Slovakia Completes Delivery of 13 MiG-29 Fighter Jets to Ukraine

Monday, 17 April 2023

Slovakia has already sent to Ukraine all 13 MiG-29 fighter jets that the Slovak government had previously decided to provide to Ukraine for countering the Russian invasion.

According to Aktuality, after the first four fighter jets were handed over to Ukrainian pilots in March 2023, the remaining nine aircraft have also been successfully delivered to Ukrainian forces. 

"This delivery was carried out by land with maximum safety in mind, and once again, a huge thank you to all the forces involved because, in such cases, it is a really important and complicated logistical operation," Nad' said.

In March, the Slovak Armed Forces released a video showing the process of sending the first four Soviet-made MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine.

On 17 March, the Slovak government decided to supply 13 MiG-29 fighters to Ukraine at an extraordinary online meeting.

Slovakia announced its decision the day after Polish President Andrzej Duda announced the provision of four MiG-29s to Ukraine in the coming days.
