Lavrov: Russia to respond if West trains Kiev pilots on F-16

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov warned on Monday that Moscow possesses the necessary resources to reply if NATO members train Ukrainian pilots to fly F-16 fighter aircraft.

Lavrov specifically addressed the announcement that the Netherlands and Denmark will be leading a group of European countries in the effort to teach Kiev forces how to use the jets and accused the two countries of advancing Washington's agenda in affairs of the Old Continent. "I have no doubt that our armed forces have the ability to respond," the minister stressed.
