Supplying Ukraine with F-16s will help restore global food security - Kuleba

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has said that providing Ukraine with F-16 fighter jets will help restore global food security.

Ukraine's foreign policy chief reported this on Twitter, according to Ukrinform.

"Providing Ukraine with F-16s will also help restore global food security. With a squadron of well-equipped F-16s, Ukraine will be able to keep Russian warships and aircraft away from the Black Sea Grain Corridor thus securing its route for an uninterrupted flow of grain vessels," Kuleba wrote.
