After Poland, Slovakia also decided to send Soviet-era warships to Ukraine to help, reacting to the delivery of warships by the allies in a stern warning.
Slovakia has become the second NATO member after Poland to announce the delivery of Soviet-era MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine.
Slovak Prime Minister Edward Hager announced in a tweet that his government has approved the delivery of 13 MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine.
He said that Slovakia is considering sending a part of its KUB air defense system to Ukraine.
The Prime Minister of Slovakia expressed his happiness at the response of other leaders to the call of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy for more arms supply, saying that the promise will be fulfilled.
On the other hand, the Russian spokesperson strongly condemned the issue of NATO allies providing warplanes to Ukraine and said that providing planes to Ukraine will not affect Russia’s special military operation, but for Ukraine and its people. The problems will increase further.
Russian spokesman Dmitry Paskov said that there is no doubt that all these things will be destroyed during Russia’s special military operation.
It should be noted that Slovakia grounded its MiG-29 fleet last year and no longer uses these aircraft, while Ukraine has demanded the supply of fourth-generation F-16 aircraft from Western countries.
It should also be remembered that earlier NATO member Poland also announced to supply 4 MiG-29 aircraft to Ukraine.
According to foreign media reports, at the time of Russia’s attack on Ukraine, Ukraine had 120 combat-capable MiG-29 and Su-27 aircraft.
