Slovakia Parliament brands Russia’s regime as “terrorist”

The Parliament of Slovakia on Thursday once again adopted a resolution condemning Russian aggression in Ukraine, including attacks on the civilian population, civilian targets, and energy infrastructure, and expressing support for Ukraine's independence and territorial integrity.

At the same time, the resolution calls the current Russian regime a terrorist one and Russia a country supporting terrorism, Ukrinform reports referring to TASR.

MPs also condemned Russia's direct and indirect threats to use nuclear weapons.

The resolution states that the Slovak Parliament does not recognize either the recent Russian-held referendums in the Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia regions in Ukraine or their outcomes, and views the territories as those remaining part of Ukraine.

Moreover, the lawmakers condemned Russia's hybrid war in Slovakia, calling on the relevant authorities not to underestimate the threat and take action against it in the interests of maintaining security and democracy in Slovakia.
