Poland is ready to transfer MiG-29 fighters to Ukraine, but in a coalition with other countries, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Feb. 18, Polish publication RMF24 reported on Feb. 18.

“Today we can talk about the transfer of our MIGs as part of a broader coalition and we are ready for that. We also inspire others to do so,” Morawiecki said at the Munich Security Conference in Germany.

It is necessary to help Ukraine defend itself in the air, Morawiecki said, adding that the issue is being discussed with the United States.

Earlier, Polish President Andrzej Duda said that Ukrainian forces will need fighter jets to repel threats from Russia. He said that the transfer of Soviet MiG-29 jets to Ukraine would provide support and to some extent balance its forces with the Russian Federation.
