BREAKING: Ukraine Gets F-16 Boost From NATO Ally

“The Netherlands Ministry of Defense is readying 6 additional F-16 fighter aircraft for delivery to Ukraine,” Dutch Defense Minister Kajsa Ollongren wrote on X, formerly Twitter. “This brings the total number to 24 F-16s.” Newsweek reached out to the Netherlands Ministry of Defense via email on Monday for further comment.

The Netherlands and Denmark were the first two countries to commit to donating F-16s to Kyiv’s forces, following months of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and other officials requesting the aircraft from their allies. Norway and Belgium also later pledged to provide the fighter jets to Zelensky’s military.

“Ukraine’s aerial superiority is essential for countering Russian aggression,” Ollongren said in her X post.

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte announced in December that the Netherlands was preparing 18 F-16s for Ukraine. Ollongren’s Monday announcement did not provide a timetable for when any of the aircraft would arrive in the country.
