Slovakia and Poland have both “jointly” agreed their “readiness” to send MiG-29 fighter jets to Kyiv as “people in Ukraine are dying.”
During the EU meeting of Defence Ministers which was held in Stockholm on Wednesday the two countries made their agreement as the war in Ukraine is “inhumane” and it would be “irresponsible” not to.
Slovak Minister of Defence Jaroslav Nad has said on Thursday that Poland have expressed their readiness to transfer the fighter jets.
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.”

“This is inhumane and irresponsible.”

Both NATO and the West have been warned that “sooner or later” they will have no choice but “to fight for real” against Russia.
This comes as Vladimir Putin warned that it will be on “London’s conscience” if the UK were to send jets to Ukraine as the “ramifications” will hit the “entire globe.”
In a statement the Russian embassy in London warned in a message to the UK, the West and European leaders, that there will be “bloodshed, next round of escalation, and subsequent military and political ramifications for the European continent and the entire globe.”
The former Prime Minister, Boris Johnson told MPs that the UK should provide more equipment to Ukraine and this should include fighter jets and vast amounts of ammunition for them.
The former Prime Minister said, “We have more than 100 Typhoon jets. We have more than 100 Challenger 2 tanks.
“The best single use for any of these items is to deploy them now for the protection of the Ukrainians – not least because that is how we guarantee our own long-term security.”
