Heger said his government wanted to stop using MiG-29 fighter jets, as it was deemed not to have Soviet technological support without ties to Russia. 

Slovakia decided to abandon Soviet-made weapons and began negotiating over U.S. F-16 fighter jets, referring to the U.S.-made fighter jets slovakia was supposed to receive in 2024. 

Slovakia is in very intensive negotiations with partners about who will protect the country's airspace. After that, Slovakia considered sending weapons and MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine.

Experts have questioned whether Slovakia will be able to deliver some MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine if it receives certain assurances from Western partners.

Slovakia has 12 MiG-29 fighter jets in service, but the latest circumstances raise a number of questions. Moreover, it is still unknown how Ukraine can use Slovakian MiG-29 fighters, as most of ukraine's air bases have been decommissioned.

If Slovakia does deliver some miG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine, will it take off from neighboring Ukraine? Russia's defense ministry said it would destroy all weapons and fighter jets sent from NATO allies as well as the west. 

Earlier, it said by the Russian defense ministry, the Russian military destroyed an S-300 air defense system belonging to Ukraine that had just arrived in the country, allegedly sent from a NATO ally.
