Reznikov invites F-16 pilots to join the Ukrainian Foreign Legion

Ukraine’s Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov offered foreigners certified to operate foreign-made military equipment to come to Ukraine to work, the Ukraine Media Center reported on Monday.

“This also applies to pilots. If there are pilots who know how to fly the F-16s and are willing to participate [in the war], our foreign legion is ready to open its door,” Reznikov said during a press briefing with Denmark’s acting Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen in Odesa.

Poulsen said Denmark is aware of Ukraine’s request for F-16 fighter jects. “I believe that the first step should be to train your pilots. I hope we will have a discussion on the matter, but I must emphasize that the decision on the transfer of aircraft has to be approved jointly with other allies,” TSN quoted Poulsen.
