A push to send Ukraine jets has been made following the administration's decision to send 31 M1 Abrams tanks to the wartorn European nation. An adviser to Ukraine's defense minister told Reuters that the country is actively trying to get the jets, calling it the "next big hurdle." Pentagon Deputy Press Secretay Sabrina Singh also would not rule out sending the jets during a press briefing last week.
"This is a capability that would require training. It would require more people to come off the battlefield to learn an entirely new system. And again, the Ukrainians have proven that they can learn complicated, complex challenging systems. ... In terms of like, the Abrams [tanks], it is more the sustainment, the maintenance when it's on the battlefield. With the F-16s, again, another challenging system would require training.
Biden has said in the past that sending jets to Ukraine would cause "World War III." He said so after an offer from Poland to transfer 28 Soviet-designed MiG 29s. "The idea that we're going to send in offensive equipment and have planes and tanks and trains going in with American pilots and American crews. Just understand, don't kid yourself, no matter what y'all say, that's called World War III."
