Ukrainian pilots will begin training on F-16 fighter jets in Denmark later in August, the Danish defense ministry said Friday.
A coalition of 11 countries will be involved in the training, it added.
Some background: CNN reported Thursday that the US has committed to approving the transfer of F-16 fighter jets for Ukraine as soon as training is complete, according to a US official.
Denmark and the Netherlands have taken the lead in preparing a program to train Ukrainian pilots on the American jet, but the US is still working with other countries to see who may provide F-16s to the Ukrainian Air Force.
Ukraine said Wednesday that it didn’t expect to receive F-16s until some time next year.
