The Slovakian government has announced that they will now send a fleet of MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine which were retired last summer.
The fleet of 11 fighter jets are not in operational condition at the moment, which comes just 24 hours after Poland announced that they are to send their MiG-29s to Ukraine “within days.”
Last week the Slovak Defence Minister wrote, “At a meeting of the ministers of defense of EU member states on Wednesday in Sweden, a Polish colleague confirmed that his country would agree with the joint progress of Slovakia and Poland in handing over the redundant MiG-29s of both countries to Ukraine.”

He added that the President of Poland confirmed in an interview with CNN their readiness to act.
He added, “I think it’s time to make a decision. People in Ukraine are dying, we can really help them, there is no room for Slovak politicisation.
“This is inhumane and irresponsible.”
Poland will become the first NATO country to have sent fighter aircraft to help President Volodymyr Zelensky’s forces in their fight against Moscow’s forces.
Denmark has now muted that they could send fighter jets to Ukraine and the Danish Prime Minister said that the West are debating if they should send warplanes.
Mette Frederiksen told Danish TV2 today, “This is something we’re discussing in the group of allied countries. It’s a big wish from Ukraine.”
The Kremlin have reacted to Poland and Slovakia sending the jets and they warned that the “planes will be destroyed” and will make no difference to the war in Ukraine.
This could now be seen by Moscow that NATO have entered into a proxy war which seriously risks the conflict widening past Ukraine’s borders into other areas of Europe.
Russia’s former President Dmitry Medvedev warned that “our enemies” goals will lead to a “loss for everyone” and a “collapse” and an “apocalypse.”
Medvedev said that “pumping in of weapons” to Kyiv has stopped any “possibility of reviving negotiations” and seriously risks a global nuclear catastrophe.
Medvedev who is the Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia added, “Our enemies are doing just that, not wanting to understand that their goals will certainly lead to a total fiasco.”
He warned, “Loss for everyone. A collapse. Apocalypse. Where you forget for centuries about your former life, until the rubble ceases to emit radiation.”
