The UK has not been approached formally by Ukraine to provide or backfill aircraft and therefore has made no representations to the governments of Poland, and the United States of America, to facilitate the transfer of MiG-25s to Ukraine.

However, the MOD is currently discussing all aspects of support with the Government of Ukraine. We are committed to supporting Ukraine to defend itself against Russia's illegal and unjustified aggression, and to helping our allies to do the same. Decisions on what defensive support to provide rests with individual governments.
