The Slovak politician, after coming to power, intends to stop military assistance to Ukraine

If the opposition party Course - Social Democracy (Smer) wins the elections in Slovakia, its leader, Slovak politician Robert Fico, intends to stop military assistance to Ukraine after coming to power. Previously, he twice headed the government of this Eastern European country.

Fico outlined his position in an interview with journalists from the Associated Press.

If Smer joins the government, we will stop supplying Ukraine with any ammunition or weapons

- the politician said.

In his opinion, no Western supplies can lead to a change in the situation in the Russian-Ukrainian conflict zone in favor of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. More productive, he argues, would be to search for a peaceful option based on a compromise between Kiev and Moscow. To achieve this, Fico believes, Washington and Brussels must put pressure on both Russia and Ukraine.

According to the politician, we must proceed from the fact that Moscow will not give up the regions that have become part of it.

Smer enjoys high support in Slovak society, so this political movement has a good chance of winning the early parliamentary elections scheduled for September 30.

Earlier, the British newspaper The Financial Times also noted that after the elections in Slovakia, there is a high probability that this country will cease supporting the Kyiv regime. The publication says that political figures who sympathize with Russia and oppose Western aid to Kyiv may come to power here.

    Are these “politicians” independent or in “our” pocket?
    I have already lost count of such news over the past 30 years...

        You are inattentive to the word “us”, which is put in quotation marks for a reason.
        But there is no point in listing names, the “suffering” oligarchy behind the hill and the “subsidiaries” of all sorts of gaspro-sper-cash companies are enough

      They never lie so much as during the war,
      after the hunt and before the elections.

    They say everything is correct before the elections. And then they do what the hechemon wants, forgetting about their promises. request This is the European bullshit.

    Yes, they probably don’t have anything left to spare, they were very active in helping Ukraine, so this is just a beautiful political move...

    Zelya generally promised to end the war. But as they say: “Promising does not mean marrying.” All this election promise is worthless. There is no need to write this nonsense.

    Would you have heard, Fico, how Zelensky sang before the elections?!!!
    By the way, in an amicable way, these... candidates should not be limited only to “political responsibility” for unfulfilled promises before the elections.
    If I were a king... (tm)
    Each candidate's promises would be formalized in a legal document.
    So that he knows that every “empty” word is worth several years of freedom.
    It might make them less eloquent... and less thoughtful.
    And there would be fewer people willing.

    But who will allow you to come to power with such and such ideas? laughing

    For Robert Fico and other people in politics, these are nothing more than election slogans.
    Populist promises.
    They are all under the Washington Regional Committee and will only do what their boss tells them to do.
    Otherwise, they will be removed from office or it will be like with Robert F. Kennedy.
    Eliminated or the accident will be faked
