Bulgaria needs to follow the example of Poland and Slovakia and transfer its MiG-29 fighters to Ukraine.

This was reported by RBC-Ukraine with reference to a statement by Advisor to the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Yuriy Sak, which is quoted by BNT Novosti.

He said that this would strengthen the Ukrainian Air Force. Since the first request for weapons by Ukraine in April last year, Bulgaria has repeatedly stated that it cannot provide its aircraft, the flight life of which is due to a lack of spare parts.

“Every day we kill between 900 and 1,000 Russian soldiers. They don’t care about the lives of their soldiers. They use them as cannon fodder. Of course, this is a war, and we also have losses, but they are much smaller. And this is our tactic – we maximize losses of the enemy while minimizing our own,” the adviser to the minister said.

Due to continuous shelling, Ukraine needs to strengthen its air defense. Ukraine thanks Poland and Slovakia, who decided at this stage to send 15 MiG-29 aircraft with spare parts.

“These aircraft will certainly be effectively used by our Air Force. They will improve the capabilities of our Air Force, and we call on all other countries, including Bulgaria, to also consider strengthening the Ukrainian Air Force by sending us the aircraft that you have,” he said. Sak.

It is known that in Bulgaria there are at least 12 MiG-29 fighters.
