RSK MiG may suspend servicing of Bulgarian MiG-29 aircraft

Director General of RSK MiG Sergey Korotkov sent a letter to the Russian ambassador in Bulgaria, Yuri Isakov, with a warning to the Bulgarian side about the possible suspension of service for MiG-29 aircraft.




“The repair of Bulgarian engines at Polish enterprises will be the basis for the termination of RAC MiG as a developer and manufacturer of MiG-29 aircraft, further fulfillment of contractual obligations to support and operate MiG-29 aircraft of the Bulgarian Air Force. Also, the question of the legality of further use will be raised of these airplanes and the guarantees of the safety of the pilots’s life, ” TASS.

October 22 authorities of Bulgaria and Poland signed an agreement that provides for the repair of Bulgarian MiG-29 aircraft manufactured in Russia. Tomash Semonyak and Nikolai Nenchev, two defense ministers of the two states, signed the document.

“The conditions proposed by RAC MiG are quite beneficial for Bulgaria from an economic point of view. Price parameters almost correspond to each other. Poland is ready to extend engine life for € 1,023 million, RAC MiG - for € 1,050 million. At the same time, for this amount Russia is ready to guarantee Bulgaria a resource in 500 flight hours, but Poland - 350 hours. That is, in the case of work with Poland, the Bulgarian Air Force will have to pay (for the repair of engines) almost twice as often, ”the letter of Korotokov says.

The head of RSK MiG also stressed that "despite the fact that this case is deeply regrettable, based on the centuries-old friendship between Russia and Bulgaria, we continue to hope for the continuation of mutually beneficial cooperation based on international law."

The Bulgarian parliament should ratify an intergovernmental agreement on the repair of engines for MiG-29 aircraft in the coming days.

According to the American edition of Military Belene, the Bulgarian Air Force currently has 12 MiG-29А (Fulcrum-A, NATO classification) fighter jets, and also MiG-4UB (Fulcrum-B, NATO classification) combat-training aircraft.

    It’s not about money and profit, it’s only to bend under NATO partners. The Bulgarians are already all that is possible ... starting from an excessively profitable gas pipe contract and ending with the same vegetables and now fighter jets will be repair. Well then, God judge them

        Currently, the Bulgarian Air Force has 12 MiG-29A fighters (Fulcrum-A, NATO classification), as well as 4 MiG-29UB combat trainers (Fulcrum-B, NATO classification).
        Well duck it while they have - and if they contact the Poles, then soon this will not happen!

The Chinese, Skolkovo ... Everyone just studies and you just put the Bulgarians on airships)) ) and what is not immediately on the space shuttle ?! )))))))

            Ps
            If someone without a license from our manufacturers gets into the equipment and the owner of the equipment allowed them, then such a machine should automatically fly off the Warranty and Maintenance. Just an automatic machine without any can.

        Why all these political disputes? There is a strict rule of exploitation: I violated the warranty service rules; go to Uncle Vasya in the gateway. The Bulgarians concluded an agreement with the Poles, which prevents them from raising prices for spare parts by a certain percentage and not giving a guarantee for spare parts. countries against their own consumers, this is done, but against “Brothers” and Poles it is impossible. Not one arbitration will not go to protect violators of the Guarantee obligations. And why should we have a headache from other people's problems?

          Really. I bought an adapter for a router in the service center. I received an invoice Adapter - 1 pc. Installation - 1 pc. winked The term "lost profit" has not been canceled by anyone. Give a guarantee on your parts? So the pepelats on someone else's gravitsap does not give the correct parameters for the correct operation of the part. Nizya give a guarantee.

          But will the Poles themselves pour the blades or will they resort to the Miga subcontractors? There should be the same sales scheme, together with the installation. Well, so that the Poles do not get the benefit

      Of course, we need to document the "divorce" on the MiG-29 rather, and it’s not exactly an hour after the Polish repair will begin to fall, and the Bulgarians will put forward suits to the MiG RSK! And about the "centuries-old friendship" I would say about the "centuries-old betrayal", the "little brothers" did not know how and do not know how to value the freedom received by the Blood and bayonet of Russian soldiers and, in general, became the "memory of the people"!

    It’s high time that the Bulgarian government (I’m not talking about the people) was in all world wars against Russia, for some reason there are always enemies and Western puppets in power, let the West go and serve them.

      and what good is it? yes, on the one hand - the Bulgarians will punish themselves by chasing MiGs to the ground, but what they will say - Russian planes cannot fly, they are not reliable, which will serve as anti-advertising for Russian aircraft manufacturers and aircraft trading, which will lead to a decrease in revenues for the entire industry and its allies .

