Warsaw says it cannot send Soviet-made MiG-29 fighter jets to Kiev on its own. Poland is not a party to this war. We want peace as soon as possible. And NATO is also not a party to this war,” Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki told reporters, reiterating his call for the US-led NATO alliance to decide on the potential delivery of Warsaw-owned aircraft to Ukraine. The remarks took place in Vienna, as he was meeting Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer on Wednesday. The delivery must be approved by the whole bloc, and Washington in particular, Morawiecki insisted.
“Such a serious decision as the handover of planes must be a unanimous and unambiguous decision made by the entire NATO. Today, this decision is in the hands of NATO, in the hands of the Americans,” the PM stated. The potential suppliers and Washington have been actively shifting responsibility for such a decision over the danger of a direct confrontation with Russia. The US led-alliance has also consistently rejected the idea to send in troops, refusing Kiev’s repeated calls for NATO to establish a no-fly zone over the country.
