Presidential chief-of-staff Andriy Yermak believes that the question of long-range weapons and fighter jets for Ukraine is a solvable one, he said on Telegram messenger on Feb. 9.

“Details are coming a little later,” the chief-of-staff wrote.

“Well, swamp [a euphemism used by Ukrainians in relation to Moscow, due to the city’s location- ed.], what's wrong with your face?” Yermak added.

Ukraine has been asking for fighter jets to be supplied from partner countries since the beginning of Russia’s full-scale invasion, though no country has agreed to send the modern weapons to Ukraine as of yet. However, during a recent address to the European Parliament by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, EU Parliament President Roberta Metsola called EU member states to consider the possibility.

The UK has also announced that it will be expanding its current training program for Ukrainian soldiers to include fighter pilots and marines.
