Fico supports Putin’s opposition to US missile shield

Prime Minister Robert Fico announced his support for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s opposition to the US’ plan to build an anti-missile base in the Czech Republic and Poland on April 27.

Fico said that during his official visit to Moscow on May 3-4, he would tell Putin in person that he would never permit the construction of a US radar base in Slovakia.

Fico also said he understands Russia's fears.

On the other hand, Slovak diplomats see the construction of an anti-missile base in Central Europe as a contribution to security across the whole region, said Foreign Minister Ján Kubiš.
