Poland delivered 10 MiG-29 combat aircraft to Ukraine, promised to be transferred as part of military aid.

As Rubryka reports with reference to Defense24.pl journalist Jakub Palowski on Twitter, this was announced by the Minister of Defense of Poland, Mariusz Błaszczak.

The journalist quoted the Polish official stating that Poland had supplied Ukraine with 10 MiG29 fighters.

At the same time, Blaszczak did not reveal the details of the delivery of the planes to Ukraine.

For reference:

It should be noted that in mid-March, the President of Poland, Andrzej Duda, announced the transfer of the MiG-29 to Ukraine. It was revealed that an initial batch of aircraft would be delivered at the start of April, though the exact quantity was not specified.

Moreover, Germany allowed Poland to transfer five MIG-29s from the GDR's stocks in April.
