed to mount its own large-scale offensive operations.
