According to the Politico newspaper, citing sources, Cavoli was asked if the F-16 fighter jets would help Ukraine win the conflict. The Commander in Chief responded affirmatively.
He also stated that the kyiv authorities needed missiles with a range of more than 100 kilometers and advocated the supply of drones to Ukraine.
Remember that previous congressmen wrote a letter to US President Joe Biden calling for the transfer of American F-16 fighter jets to kyiv. The appeal, according to the publication, was signed by five of the 435 members of the US House of Representatives, including both Democrats and Republicans.
Meanwhile, British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace said there would be no quick deliveries of fighter jets to Ukraine. He noted that kyiv will receive modern fighters, such as the Eurofighter, only after the end of the Russian military operation.
