The United States plans to train Ukrainian fighter pilots on the F-15 and F-16 fighter jets, Andriy Yermak, head of the President's Office, said in a Telegram messenger post on July 15.

Earlier journalist Ostap Yarysh tweeted that the U.S. House of Representatives had passed a $840 billion defense policy bill.

According to the journalist, part of this amount should go to training Ukrainian pilots.

Yermak also confirmed this information.

"The United States plans to train Ukrainian pilots on the F-15 and F-16 fighter jets," he said.

"This amendment to the U.S. Fiscal Year 2023 Defense Funding Bill was supported by the House of Representatives. A total of $100 million is planned to be allocated for this."

In turn, political scientist and publicist Andrei Piontkovsky believes that this is an indirect confirmation that Ukraine will get U.S. fighter jets as military aid to defend against Russia, however, it is still difficult to say when exactly this may happen.
