WARSAW — RSK MiG, manufacturer of the MiG-29 fighter jet, has sent a letter of protest to the Bulgarian Parliament's Defense Committee after Bulgarian Defense Minister Nikolay Nenchev and his Polish counterpart, Tomasz Siemoniak, signed a letter of intent under which six of Bulgaria’s MiG-29s would be modernized and serviced by Polish state-run plants, reports local news agency Novinite.
In the letter, the Russian manufacturer warned Sofia against performing aircraft maintenance activities in Poland, as RSK MiG claims that Polish defense companies are not officially authorized to repair MiG fighter jets.
Nenchev has responded to the claim by saying that Poland’s offer was "two times lower" than what Sofia was offered by Russia. By signing a contract with Polish defense companies, Bulgaria will save up to 24 million leva (US $14 million), Nenchev said.
