US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said Sunday that the United States was "working actively" on a deal with Poland to supply Ukraine with fighter jets. The deal, according to reports, could involve Poland handing over its existing MIG-29s, a Soviet/Russian-made jet fighter Ukrainian pilots are familiar with, to Ukraine. The US would then provide its F-16 fighters to Poland as replacements. US officials, including Blinken, had downplayed the possibility of any NATO member supplying besieged Ukraine since the beginning of this week. But speaking in Moldova Sunday, Blinken confirmed it was under active discussion.
