Kiska commented on the decisions of several western countries to expel Russian diplomats. Their actions in Slovakia exceed the bounds of ordinary diplomatic activities, said the Slovak president, who is concerned by the current state, as reported by the Denník N daily.

He expressed regret over the fact that Slovakia is the only country of the Visegrad Group (V4) to not expel Russian diplomats, following the poisoning of double agent Sergei Skripal with Novichok in the UK.

Slovakia needs to express its solidarity with NATO partners, he stressed, as reported by Denník N.
