Ukraine and West in ‘fast track’ talks for allies to send long range missiles and planes

Ukraine is urging Western forces to ensure the weapons and equipment contained within the latest rounds of military support are operational in time for spring, when fighting on the frontline is expected to intensify.

Ukraine and its Western allies are engaged in “fast-track” talks on the possibility of equipping the invaded country with long-range missiles and military aircraft, a top Ukrainian presidential aide has said. After “critical” main battle tanks were pledged to Ukraine by the German and US governments on Wednesday, Ukraine is now looking to further bolster its forces as Russia prepares for a spring offensive and the arrival of hundreds of thousands of newly mobilised soldiers. It comes as reports suggest defence officials in the US are now leaning on the Pentagon to consider sending F-16 fighter jets to Kyiv.
