Addressing an economic forum in Russia's Far East on Tuesday, the Russian president dismissed the significance of recent announcements by Ukrainian officials that their armed forces would soon receive F-16 fighter jets from the West.
"They are going to deliver F-16s. Will this change anything? I don't think so. It will just prolong the conflict.”
US officials said last month that Washington had approved sending F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine from Denmark and the Netherlands.
The aircraft, which is equipped with a 20mm cannon and can carry bombs, rockets and missiles, has been on Ukraine's wish list for a long time.
Norway said last month that it will deliver a number of F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine. Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere announced the decision, without telling the exact number of the jets.
