Andrzej Duda told journalists after meeting the Czech President that the decision was first at the level of the highest state authorities, and then the government adopted a special resolution in this matter.
This has happened because the MiG-29 fighters are still active planes in the defense of Poland.
The president announced that we have a dozen or so more of them – they were taken over in the early 90s from the GDR.
Andrzej Duda reminded that their place will be taken by planes from South Korea – FA50, whose first copies will appear in Poland this year, and then – F -35 fighters ordered in the United States.
