“A friend in need is a friend indeed. It doesn't matter how big your country is or what your GDP is, what matters is what kind of heart you have. Many nations today show more courage than half of the G20. Like North Macedonia, which offered support to Ukraine in the form of tanks and planes, we will never forget,” Podoliak tweeted.
Yurii Ihnat, a spokesman for the Air Force Command, said earlier that there was no information about the transfer of four SU-25 jets through North Macedonia to Ukraine.
The media reported on Thursday that North Macedonia donated to Ukraine four Su-25 fighter jets they received from Kyiv during the 2001 conflict.

When asked by the North Macedonian news agency MKD, the North Macedonia Ministry of Defense neither confirmed nor denied the information, noting that the decision to supply arms to Ukraine was "declassified and presented in accordance with transparency".
During the Macedonian conflict in 2001, the country bought four Su-25 fighter jets from Ukraine - three single-seaters and one two-seater. In the spring of 2003 they were decommissioned from the Bundeswehr due to a lack of demand and prepared for sale in 2004.
As previously reported, North Macedonia provided Soviet T-72 tanks to Ukraine, which it planned to phase out over the next few years.
