Slovakia follows Poland to pledge MIG-29 jets to Ukraine
DW, 17 Mar 2023
The Slovak government approved sending 13 MIG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine, Prime Minister Eduard Heger said on Friday, stepping up its military assistance to Kyiv in its fight against the Russian invasion.
Slovakia is the second country to send war planes to Kyiv after Poland, which announced on Thursday it would do so.
Its fleet of MiG-29 planes was retired last summer, and most of them are not in operational condition. It will send those that are operational, and the rest will go for spare parts.
