Slovakia pledges support for EU sanctions against Russia

Slovakia continues to support the EU's sanctions policy against the Russian Federation and condemns the violation of the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

President of the Slovak Republic Zuzana Čaputová said this during a joint press conference with President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in Bratislava on Thursday, according to an Ukrinform correspondent.

“It is necessary to implement the measures taken by European Union in relation to Russia – we are talking about the policy of sanctions,” Čaputová said, answering an Ukrinform correspondent's question on how to make Russia stop its aggression and return the occupied territories to Ukraine.

At the same time, the Slovak President noted the importance of conducting and maintaining a dialogue for establishing peace. In this regard, she welcomed the ongoing ceasefire in Donbas, which was reached through negotiations.

“I assured President Zelensky that we are an ally of Ukraine. The ally that supports its sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity, and also supports Ukraine on its way to the EU,” Čaputová said.

As reported, President Volodymyr Zelensky is on an official visit to Slovakia on Thursday, September 24.
