America has announced to provide F-16 fighter jets and pilot training to Ukraine.
After this announcement, Russia became angry.
Russia has told Western countries to be prepared to take big risks.
Moscow: Once again, Russia is angry with the Western countries. Now Russia has warned the Western countries about its consequences. In fact, Western countries are continuously helping Ukraine in the long-running Russia-Ukraine war. Russia is already angry about this. After the US announced the delivery of F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Grushko said on Saturday that supplying F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine would take a big risk.
Alexander Grushko said this on the sidelines of the 31st meeting of the Foreign and Defense Policy Council when asked to comment on the possible delivery of F-16 aircraft to Ukraine, according to news agency ANI. He also said, ‘We see that Western countries stick to a growth scenario, which carries huge risks for them. In any case, we will consider this while planning. We have all the necessary means to achieve our goals.

Earlier, US President Joe Biden announced during the G-7 summit on Friday that the US would train some Ukrainian pilots on F-16 fighter jets. According to the report, Ukrainian pilots could be trained in Europe, not America. US personnel will travel to Europe to participate in training with allies and partners. According to the report, the training of the Ukrainian pilots provided by the United States may take more than a month. However, it will be started within the next week, according to the report.
The decision is a major shift for Biden since earlier this year he said he did not believe Ukraine needed the F-16s. In recent days, UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has also been specifically urging countries that have warplanes to send them to Ukraine, so that the country can better defend itself against daily Russian airstrikes. At the same time, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky welcomed the decision. However, Russia has warned Western countries about this.
