On April 17, Slovakia claimed that it had completed the transfer of 13 MiG-29 fighters promised to Kiev. Bratislava announced its decision to transfer the fighters to Kiev on March 17. The first batch of 4 aircraft was transfered to Ukraine on March 23.
According to the head of the Ministry of Defence of Slovakia claimed that transfer of the remaining 9 aircraft was carried out by land and it was “an important and complex logistical operation.”
Slovakian authorities attempted to calm down their population, claiming that the country does not need the MiG-29, but these aircraft will provide valuable support to Ukraine. In its turn, Bratislava will receive 12 new AH-1Z Viper combat helicopters from the US.
Earlier on April 3, Poland also sent several MiG-29 fighters to Ukraine. It was not reported how many aircraft the country was going to deliver to Ukraine and in what time frame. In February, media reported that Bulgaria was considering sending fighter jets to Ukraine, but Sofia claimed that it was not ready to do it for free.
However, there is never enough gifs for the Kiev regime. The representative of the Ukrainian Air Forces has recently claimed that Ukraine needs any help, but Kiev still waiting for US F-16 fighters or other fourth-generation aircraft. In its turn, Washington sees no need for transfer of advanced military aircraft to their puppets yet. The West led by the US is mainly aimed at escalating the military conflict and prolonging the war as long as possible.
