This stems from a statement signed by numerous personalities active in the cultural, social and political sphere in Slovakia.
“Robert Fico also applies the principle of the collective guilt on the terror’s victims, similarly as the communist and Nazi regime,” the activists’ statement sent to media reads. “With his attitude he forces himself out to the most radical end of European extremism.”
The activists stressed they refuse any terror at the time the civilised Europe fights against terrorism, but also for preserving its values. The fight brings victims, not only in Paris and the Middle East, but also in Ukraine where the militants violate the peace agreements again, they added.
“We will not be intimidated with terrorism,” the activists said, adding that at the time we remember the anniversary of the Velvet Revolution, which “stopped denying human dignity of a single person, confronted terror and condemned the attribution of collective guilt to the victims of the totalitarian regime”, Slovakia should follow the route it has marked out.
Among the signatories are psychiatrist Jozef Hašto, activist Fedor Gál, head of the Institute for Public Affairs Grigorij Mesežnikov, political scientist Soňa Szomolányi, actor Lucia Piussi, director Robert Kirchhoff, writer Michal Hvorecký and Most-Híd politician Rudolf Chmel.
