FT: Slovak elections could weaken support for Ukraine in the West – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

The publication notes that several populist and far-right parties in Slovakia have “good chances” of joining the government that will be formed following the results of the early elections. “This raises fears that another member of the European Union and NATO will begin to support Kiev significantly less,” RIA Novosti publication quotes.

Polls show Smer, former Prime Minister Robert Fico’s party, leading the way, highlighting the high price Slovaks are paying for aid to Ukraine.

According to Dominica Hajdu, an employee of the Slovak think tank Globsec, the ruling party is against providing aid to kyiv. Consequently, the elections in Slovakia “could greatly influence the unity of the European Union and NATO on the issue of support for Ukraine,” the expert stressed.

Robert Fico is the former Prime Minister of Slovakia. He has repeatedly stated that continuing to arm Ukraine only prolongs the conflict and does not contribute to its resolution. Fico stressed that the new Slovak government formed after the elections must reconsider the approach to the Ukrainian conflict which, as the politician is convinced, was unleashed with the aim of weakening Moscow.

According to journalist John Kaempfner, after the parliamentary elections in September, Slovakia could become “in one fell swoop” a new ally of Russia thanks to the return of Fico, who praises Moscow and takes the example of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
