North Macedonia officially confirmed that four Su-25 fighters were handed over to Ukraine. According to the report by Janes, Minister of Defence of North Macedonia, Slavjanka Petrovska confirmed the transfer of fighters to Kiev on 14 March.
Three single-seat Su-25s and one double seat Su-25UB were sent to Ukraine. However, all of them are reportedly unsuitable for performing combat missions. The aircraft were not used since 2004.
Petrovska said that equipment delivered to Ukraine so far consists of “infantry weapons and ammunition, artillery equipment, MBTs [main battle tanks], Sukhoi aircraft, anti-armour and anti-aircraft weapon systems, and equipment and ammunition for use by the military aviation”.
Petrovska did note that the donations made so far were not part of the formation of the Army of the Republic of North Macedonia (ARSM).
Last summer, media reported that North Macedonia donated four Su-25 attack aircraft to Ukraine, which Skopje bought from Kiev in 2001 for €4 million. Skopje needed the aircraft during the conflict with Albanian separatists from the National Liberation Army.
On March 14, Skopje approved a new package of military aid intended to support Ukraine, but no details on the type or quantity of equipment.
On March 15, North Macedonian media outlets reported that the government is reportedly assessing the possibility of transfer of 12 Mi-24 ‘Hind’ attack helicopters that Ukraine has requested.

so now north macedonia doesn’t have an airforce no more ?
Hopefully the Albanians are taking note.
Four of these wreckages? Good, send helos to zelensky the drugged clown.
tyres still pumped so not that bad condition. Tyres go flat after a few months non use. So must have been used more recently than 2004, like in the last 4 months.
I think this picture doesn’t show the actual condition of the planes. It’s an old picture I think.
Or maybe it’s the only manutention they got.
Are the Ukrainians getting read to bring down another Malaysian airliner?
North Macedonia is just another US puppet government who are owned by the Criminal’s in D/C
I live in Macedonia and I am sick and tired of this Communist government that is filled with Albanians, the government of Zoran Zaev sold the name of the Republic Of Macedonia to the Greeks and made it North Macedonia, and now they are selling the language to the Bulgarians, which they say there is no Macedonians in Macedonia and the language Macedonian is not real that all we talk is Bulgarian, and that from before 1945 there was no Macedonian language talked in Macedonia, yes so Greeks took the name, Bulgarian Nazist take the language and Albanians the land fucking government full of Albanians. First, we have no 12 Mi-24 Hind helicopters to give, we have 2 of them, I am ashamed to be in NATO. We have nothing to give, we have nearly 7000 men in the army all of which are paid professional army. We have some 15 tanks or so. All politicians here are no-brainers, corruption to the sky.
Who sold what and to whom?
The name of macedonia has been Greek since 800BC,so how can you say “Zoran Zaev sold the name of the Republic Of Macedonia to the Greeks”
You are the ones who steal names and history,you are slavs that came around 600AD that have nothing to do with Alexander.
See your former president admit that:
Your language is 90% bulgarian,so stop lying.
slavs only occupied greece, north macedonia was a borderland between slavs albanians and greeks (Byzantines)
You have no idea what you are talking about.
Some slavic tribes came to Greece after invitation from byzantine emperors because the lands were sparsely populated due to plague and wars. These small tribes were know as sklavenoi. They stayed in Greece,initialy isolated. Then they started to mix with locals and very soon were lost as separate entitis due to assimilation. Never,ever a slavic STATE(capitals for emphasis because tribes are different that states) occupied Greece,never. Short term occupation meant nothing because Greeks were not killed,nor deported.
The name Makedonia is Greek,has been used since ancient times,before slavic arrival and means “someone who is of big/tall body”.
Thus it is completely idiotic for someone to claim that 1)”Zaev sold the name of the Republic Of Macedonia to the Greeks” 2)”Greeks took the name”
Greeks didn’t take anything, it was theirs since ancient times.
Since Alexander’s time, the area around Skopje was 1)inhabited by Greeks/paeonians. 2)NOT called macedonia,but rather Paeonia.
Besides, Stravo(the ancient geographer)clearly states that “εστιν ουν Ελλάς και η Mακεδονία”, meaning Macedonia is Greece
All this Macedonia/north macedonia bullshit was created by communist Yugoslav Tito for geopolitical reasons,everyone who is of fair judgement aknowledges that, as he aknowledges that all these stupid festivals with skopjans dressed as ancient greeks shows deep ignorance and inferiority complex.
macedonia IS ITS OWN COUNTRY
Would have been put to better use if donated to Serbia as museum piece or otherwise
They can throw them at the Russians, they might hit one… or maybe two…LOL
Good, very soon these planes will become just pieces of junk.
