The Air Force of Ukraine received spare parts and components to repair the planes damaged in the battles. The US Government supported the delivery and the press service of the Air Force Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has officially announced about it.
At the same time, earlier Pentagon spokesman John Kirby informed not only about spare parts, but also unnamed aircrafts: "I would just say, without getting into what other nations are providing, that they have received additional platforms and parts to be able to increase their fleet size, their aircraft fleet size.
