Slovakia has already handed all of the announced 13 MiG-29 Fulcrum fighter jets over to Ukraine. With the first batch of four MiG-29s flown to Ukraine by Ukrainian Air Force pilots in March 2023, the remaining nine have by now been successfully transferred to the Ukrainian forces.

In a statement, Defence Minister Jaroslav Naď said: “The transfer of equipment was conducted by road, while maintaining the highest levels of security. Once again, our thanks go out to all those involved in the transfer, because in cases like this, it is always really an important and challenging logistics operation.”

Minister Naď noted that the MiG-29 Fulcrums represent Slovakia’s huge support for Ukraine in its defence against Russia’s military aggression and in its protection of human lives. “Unlike for our neighbour, for us, the aircraft were made unusable. It was the right thing to do,” Defence Minister Jaroslav Naď emphasised.
