Serbia receives four MiG-29 fighter jets
- February 26, 2019
Belarus has delivered four MiG-29 fighter jets to Serbia.
Serbian Defence Minister Aleksandar Vulin attended the ceremony at an air force base in Belarus, saying that with the delivery “our air force has never been stronger in decades.”
With delivery of the four jets, Serbia have 14 operational MiG-29s.
Serbia formally wants to join the European Union, but under political and propaganda pressure from Moscow, Belgrade has steadily slid toward the Kremlin and its goal of trying to keep the countries in the region out of NATO.
