The decision of Russian President Vladimir Putin to recognize the independence of the separatist republics in the Donbas has also brought negative reactions in Slovakia. Peter Kmec (Voice), a former ambassador to the United States, joined the words of the head of diplomacy, Ivan Korčok (nom. SaS), about a gross violation of international law.
“Putin’s move is rational. I call on Ukraine to comply with the so-called Minsk Agreements, and it has repealed them itself, “he said in connection with the truth. He described the Russian president’s speech as extremely nervous and tense.

Kmec unequivocally rejects and condemns calls for attacks on coalition members who recently approved the agreement in parliament. Asked if Hlas would go into a coalition with Uhrík and Mazurek (both Nez.
