Mykhailo Podoliak, adviser to the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, confirmed on Saturday that North Macedonia has transferred four Su-25 attack aircraft to Ukraine.

This was reported by European truth.

“A friend in need is really a friend. It doesn’t matter how big your country is or how big your GDP is, what matters is what kind of heart you have. Many nations are showing more courage today than half of the G20. Like North Macedonia, which has offered Ukraine support in the form of tanks and planes. We will never forget that,” Podoliak tweeted.

Yurii Ihnat, spokesman for the Air Force Command, had previously said that they had no information on North Macedonia’s transfer of four SU-25 jets to Ukraine.

The media reported on Thursday that North Macedonia donated four Su-25 attack aircraftwhich they received from Kiev during the 2001 conflict, to Ukraine.

When asked about this by the North Macedonian news outlet MKD, the North Macedonian Ministry of Defense neither confirmed nor denied the information, noting that the decision to supply Ukraine with weapons would be “declassified and presented in accordance with transparency”.

During the conflict in Macedonia in 2001, the country bought four Su-25 attack aircraft from Ukraine – three single-seaters and one two-seater. In the spring of 2003, they were excluded from the Armed Forces due to lack of need, and in 2004 they were prepared for sale.

As previously reported, North Macedonia has supplied Ukraine with Soviet T-72 tanks which it had planned to shut down in the next few years.
