NATO Countries Have ‘Greenlight’ To Send Fighter Jets To Ukraine, Blinken Says

Secretary of State Antony Blinked told CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the United States had given NATO countries a “greenlight” to send fighter jets to Ukraine if necessary to assist in their war against Russia.

Blinken specifically said Ukraine’s neighbor Poland has permission to send the planes and that the U.S. has already been in discussion with the Polish government about the matter, CBS reported:

“That gets a green-light,” Blinken said in an interview with “Face the Nation” when asked whether the Polish government, a member of NATO, could send fighter planes to Ukraine.  “In fact, we’re talking with our Polish friends right now about what we might be able to do to backfill their needs if in fact they choose to provide these fighter jets to the Ukrainians. What can we do? How can we help to make sure that they get something to backfill the planes that they are handing over to the Ukrainians?”

Additionally, Ukraine’s Ambassador to the U.S. Oksana Markarova told “Face the Nation” that she hopes the polish planes will come “as soon as possible.”

“We are working with our American, especially, friends and allies, on the steady supply of all the ammunition and anti-air, anti-tank and planes to be able to effectively defend our country,” Markarova said.
