The Kremlin has accused NATO of becoming increasingly involved in the conflict in Ukraine by announcing the advance supply by Poland and Slovakia of MiG-29 fighters to Ukraine.

“This is another example of how various member countries of the Atlantic Alliance are increasing their level of direct involvement in the conflict,” Dmitri Peskov, the presidential spokesman, said in his daily telephone press conference.

Peskov warned that within the framework of the Russian military campaign in Ukraine “all this military equipment must be destroyed”.
