‘The intentions to supply MiG-29 fighters to Ukraine are a reminder of the attempts to rid the Polish and Slovak arsenal of no longer used armaments,’ the spokesman said.
Peskov said that the presence of the aircraft in the hands of the Ukrainian Armed Forces will hardly influence fighting against the Russian military technology.
Earlier, Polish President Andrzej Duda assured that Kiev would receive the first four MiG-29 fighters from Warsaw in the next few days, while the Slovak government approved the transfer of 13 MiG-29 fighters to Ukraine.
Russia started the special military operation in Ukraine on February 24, 2022 with the aim of protecting Donbass citizens from the Ukrainian Army.
Some nine countries committed to sending about 150 German-made Leopard tanks to Ukraine.
The Russian Defense Ministry warned that tensions over the growing military presence of North Atlantic Organization member countries near the country’s borders pose an escalation of the conflict.
