Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has called on Western allies to supply fighter jets to Ukraine to aid in their ongoing war against Russia.
This demand comes in opposition to the decisions made by the current Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, and US President Joe Biden, who have both declined Kyiv's request for warplanes.
While the UK government confirms its support for Ukraine, sending fighter jets is deemed "not practical".
