Vladimir Putin has warned any country that helps the Ukrainian air force with fighter jets will be pulled into “armed conflict.”

This comes as the US has given Poland who is a member of NATO to send 28 MIG-29 fighter jets to replace the American F-16s.

The Ukrainian President Vlodomyr Zelensky asked for fighter jets to attack Russian jets to defend their airspace.

President Zelensky told 280 US lawmakers the Ukraine’s air force was destroyed on the first day of Vladimir Putin’s invasion.

Speaking on CBS’s Face the Nation, the US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said, “That gets the green light.

“In fact, we’re talking with our Polish friends right now about what we might be able to backfill their needs if in fact they choose to provide these fighter jets to the Ukrainians.

“What can we do?

“How can we help to make sure that they get something to backfill the planes that they’re handing over to the Ukrainians?”

The Kremlin then threatened any countries including NATO against attacking the Russian forces from Ukraine.

Defence Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said, “We know for sure that Ukrainian combat aircraft have flown to Romania and other neighbouring countries.

“The use of the airfield network of these countries for basing Ukrainian military aviation with the subsequent use of force against Russia’s army can be regarded as the involvement of these states in an armed conflict.”

Poland are now considering the dilemma as the Kremlin has threatened that they will attack if the country sends fighter jets to Ukraine.

A Polish government official said in a statement, “Poland is not in a state of war with Russia, but it is not an impartial country, because it supports Ukraine as the victim of aggression.

“It considers, however, that all military matters must be a decision of NATO as a whole.”

The Financial Times reported that the White house are “also working on the capabilities we could provide to backfill Poland if it decided to transfer planes to Ukraine.”
