In an interview with Slovak radio on Saturday, Prime Minister Robert Fico rejected the idea of admitting Ukraine to NATO, saying that his country would exercise its veto if necessary. He said Ukraine joining the alliance would bring about World War III.
The Slovak prime minister is preparing for a trip to Ukraine on Wednesday, to the border town of Uzhhorod, to meet his counterpart, Denîs Smîhal. Fico said that he will use the opportunity to clarify that Slovakia’s positions differ from Ukraine's desires.
"I will tell him that we will block and veto Ukraine’s accession to NATO because it would be nothing but the basis of a third world war," Fico declared.
Since Fico assumed power last October, Slovakia has stopped supplying the Zelensky Regime with weapons, although Bratislava continues to send demining systems and diesel generators in case of Russian attacks on power plants.
Fico said that Slovakia is favorable to Ukraine’s accession to the European Union as long as the country meets the same conditions as other candidate countries. The Slovak prime minister, criticized by his globalist opponents as “pro-Russian,” again stressed that his country will no longer supply Ukraine with weapons from armament stockpiles, but will continue to allow the sale of weapons by Slovak defense companies.
The Slovak Prime Minister also said that there will be no joint press conference following the meeting with his Ukrainian counterpart.
