President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that Portugal would train Ukrainian pilots on F-16 fighter jets.
Today, Zelenskyy and Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa discussed defence and security cooperation between the two countries.
"I informed Mr President about the situation on the battlefield and the defence needs of Ukraine. Portugal confirmed its readiness to join the training of Ukrainian pilots and engineers on F-16 aircraft," Zelenskyy noted.
On 23 August, Portuguese President Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa arrived in Ukraine. He visited St Andrew's Church in Bucha, a mass grave where about 200 victims of Russian aggression were found.
