"We welcome to Ukraine Mrs. Zuzana Chaputova, the President of Slovakia, and thank her for her determination and moral leadership in this war. Today we discussed the situation at the frontline in detail.

Unlike the current Slovak government of Prime Minister Robert Fico, Chaputov supports the provision of military assistance to Ukraine, Slovak media report. After taking office in the fall of 2023, Fico's government stopped supplying military equipment to Ukraine from state stocks.
