Boris Johnson says Britain should “break the ice” and supply Typhoon fighter jets to Ukraine

The Former Prime Minister spoke on the eve of the first anniversary of Russia’s military offensive in the region

Boris Johnson has said Britain should “break the ice” and supply Typhoon fighter jets to Ukraine.

On the eve of the anniversary of the Russian invasion, the former prime minister said it was “absolutely crucial” the Ukrainians had the equipment they needed.

“What the Ukrainians want is (American) F16s. We don’t have F16s, we do have Typhoons. I think there is an argument for the UK breaking the ice and giving them some Typhoons,” he told Sky News.

“If it is a question of training people up to use those machines, we can do that.”

His comments come after the Defence Secretary also indicated that further military aid could be supplied.

Ben Wallace said planes currently held by Nato countries could be given to Ukraine.

The Defence Secretary stressed the battle in Ukraine was “not a Nato conflict”.
