Dutch Defence Minister Keesa Ollongren has stated that there are no restrictions on Ukraine’s use of F-16s provided by the Netherlands.

She made this statement in an interview with POLITICO.

«Dutch Defence Minister Keesa Ollongren assured Kyiv that the 24 F-16 fighter jets that the Netherlands intends to give to Ukraine can be used to strike targets in Russia», — the publication said.

Ollongren also noted that the Netherlands would not impose restrictions on Ukraine’s use of the fighter jets, unlike Belgium.

«There are no restrictions on the use of F-16s supplied by the Netherlands», — Ollongren said.

According to her, as long as Ukraine complies with Article 51 of the UN Charter and international humanitarian law, military equipment supplied by the Netherlands can be used to achieve military objectives.

«We apply the same principle that we have applied to any other supply, which is that as soon as we hand them over to Ukraine, they can use them. We only ask them to respect international law and the right of self-defence as stated in the UN Charter, which means that they use it to achieve the military objectives that they need to achieve in self-defence», — she said.
