As one of the smallest militaries in NATO, Slovakia is playing an important part in providing Ukraine with the types of armament it requires to hold off Russia’s invasion.
According to oryx, Slovakia is currently considering donating its entire fleet of MiG-29 fighter aircraft to Ukraine. The delivery of MiG-29s to Ukraine would be a huge morale boost to both its citizens and military, and finally satisfy Ukraine’s most vocal request ever since Russia began its invasion on February 24.
