Newsline: Polish ambassador says Ukrainian no-fly zone would end war quicker

Imposing a no-fly zone over Ukraine would help bring the conflict there to a faster conclusion and save lives, the Polish ambassador to Kyiv said on Thursday, as Russia continued a relentless bombardment of several cities. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has been pleading for NATO to impose a no-fly zone, but the alliance is wary of any step that might draw it into direct conflict with Russia. “Every day of delay costs hundreds of human lives,” Bartosz Cichocki told private broadcaster TVN24 from Kyiv. “This is an extension of the conflict that could be ended much faster precisely thanks to the closure of the airspace.” (https://news.yahoo.com/ukrainian-no-fly-zone-end-082336286.html) The United States on Tuesday rejected a surprise offer by Poland to transfer its Russian-made MiG-29 fighter jets to a U.S. base in Germany and put them at the disposal of the United States as a way to replenish Ukraine’s air force.
