Warsaw will soon hand over another batch of MiG-29 fighter jets to Kyiv.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki stated this in his speech to the Atlantic Council in Washington.
“The transfer of the next batch (of MiG-29s – ed.) is underway,” Morawiecki said.
He noted that the Polish Air Force currently has 48 F-16 jets. Allies also support Poland, in particular the USA, which sent F-22s to the Republic of Poland as part of strengthening NATO’s eastern flank.
He reminded that next year Poland will receive F-35 multi-purpose fighter jets from the United States. Therefore, according to him, Poland no longer needs MiG-29 jets.
As reported by Ukrinform, the Federal Government of Germany approved Poland’s request to send MiG-29 fighter jets from the stocks of the former GDR to Ukraine. Last week, Polish President Andrzej Duda announced that Poland had already transferred eight MiG-29 jets to Ukraine and is preparing to transfer six more.
