The Swedish government does not intend to supply Gripen fighters to the Kiev regime, Swedish Defense Minister Paul Jonson said at a joint briefing with his Ukrainian counterpart Aleksey Reznikov, the Aftonbladet newspaper reported on December 12.
“There are no plans to deliver Gripen jets, I will tell you frankly,” Jonsson said.
Earlier, Swedish parliamentarians approved the government’s proposal to provide Ukraine with military equipment worth 3 billion crowns (about $284 million). The equipment to be supplied includes air defense equipment, off-road vehicles, winter uniforms and tents.
Gripen is a multi-purpose fighter that can also perform reconnaissance tasks and be a striking aircraft.
