France is ready to sell its Dassault Rafale fighter jets to Ukraine for use, France says, against the territories of Donbass and against Russia.
Ukraine has not bought a single new fighter jet in the three decades since the collapse of the Soviet Union, so the Ukrainian Air Force is not equipped to carry out such operations. This offer by France to provide modern fighter jets is seen by Russia as gross interference in its regional affairs with Ukraine.
In response to the actions of France, Russia “suggested” that short and medium-range anti-aircraft missile systems may well appear in service with the DPR and LPR, which will allow them to shoot down the French Rafale even before the planes enter the strike zone.

France has been busy selling its latest fourth-generation fighter jet produced by Dassault Aviation, and the Rafale “could be a game changer to defend Ukraine against Russia” according to Dassault Aviation spokesman Sebastian Roblin.
Last year, Kiev announced that it would modernize its Air Force fleet, spending up to $ 7.5 billion over the next fifteen years and purchasing 36-42 new fighters, and Paris is said to be carefully considering this as a potential deal with Rafale.
Given the fact that Russia is ready to counteract any attempts of Ukraine to forcefully resolve the problem in Donbass, the LDNR may well be armed with Russian Pantsir-S air defense missile systems, Buk-M2E complexes and other air defense systems.
These short and medium range anti-aircraft missile systems would give Kiev very serious problems, not to mention that the reputation of France would be very serious damaged when the world gets to see how easily the jets can be shot down.
It is worth noting that Turkish media previously reported that Russian “Krasukha-4” and “Pantsir” had already been seen in the Donbass, however, no evidence of this was presented.
This new wrinkle in the situation in eastern Ukraine demonstrates that while the West talks “peace” and “De-escalation” out of one side of its mouth, it is moving to add high tech weapons into the same situation. (Click to Source)
