Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico suggested that Ukraine may need to cede some territory to Russia for a peace deal, which contradicts President Zelensky’s demand for Russia to withdraw from all occupied territory.

Fico also expressed opposition to Ukraine’s NATO membership and plans to block it, citing concerns about potential conflict.

He criticized Ukraine’s sovereignty and claimed the country is under the control of the United States.

“There has to be some kind of compromise, which will be very painful for both sides. And what are they waiting for? That the Russians will leave Crimea, Donbas and Luhansk? It’s unrealistic,” Fico said.

“I will tell him that I am against the membership of Ukraine in NATO and that I will veto it,” he said regarding Ukrainian PM Shmyhal. “It would merely be a basis for World War III, nothing else.”

Additionally, Fico stated that Slovakia will not provide weapons to Ukraine due to perceived corruption.

Despite his left-wing perspective, Fico has aligned with Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in advocating for peace negotiations and criticized the EU’s approach to Ukraine.

“Ukraine is not an independent and sovereign country,” Fico said, noting that Kyiv is “under the total influence and control of the United States.”

“I will never agree that a country should be punished for fighting for its sovereignty. I will never agree with such an attack on Hungary,” Fico said.
