The government of North Macedonia announced that it has decided to donate helicopters to Ukraine.
Defense Minister Slavianka Petrovska had earlier announced that based on a proposal from the ministry, at the meeting held on March 29, a decision would be taken to donate 12 Soviet-made Mi-24 combat helicopters to Ukraine.
In an interview over the weekend, Petrovska noted that the vast majority of the Mi-24 combat helicopters produced in 1984 and purchased from Ukraine in 2001 have been out of service for more than eight years due to a lack of spare parts.
According to Radio Free Europe news, Petrovska stated that the donation of the MI-24 helicopter would not harm the country’s security.
North Macedonia delivered Soviet-era tanks to Ukraine in the middle of last year.
The adviser to the Ukrainian president thanked Skopje for the military assistance it had sent to his country, and said that Ukraine would “never forget” this.
After this delivery, Russia stated that it viewed North Macedonia’s donation of the T-72 tanks as a “fatal mistake” that would allow the Kiev regime to continue its criminal activities.
