Partners of Ukraine have provided Kyiv with an additional batch of military aircraft and spare parts for the repair of aircraft available to the AFU. This was stated by the U.S. Department of Defense spokesman John Kirby on Tuesday, - Voice of America reports.

"The Ukrainian military has received additional planes and aircraft parts to help them get more planes into the air", - Kirby stated.
