Here we are, three years deep into Ukraine’s tussle with the Russian bear.

Dmytro Kuleba, the Foreign Minister, recently dropped a bomb at the World Economic Forum in Davos, proclaiming that grabbing the reins of the sky is their top priority for 2024.

Air superiority, he says, is the linchpin in this ongoing brawl, and he’s banging on the West’s door for some top-tier fighter jets.

We’re talking about a conflict that’s been dancing on the same spot for months on end, forcing Kyiv to shake things up and set its sights on ruling the heavens.

This piece aims to dig into the current scene, Ukraine’s game plan, and the global backup they’re hunting to get things done.

Ukraine’s been throwing punches for a year, but it’s like trying to break concrete with your fists. No dice.

Kuleba and the gang are staring at a deadlock, prompting them to hit pause, recalibrate, and refocus on locking down the skies.

Kuleba reckons whoever owns the air calls the shots in this chaotic opera.
