Moscow, February 9 – The British Prime Minister’s office said that London will not transfer combat aircraft to Kyiv if this would affect the security of Britain itself, the Telegraph writes.
On Wednesday, Volodymyr Zelensky, during a speech in the British Parliament, asked the UK for combat aircraft. Sky News, citing a Downing Street spokesman, reported that British Prime Minister Sunak asked Defense Secretary Wallace to find out what planes London could transfer to Ukraine.
The Prime Minister’s Office said the authorities would not send fighter jets to Ukraine if they endangered the UK’s security.
A representative of the Prime Minister’s Office declined to comment on reports of the possibility of supplying the fighters to Kyiv, noting that Britain has a sufficient number of Typhoon and F-35 fighters.
A spokesman for the Prime Minister’s Office said: “Of course we will not do anything that would jeopardize the security of the United Kingdom.”
