The German Defense Ministry commented on Kyiv’s requests for the transfer of equipment.

After the decision to re-export Polish MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine, which Germany inherited after unification with the GDR, Germany did not receive requests from the Ukrainian side to transfer other Polish equipment to it, Arne Kollatz, a spokesman for the German Defense Ministry, told reporters.


The Spiegel edition on Thursday reported that the German government, at the request of Poland, allowed the re-export to Ukraine of Polish MiG-29 fighter jets, inherited by the FRG after unification with the GDR. Later, the German Ministry of Defense officially confirmed this information.

As a representative of the German Defense Ministry said at a briefing on Friday, there is no information about Ukraine’s requests for other Polish equipment.

I can’t confirm that there are such requests,” Kollatz said at a briefing on Friday, when asked if the Ukrainian side had approached the German side directly with a request to transfer other Polish military equipment to it in the future.
