"From the beginning of the decision-making process regarding the delivery of F-16 aircraft to Ukraine, Denmark was aware that these aircraft, like other capabilities, are being donated to Ukraine for self-defense and can be used against Russia's military targets, including on its soil," this was stated by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, Lars Lokke Rasmussen, who spoke at a doorstep of the EU Foreign Affairs Council (Trade) in Brussels, APA reports citing Ukrinform.

"The short answer is yes (regarding the possibility of F-16 strikes on Russian territory - ed.). This is not a new position, it is part of our contribution. When we discussed this with our Foreign Affairs Committee in the Danish Parliament, we made it very clear from the beginning – that this is part of self-defense, which will likely also imply the attacks on military facilities on Russian soil," noted the Danish minister.
