The “green light” was given by the United States for the supply of fighter jets to Kiev by NATO countries. At the same time, the United States is even considering the possibility of updating Poland’s fighter fleet if it sends its aircraft to Ukraine.
This was stated by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, according to CNBS:
“In fact, we are now talking with our Polish friends about what we can do to meet their needs, if they really decide to supply these fighters to the Ukrainians.”
However, after the news broke, Poland said it had no plans to send fighter jets to Ukraine. The decision was announced on February 6 by the office of the Polish Prime Minister on the official Twitter microblog:
Soviet-made MIG-29 aircraft in service with the Polish Air Force will not be sent to Ukraine. Poland will not send its fighters to Ukraine and will not give permission for the use of its airfields.
The report also notes that the Polish authorities “provide significant assistance in other areas.” In support of the statement, the tweet contains a link to information from the General Staff of the Polish Armed Forces. It says that all Polish MIG-29 aircraft are at their bases and are marked with the sign of the Polish Air Force in the colors of the red and white state flag, reports bb.lv
