MOSCOW: Western countries will be running “colossal risks” if they supply Ukraine with F-16 fighter jets, TASS news agency quoted Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko on Saturday.
Grushko was responding to a question about the implications of providing the jets, which Ukraine has requested from NATO countries.
It has yet to win commitments to deliver the planes. Still, U.S. President Joe Biden told G7 leaders on Friday that Washington supports joint allied training programs for Ukrainian pilots on F-16s, senior U.S. officials said.
