Serbia May Buy Russian MiG Fighter Jets, Defense Minister Says

Serbia is considering the purchase of Russian-made MIG-29 combat aircraft and radars, Defense Minister Aleksandar Vucic said.

“We are considering such a purchase for financial reasons,” even as Serbia has “excellent relations” with NATO, Vucic told reporters during a visit to neighboring Croatia.

The Blic newspaper reported last week that the Balkan country may spend $150 million on six new jets to improve its air defense.
