Russia is in a panic over the fifth generation F-35 Lightning II fighters arriving in Europe from the United States against the backdrop of the situation with Ukraine, notes 19FortyFive.

“As tensions with Russia over Ukraine continue to heat up, the first American F-35 stealth fighters have arrived in Europe,” the publication said.

The American edition recalls that currently 16 countries are operating or are going to purchase the F-35 Lightning II (USA, UK, Australia, Canada, Japan, Israel, Italy, Norway, Denmark, Poland, Singapore, Belgium, South Korea, Netherlands, Switzerland and Finland).

“By 2035, there will be more than 500 F-35s in Europe alone, the vast majority of which are in the hands of NATO pilots, which will affect Russia,” writes 19FortyFive.
