“The authorities of the Republic of Poland, after consultation between the President and the Government, are ready to deploy – immediately and free of charge – all MIG aircraft 29 at Rammstein Air Base and make them available to the Government of the United States of America.
At the same time, Poland is asking the United States to provide us with second-hand aircraft with similar operational capabilities. “Poland is ready to immediately determine the terms of the purchase of the aircraft.
