ISTANBUL – Poland has not sent any fighter aircraft to Ukraine to support its defense against Russia, said Maciej Wasik, a deputy interior minister.
“A decision on this type of aid should be taken at the NATO level, and it should be uniform for all NATO countries. It should not be the case that one or another country is helping on its own,” he added.
“The Polish position has not changed,” he clarified. “We have not sent any fighter planes to Ukraine.”
Wasik’s remarks came after Ukraine’s Air Force Command said that it was receiving fighter jets from foreign partners including 28 MiG-29s from Poland.
The Wall Street Journal had also reported that the US had negotiated with Warsaw on Poland’s supply of Soviet-era warplanes to Ukraine in return for F-16 jet fighters.
