Zelensky announces important decisions on 'fighter jet coalition' for Ukraine

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and UK Prime Minister Britain Rishi Sunak have discussed the creation of a "fighter jet coalition" to supply modern fighter jets to Ukraine.

Zelensky said this at a joint briefing with Sunak in London, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

According to the head of state, this is "a very important topic for Ukraine, because we cannot control the skies."

"We want to create this coalition of fighter jets, and I'm very confident about that. We talked about it and [...] you will hear some, I think, important decisions soon. But I think we have to work a little bit more on it," Zelensky said.
