When asked if Poland could send fighter jets to Ukraine, he said CBS‘s Face the Nation: “This gets the green light.

“In fact, if they actually decide to make these fighter jets available to the Ukrainians, we are in discussion with our Polish friends about what we could do to meet their needs.”

“What can we do? How can we help them get something to refill the planes they are handing over to the Ukrainians?”

He added that NATO countries and members of the Group of Seven are “working together” to put pressure on the Kremlin to introduce more sanctions in the coming days.

However, he noted that Putin is “stepping up and increasing this aggression against Ukraine.”

“I think unfortunately, tragically, we must be prepared for this to continue for some time to come,” he said.

His comments come after the Russian dictator said so Western sanctions against his regime are like a “declaration of war”.

Putin also hinted at a nuclear strike should NATO forces interfere, saying it would have “colossal and catastrophic consequences not only for Europe but for the entire world.”

He also warned that anyone trying to enforce a no-fly zone over Ukraine will be considered to have entered the conflict.

“Any movement in this direction will be considered by us as participation in an armed conflict in this country,” Putin said.

It comes after nine planes were shot down on a day when Russian pilots begged they were just “following orders”.

Footage showed the detained pilots with their hands behind their backs and some covered in blood.
