During a visit to Sao Paulo, Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said the government is considering transferring F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine and is in talks with its allies, Reuters reports.

According to Rutte, the government is actively discussing this issue with Denmark, the UK, some other countries in Europe and the US.

But before that, it is necessary to reach an agreement between all partners, as was the case in the past before the delivery of howitzers and Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine.

The Prime Minister stressed that the Netherlands must help Ukraine in this fight, because if Putin succeeds in Ukraine, it will become a threat to the security of all of Europe, including its largest cities such as Amsterdam, Berlin and Paris.
