The Prime Minister of Slovakia confirmed his intention to help Ukraine with everything except weapons.

Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico confirmed to the Commander-in-Chief of NATO Allied Forces in Europe, Christopher Cavoli, the republic’s intention to help Ukraine in all possible ways, except by sending weapons.

“Prime Minister of Slovakia Robert Fico, at a meeting with the Commander-in-Chief of NATO Allied Forces in Europe, Christopher Cavoli, emphasized that Slovakia is interested in supporting Ukraine by all available means, but repeated his clear position not to send lethal weapons to Ukraine,” the press service of the government reported.

According to the publication, the meeting took place on Tuesday in the government of Slovakia. During the negotiations, Fico drew attention to the importance of providing Slovakia with air defense.


Previously, the Slovak government decided to focus on humanitarian assistance and no longer send weapons to Ukraine. The Cabinet of Ministers, headed by Robert Fico, did not approve the proposal of the previous government, which concerned sending the next package of military assistance to Ukraine for 40.3 million euros. It was mainly about ammunition. This package of military assistance was supposed to be the 14th from Slovakia; since February 2022, the republic has sent Ukraine weapons, ammunition and equipment worth 671 million euros.
