Slovakia is ready to transfer Soviet-made MiG-29 fighter jets and battle tanks to Ukraine, Slovak Prime Minister Eduard Heger said in an interview with the Czech channel ST24 on July 3.
“I don’t want to talk about it in detail, because Ukraine asked us not to go into detail,” Heger said. Czech Prime Minister Peter Fiala gave an interview alongside him.
The leaders of the two countries announced that from September, the Czech Republic will help Slovakia protect its airspace.
“I don’t see any problem there, the government will certainly approve it,” Fiala said during the interview.
Heger announcement is yet another attempt to support Kiev forces in the face of the Russian military that has been conducting a special operation in Ukraine since late February.
The Slovak Air Force has nine MiG-29AS fighter jets and a single MiG-29UBS trainer which it inherited from the Czechoslovak Air Force. The fighter jets were upgraded by Russia’s RAC MiG and Western firms, starting from 2005.
The MiG-29s were equipped with navigation and communications systems from Rockwell Collins, an identification friend or foe system from BAE Systems, new glass cockpit features multi-function LC displays and digital processors and also fitted to be integrate with Western equipment in the future. However, the armaments of the fighter jets remain unchanged.
Slovakia ordered 14 F-16V fighter jets from the United States in 2018 to replace its MiG-29s. The first planes were expected to arrive this year and the shipment to be completed in the next year, but the delivery is now assumed to take place in 2024.
In April, Slovakia sent its only S-300PMU long-range air-defense system to Ukraine. The system was reportedly destroyed just days after the delivery as a result of a Russian missile strike on the Dnipro International Airport.
While the Ukrainian Air Force is still operating on a low-scale, it does not appear to be able to conduct any meaningful operations. The supply of additional fighter jets from Slovakia will not likely pose any challenge to Russian air supremacy over Ukraine.

Russia can easily deal with any Soviet type planes. These wont last long
Wow. Does this mean Ukraine is now going to win this war?
not the war, but rather some new dead pilots

More target practice, RUssia wanted to demilitarize UA but ended doing it to europe lol
Dead on Alex. Ukraine is like the walls of Troy and the alliance will smash its armies up against it for 20 years. Meanwhile the western world cannot recruit soldiers into their professional armies (recruitment down 40%). Western corporate conglomerates are paying through the nose for labor and stock prices have no where to go but down and inflation has no where to go but up. I have no idea what the Russian objectives are in Ukraine but sitting back and relaxing while your enemy destroys himself seems like a pretty good plan to me.
Then why ( and how) does ukraine still have an air force?
And it can’t come any sooner!!! What all true European patriots have to do is sit tight and patiently wait when Russia and all her allies really go to war against her true enemies: the USSA and Bruxelles. Israel will be taken care of by Iran. It’ll be a bloody killing spree of all the Soros-financed elitists, LBGTQ fanatics, the mainstream media, big business etc. etc….all these vile reptiles will have no place to hide and will perish as destiny wishes. Long live Z, Akhmat Sila!!!!!
This is getting ridiculous -we are your enemy but we still want your gas etc- If somebody stabs you in the back helping to kill your relatives -son/daughter baby do you say -yes friend that’s okay or do you annihilate them where they are standing -it is becoming increasingly hard for me to read those two-faced countries actions – I don’t forgive easily –nor forget .
Like Germany accusing Russia of delaying blue-gas. Russia is such a patient country, only reason they have 5000 Nukes and nobody fears them.
What’s Slovakia? Sounds delicious.
Not ordinary citizens suport our pupet governote.Most citizens hate this pro US morons.But we are small country.Eu destroy our economy.Like in others eu countries
No worries YZF. I have nothing against a common man wherever he makes his home. If he lives a good life created by his own hands he is my brother whenever I meet him. The leaders of your country sound like the leaders of mine, both in love with their own images while being physical weaklings and mental cowards. When China and Russia figure out we hate our leaders as much as they do things should get better for us rather quickly.
Slovakia should change its flag, it looks like Russian.
Slovakia has one of the most beautiful flags and distinctive in the world !
Problem is they represent lgbtq which in itself is divine treason,they will be dealt with soon!
It’s an insult eu nazi trys to hijack the Russian orthodox cross,Russia should destroy its gvmnt too!
Sounds like a type of Polish sausage Zelensky uses as a butt plug now all his Azov boyfriends are dead or crippled!
A nation that manifests in very cheap whores for western protesty wanks to marry!
Czechoslovakia divided into Slovakia and Czech, mate!
Slovakia has supplied the S-300 air defence system to Ukraine – it is not a surprise to anyone… it was a matter of time and Ukraine has more military pilots than jets.
But again, Ukraine lost their jets a few weeks in the war…those few jets wouldn’t change much. That is just a fact and Ukraine is not even using Turk-isis-stan drones as those are shit and useless 20 to 30 sorties a day only – Russia jets do over 200 Sorties a day. Russia also moving slowly – so no more BS fake news.
Okay, I need to know, (This is the end of the world as we know it), replied to my comment I’m guessing as UkHomoSap and Yuri replied back to him…
I can’t see (This is the end of the world as we know it) comment – Is SF deleting comments or people deleting their accounts and making another one?
If it is SF – dude just stop, I want to know what that person said – it doesn’t matter if it was BS or fake shit. Don’t delete comments.
Why doesn’t Russia have its allies help supply them?
Russia has no need to be supplied with fighter aircraft by allies.
why do you pay Leroy to sodomize you w roubles?
when crossing border slikvik may enjoy kinzhal funeral
Good the Russia pilots need all the combat experience they can get before the big show kicks off. I wonder how much it costs a Ukrainian military pilot to get life insurance these days? A whole bunch more Ghosts of Kiev will be created as these jets are shot down by superior and newer Russia jets. I don’t know if these Ukrainian pilots are brave or insane but I wouldn’t want to dogfight an SU57 in a MIG29 for all the tea in China.
Your right even the old SU 27 is much superior .
Are these eastern European govts wanting to encourage long-term hostility between Russia and themselves. The govts are clearly not acting with the best interests of their populations in mind.
Slovakian government is neonacist and ultraliberal, slaves of USA and EU, traitors of Slovakian people.
Neo-nazist and ultra-liberal is a contradiction, which one is it?
Fun new targets for the Russians.
I am ashamed of our Slovakian govt.
I just want to tell the world, that among ordinary people ( except in capital ) there prevail pro-Russian and anti-western ( USA, EU, NATO ) narrative.
We are strictly against free ( !!! ) military supplies to Ukraine and fuelling of war.
Simply – our traitorous Slovak government is not ( the one with ) Slovak people. We long to get rid of them !
Make them freeze Russia. Sell oil and natural gas to friendly nations that are not supplying Ukraine with weapons.
All this weapon deliverys of new stuff might just be a pretext to send in nato soldiers in urkainian uniforms.
They don’t have the balls to fight a real military,if anything just about all were slaughtered by heteros!
Typo nation run by slav wannabe gay whores.
There are only a few airfields left. It’s rather stupid what they’re doing.
This has more to do with getting rid of old Soviet war equipment and writing new contracts for Lockheed, Boeing, General Dynamics, and Raytheon.
Apart from Russians and Serbians all Slavs are scum.
Only scum here is a braindead Jim. Otherwise, you should at least elaborate your very stupid remark. Idiot!
