On February 21, the Nový Čas daily wrote about Deputy Prime Minister Dušan Čaplovič (SMER-SD), who referred to Kosovo as "Drugovo" when discussing its independence.
The daily reminded its readers that Čaplovič is an important politician and, therefore, should watch his language. An official state representative should not alter the name of another state and demean it, as Slovak National Party (SNS) leader Ján Slota does, the daily wrote. SITA
