Ukraine war: Poland wants to hand over warplanes to US

Status: 08.03.2022 21:57

Poland is ready to hand over its MiG-29 fighter jets to the United States. The jets are to land at the Rammstein Air Force Base. They can be made available to Ukraine via this diversion.

Poland is ready to supply its Mig-29 fighter jets to the United States, which will be available to Ukraine. Poland’s foreign ministry says Poland is ready to supply Soviet warplanes to a U.S. base in Rammstein and make them available to the United States “for free and immediately.”

According to reports, the machines will then be delivered to Ukraine, whose pilots are trained in this type. The Polish government urged other NATO allies to act in the same direction. However, Warsaw has repeatedly denied direct supply to the neighboring country.

Apparent reaction to blink

At the same time, the United States has been asked to provide the country with aircraft suitable for use. According to Poland, the offer is in response to recent statements by US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken during his visit to Europe. “We are currently seriously considering the issue of aircraft that Poland can supply to Ukraine,” Blinken said in Moldova. U.S. lawmakers pressed Biden’s government to facilitate the transfer of flights from Poland to the United States.

The US State Department is surprised by this opportunity

US Secretary of State Victoria Nuland told a U.S. Senate hearing that Poland’s decision had not been discussed with the Washington government in advance. “I look forward to returning to my desk once this investigation is complete and seeing how we respond to this plan to provide us with flights.”

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky urged the United States to help purchase more warplanes.

Federal Foreign Minister Annalena Barbach was reluctant to consider providing Polish MiG-29 aircraft to Ukraine. Barbach, who was interviewed by “Built-TV”, said he wanted to make sure the war did not spread to NATO borders.

Even arms distribution should not be given any stereotype that “we are participating in the war,” the green politician said.
