Poland donates fighter jets to Ukraine ‘immediately’ to save lives against Russian invasion

The Polish government announced that it has made its fleet of fighter jets available to Ukraine immediately to assist in saving lives against the Russian invasion.

The move was a change from the previous week that saw Poland concerned that the move would escalate a war between the nation, a NATO member, and Russia.

“The authorities of the Republic of Poland, after consultations between the President and the Government, are ready to deploy – immediately and free of charge – all their MIG-29 jets to the Ramstein Air Base and place them at the disposal of the Government of the United States of America,” the Polish government said in a statement.

“At the same time, Poland requests the United States to provide us with used aircraft with corresponding operational capabilities. Poland is ready to immediately establish the conditions of purchase of the planes,” the statement added.

“The Polish Government also requests other NATO Allies – owners of MIG-29 jets – to act in the same vein,” the nation also said.

The new move could be a gamechanger if the U.S. moves forward with it, allowing Ukraine to protect its skies against additional airstrikes.
