The West was worried that Slovakia "in one fell swoop" could become an ally of Russia

Slovakia "in one fell swoop" can become a new ally of Russia. This conclusion was made by the British The Guardian, reporting on the EU's fear of getting "another Orban" and "Putin's fan" in its ranks.

We are talking about the parliamentary elections to be held in the country on 30 September. And if the opinion polls are confirmed, it will mean the return of ex-premier Robert Fico.

He praises Moscow and focuses on Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban
- wrote the newspaper.

The publication noted that Slovakia plays a much greater role in the international arena than is imagined in Europe. In February last year, the country supported Ukraine. If Fico is elected, she could turn around and side with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In the future as the country's prime minister from 2006 to 2011, and after from 2012 to 2018, Fico criticized the West, the publication recalled. It called policy "a copy of Orban", who during his time in opposition moved even more to the right.

He condemned "Ukrainian fascists" and opposed the decision of the Slovak government to supply Ukraine with all the weapons it has.
the paper concluded.

Earlier it was reported that Hungary ceases to be in proud European loneliness regarding the position on the Ukrainian-Russian conflict. It is gradually being joined by neighbor Slovakia, not least thanks to the conservative leftist Robert Fico.

    Does the Russian Federation need allies for one day, depending on the wind and weather conditions?

      Replica. Allies are ALWAYS needed, and any, even for a day, even for eternity. They need to be used, which our people at the top don’t do.

        Well, what horrible allies, I think we still do not need.

    Let him not be allowed to power. And if they allow it, they will immediately rein it in, and he will sing to the general anti-Russian tune.

      You are mistaken, he has already shown himself before. At least three kopecks, but he’ll knock it off.

    This is all the former Austria-Hungary, followed by the Vatican. Czechs and Slovaks were Catholics, now mostly non-believers. This is the latent struggle of the Vatican with the impudent Saxons for the territory of the former Austria-Hungary and the heritage of the Habsburgs, including Spain, Portugal (taking into account their influence in the former colonies in Latin America) ... The Vatican looks at the weakened hegemon and hopes for a new redivision of the world.

    Well, besides, Slovakia has a slightly larger border with Galicia than Hungary. Romania, by the way, is also part of Austria-Hungary, and also a Catholic country, with corresponding internal political contradictions, but it is much more difficult for the Vatican to win it back from the impudent Saxons
