The Dutch government has announced plans to deploy 24 F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine soon.

Kajsa Ollongren, the Dutch Defense Minister, stated on Monday, July 1st, that necessary permits have been issued for sending these fighter jets to Ukraine.

Ollongren disclosed this in a letter to the Dutch Parliament on the final working day of the current government. The transfer of power to the new Dutch government is scheduled for Tuesday.

Ms. Ollongren clarified that a few flights of these fighter jets would be initially dispatched, and Ukraine would receive them based on security considerations.

The Netherlands is a key supporter among Western coalition countries providing military aid to Ukraine in its conflict with Russia. The dispatch of F-16 fighter jets aims to bolster Ukraine’s air force in its defense against the Russian military.

Previously, the Netherlands had sent some of its fighter jets to a training center in Romania to train Ukrainian pilots to fly them.

Since the outbreak of the war between Russia and Ukraine, the humanitarian situation in Ukraine has deteriorated significantly.

Millions of people have been displaced from their homes, seeking refuge both within Ukraine and in neighboring countries. Infrastructure, including hospitals and schools, has been severely damaged, exacerbating the already dire living conditions for civilians.

The ongoing conflict has led to widespread food and medicine shortages, affecting the most vulnerable populations, including children and the elderly.

The international community continues to provide humanitarian aid to alleviate the suffering, but the need remains urgent as the conflict shows no signs of abating, prolonging the plight of the Ukrainian people.
