Slovaks compatriots want more support

Slovak compatriots are unhappy with the assistance they receive from their kin-state. The World Association of Slovaks demands that the Slovak government adopts a law on state assistance for Slovak compatriots.

They also want a separate chapter from the state budget to provide Slovaks living outside Slovakia with a satellite broadcast in Slovak language. A monument commemorating Slovak immigrants is also on the list of the compatriots' demands.

Recent estimates show 1.3 million people claiming Slovak who live abroad. Compared to 1991, the number has dropped by 1.4 million, daily SME claims.