            Dear Evgeny Nikolaevich, there are columns in the warranty and maintenance contracts: Failure to comply with the warranty leads to the termination of all obligations on the responsibility of the manufacturer or the organization conducting the maintenance for the reliability and uptime of this product. Example: Megion engine was out of order on a German combine. Specifically, there was no such engine. The customer asked to deliver an engine of the same type but with more power. We refused and called the representative of the company. What was our surprise when a few days later we arrived with a representative of the company and saw a working combine. On a guarantee machine without the knowledge of the company and the service center was replaced by a key unit. Immediately the power was lost for warranty service and for the preferential purchase of spare parts. As a result of a smart decision and a desire to put the unit into operation as soon as possible, significant economic damage was caused. Also, the warranty was protested against It was necessary to pay, because the arbitration took the side of the manufacturer. In cases of violation of the guarantee, the arbitration immediately takes the side of the manufacturer, regardless of the country of manufacture.

    Tired of this news about the stupidity and blindness of the Bulgarians. The people chose the path to complete degradation and collapse, this is their choice. With MiGs or no difference. And our enterprises need to conclude during the contract, where the conditions of service and repair are prescribed only for us, the rest is piracy and counterfeit with all the consequences.

At the same time, it dealt with it openly in person and without any apology. In all world wars, it fought against us and is now in NATO, is preparing for the third world war and Again against. Well, at least they have essentially few troops.
    It’s time for these little brothers to drive in their louse! That's who surely will never be brothers to us. The same is true with MIG agreements. They don’t want, it means breaking all relations. Let the Poles be responsible for everything.

    That special warmth for the supposedly “little brothers” in Bulgaria, which we absorbed with mother’s milk, is in fact little based on. On the contrary, the participation of this country in both world wars in coalitions hostile to Russia suggests that only Orthodoxy unites us, and even then conditionally. In today's world, common faith is not a sufficient basis for allied relations. An example of two World Wars.
    As, however, it was before. They say that when in the XIX century our troops passed through the liberated Bulgarian villages, the soldiers had to buy water from local residents in order to get drunk. The Bulgarians never felt gratitude for their release - and one should not rebuke them for this. You just need to take note: they - such and others will not. And they do not want to be indebted to us, and do not consider themselves obligated to Russia. Russia can have only interests, and not "friends" - parasites.

    We have been instilled with the principle of a large Slavic world for more than three hundred years, but this world was limited exclusively to the Slavs from the former Soviet republics, and even in Ukraine they are trying to change it. I didn’t make a reservation, they’re trying, as the election results and even the answer of Kiev’s grandmother live (“We are waiting for Putin to come and free us from police sons”), says that not everything is as smooth as Parashenko and his clique wants.
    And the Western Slavs have long been no longer Slavs, but gypsies!

    Let them repair sideways. I do not bother at all for the Bulgarians. They chose friends for themselves.

    What a manner! Yesterday Novak persuaded the Protopithecans to buy gas, today they beg ... They don’t want corrupt Bulgarians to work with MiG? Well, Ker with them. Let their pilots crash and cars burn. The rest is whining and humiliation with requests ... Bulgaria joined NATO in 2004. From this time on, Russia had to stop servicing their military equipment long ago. What kind of talk can there be? Minus for MIGA breathable incense ...

      Effective from Gazprom on drunken parties and other mega-successful megaprojects, such as - let’s give someone else a discount and stretch the pipe somewhere, spend as much as the entire export of arms brings. Gazprom then writes off these expenses to the budget for a loss, and the defense industry has to bow to different "centuries-old friends" for each ruble. There is nothing to be done, otherwise we’ll go around the world. Although apparently let's go, the appetites of the Kremlin oligarchs are not diminishing.

    "this case is deeply regretted, based on the centuries-old friendship between Russia and Bulgaria"

    About the "centuries-old friendship" between Russia and Bulgaria was especially touched. There was no war wherever the little brothers were against Russia.

    Brothers are rotten. On the sidelines of History - enough to endure betrayal. Forgetting all is only one Russia.

    And why can suspend? as with a car: if MOT was not done by the dealer, but by the left people of some people in the garage, and it burned down - the guarantee flies .. And it's normal, everyone lives like that. So the Pshek will stick their crooked hands - let them do it further) the plane will crash - the MiG has nothing to do with it.

    It's time to draw us conclusions ...

    It’s time to learn how to profit by drawing conclusions! It makes no sense to feed an impudent overgrown child, especially not your own child! Stop supplying repair kits and spare parts for economic reasons!

    Currently, the Bulgarian Air Force has 12 MiG-29A fighters (Fulcrum-A, NATO classification), as well as 4 MiG-29UB combat trainers (Fulcrum-B, NATO classification).
    Well duck it while they have - and if they contact the Poles, then soon this will not happen!

    This is done on purpose, so that there would be nothing to defend against NATO.
