OREANDA-NEWS. Polish President Andrzej Duda has ruled out sending Polish fighter jets to Ukraine as the move could draw NATO into the conflict. This is reported by the publication Euractiv.

“We are not sending any aircraft to Ukraine, because this will lead to military intervention in the Ukrainian conflict. We do not want to be drawn into this conflict. NATO is not a party to this conflict,” Duda said in a joint speech with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg.

Duda also dismissed the suggestion that several countries, including Poland, have supplied MiG-29 fighters to Ukraine. This was stated by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and the Air Force of Ukraine.

On March 2, the official representative of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Major General Igor Konashenkov, spoke about the progress of the special military operation in Ukraine - the Russian army took Kherson.

“The units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation established control over the settlements of Tokmak and Vasilyevka, where Ukrainian servicemen refused to resist and voluntarily laid down their arms. After they sign receipts refusing to participate in hostilities, the Ukrainian servicemen will return to their families. Russian units of the Armed Forces have taken full control of the regional center of Kherson," Konashenkov said.

Earlier, the Russian Ministry of Defense announced a complete blocking of the exit of Ukrainian troops to the Sea of ​​Azov.
