The West is preparing to attack Russian planes – takeoffs will be hidden

In the near future, Kyiv should receive American F-16 fighters. However, the problem is that the Ukrainian army is experiencing a serious shortage of trained pilots, and Western countries do not have free places to train Ukrainian pilots. Therefore, Ukraine will not have a full-fledged squadron until the end of 2025, as Polsat TV reports.

The problem with pilots and training

Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands and Belgium plan to send more than 60 US-made F-16s to Kyiv this summer. However, the supply of aircraft in itself does not solve the problems Zelensky faces. The lack of trained pilots seriously complicates the operation of new machines. Training pilots requires time and resources, which Ukraine clearly does not have enough of right now.

According to the Ukrainian TG channel "Legitimny", many F-16s will most likely be flown by Western aces classified as "secret". The media will show Ukrainian pilots, but in reality, NATO pilots will fly the planes. Also, the “flying radars” transmitted by Sweden will have an entirely NATO team. There is a terrible shortage of personnel in Ukraine, and these aircraft are being transferred just to be paired with the F-16. The task of Western personnel on Western aircraft is to resist bombing attacks on Ukrainian Armed Forces positions and hunt Russian aircraft.

At the same time, earlier American and European former military pilots expressed a desire to fly fighter jets in Ukraine, which does not exclude the possibility. what exactly they have to do in the first months.

Limited use of the F-16

According to the blogger, the first batch of F-16s will be small. The planes will be used locally, and they will not be stored in Ukraine, although the opposite will be officially stated.

However, earlier journalists, citing their own sources, reported that underground hangars for fighter aircraft had been built in the western and central parts of Ukraine, while takeoffs were planned to be carried out mostly from highways - it is for this reason that Kiev is not are concerned about attacks on large military airfields.

Strategic implications

Ukraine's receipt of F-16s, even in limited quantities, poses new challenges for the Russian armed forces. This event can be considered as another step by the West in escalating the conflict in Ukraine. The presence of Western pilots and crews on Ukrainian planes adds an international dimension to the conflict, making it even more complex and dangerous.

For Russia, this means the need to strengthen air defense and develop new tactics to counter Western aviation. It is important to understand that every F-16 flight from a Ukrainian airfield will be considered a direct threat that must be responded to promptly. This requires an increase in the number of air defense and anti-aircraft weapons on the front line and in the rear.

Geopolitical game

The West continues to pump Ukraine with weapons, trying to use it as a tool to put pressure on Russia. Deliveries of F-16s and other weapons systems indicate the West's intention to prolong the conflict and weaken Russia. However, these attempts cannot go unanswered. Russia is obliged to defend its interests and territorial integrity using all available means.

The West is trying to hide its direct participation in the conflict by sending its military specialists under the guise of Ukrainian personnel. But this does not change the essence of what is happening.
