Might post this here as well - Finnish PM on a visit to Ukraine started thinking aloud, whether the Hornets being retired from FAF starting in 2025 could be sent to Ukraine instead of being salvaged for parts, and that this idea should be discussed further, but any such action would have to be coordinated between possible participants. The Defence Minister and armed forces had not been consulted and quickly rebuked this, stating that any fighter being retired according to the plan would be at the very end of its operational life, and that retiring them earlier so that Ukraine could use them in the war would leave a gap in defences (unless replaced somehow). But at least we're not the only ones coming up with such scenarios anymore...

EDIT: of course, on day 377 of the three-day special operation, who knows how much further the war will drag on, so maybe it's still being fought in 2025. :(
