Ukraine is getting a total of 70 fighter jets from Bulgaria, Poland and Slovakia. Russia already had failed to establish air superiority. Germany is sending antiaircraft missiles. This is significant military hardware.
The economic sanctions triggered a bank run in Russia and have given Russia about a 30% hit to its economy. Inflation in Russia has been calculated by some at 68% per year and Russia had to more than double interest rates to 20%.
Bulgaria will give Ukraine 14 Su-25 & 16 MiG-29 fighter jets, Poland will give it 28 MiG-29s & Slovakia will give it 12 MiG-29s. More importantly–given Russian missile strikes on military airbases–they can fly missions over Ukraine from Poland https://t.co/MKQZ4lAFUe
