Study: Slovaks increasingly critical of the US

SLOVAKS are increasingly critical of the US, with disagreement with the superpower growing dramatically after the Iraq war, says a new study by the Institute for Public Affairs think tank.

According to the report, the biggest opponents of the US in Slovakia are people with lower levels of education, senior citizens, and supporters of the country's parliamentary opposition parties including the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia, the Communist Party, and the non-parliamentary Slovak National Party.

A more pro-American opinion was recorded among university-educated Slovaks, and supporters of the ruling Slovak Democratic and Christian Union and the Hungarian Coalition Party.

Many Slovaks share a negative perception of US President George W Bush, and the US's attitude towards other states. They are also critical of US policies after the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, DC.
