France is training Ukrainian pilots to fly Mirage 2000 combat aircraft. The training has been going on since February, Le Figaro has reported.
For more than a month and a half, about 30 Ukrainian pilots have been undergoing expedited training on French fighter-bombers at the Mont de Marsan and Nancy air bases. The decision was made before Volodymyr Zelenskyy's visit to Paris on 8 February. France thus joined the United States, which also trains Ukrainian pilots on F-16s.
Paris may eventually deliver a dozen planes to Kyiv. This issue is no taboo for Paris, the paper said. "I don't rule out anything at all," Emmanuel Macron said in this regard.
