The Ukrainian Air Force has added about 20 more operational aircraft to its fleet because of an influx of spare parts, according to a senior US defense official, APA reports citing CNN.

Though the official wouldn't specify which country had provided the aircraft parts, the official said Wednesday that the US and other countries had worked "to get them the parts they need to get them in the air."

The flow of spare parts has allowed Ukraine to expand its fleet of operational military aircraft, despite Russia's ongoing invasion. The country has more aircraft now than it did three weeks ago, the official said.
