Two Slovaks join Ukraine mission Crimea monitors denied entry A PAIR of Slovak military officials were among those blocked from entering Crimea as part of an observer mission to neighbouring Ukraine, as Prime Minister Robert Fico and other top Slovak officials call for a diplomatic solution to the biggest crisis between Russia and the West since the end of the Cold War. 6 Mar 2014 Beata Balogová More from Politics & Society
Crimea a turning point, Polish ambassador says IN THE longer term, we have to rethink the vulnerabilities in our relations with Russia, including energy and financial dependencies, said Polish Ambassador to Slovakia Tomasz Chłoń in an interview with The Slovak Spectator. “What happened can be a turning point in how we construct the security and defence of the European Union,” Chłoń said. 6 Mar 2014 Beata Balogová More from Politics & Society
Pozývací list Slovak Word of the Week WHEN Vasil Biľak passed away on February 6, no one could have suspected that just a month later history would repeat itself and someone else would get the idea to address an invitation letter (pozývací list) to the Kremlin. 6 Mar 2014 Lukáš Fila More from Opinion
Race tightens; Fico has a closer rival THOUGH billboards that have been imposing images of presidential candidates on the population for several months suggest otherwise, the official campaigning for the March 15 presidential vote officially started on February 28. Observers say this could still very much shuffle the deck, with the forthcoming televised debates remaining a major factor yet to come. The race has tightened up, as suggested by the pre-election polls, which no longer show the victory of Prime Minister Robert Fico as unshakeable, as it appeared to be two months ago. One poll has shown businessman and philanthropist Andrej Kiska climbing within 3 percent of Fico, whose popularity has been oscillating around 37 percent, on average. Pundits noted that Kiska might be benefiting from his still blank political slate. 3 Mar 2014 Beata Balogová More from Politics & Society
Kňažko: 'I am now unlikely to change' THE VOTERS would not be buying a “pig in a poke” if they vote for him, suggests Milan Kňažko, a leading personality of the Velvet Revolution who has been active in post-revolutionary public and political life, and now is running for the presidency in the March 15 election. “I am now unlikely to change,” he told The Slovak Spectator. 3 Mar 2014 Beata Balogová More from Politics & Society
Kiska: 'I am not one of those traditional politicians' ANDREJ Kiska emphasises that he is not one of those politicians who have been sitting for years in parliament or the government, and while some observers consider his lack of political experience a disadvantage, he sees it as one of his strengths. Ahead of the first round of the presidential election scheduled for March 15, The Slovak Spectator spoke to Kiska, who says he was fortunate enough to become financially independent and thus he will not have to report to any political party. 3 Mar 2014 Beata Balogová More from Politics & Society

The real threat EDITORIAL IT SEEMS that these days some societies in Europe are eager to protect those who do not need protection, while at the same time overlooking vulnerable groups who are in urgent need of protection from rather real threats, not to mention promoting campaign-induced fear. 3 Mar 2014 Beata Balogová More from Opinion
