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.
