Nikolenko said, “There can be no compromise on territorial integrity. Neither Ukraine, nor Slovakia, nor any other country.
“Ukraine and its partners are making efforts to remove Russians from Crimea, Donbas and Luhansk, so that they do not go further, in particular to Košice [and] Pryašiv [Prešov, both cities in eastern Slovakia] and other Slovak regions.”
The spokesperson added, “Let’s speak openly: without security in Ukraine, there will be no security in Slovakia or Europe as a whole. We must, together, approach the Ukrainian victory.”
Fico and Shmyhal are to meet on Wednesday, the Slovakian Prime Minister said that Kyiv is under “the total influence” of the White House and that the US is “one of the most corrupt nations in the world.”
The Slovakian Prime Minister added, “I will confirm that he will not receive any weapons from the Slovak government.”
