Duda: Poland to hand Ukraine 4 MiG-29 fighters in near future
Polish President Andrzej Duda has announced the transfer of four MiG-29 aircraft to Ukraine in the near future.
He said this at a press conference with the Czech president on Thursday, the Rzeczpospolita newspaper reported.
In the next few days we will hand over four planes to Ukraine in full working order. The rest of the planes are being serviced and prepared, he added, without naming the exact number of MiG-29s that Poland will provide to Ukraine, Duda said.
The President also stressed that the decision to hand over the planes had been made at the level of the state authorities.
It is safe to say that we are literally sending these MiGs to Ukraine at this moment. We still have a dozen of these MiGs. These are MiGs, which we received in the early 1990s," noted the Polish President.
At the same time, it is noted that the transfer of the planes to Ukraine will not affect Poland's defence capability in any way, because these aircraft will replace the FA-50 from South Korea.
