Šimkovičová resumes cooperation with Russia and Belarus

The Slovak Ministry of Culture has announced the resumption of cooperation with Russia and Belarus. The decision of the new head of the ministry, Martina Šimkovičová, will come into force on Monday, January 22.

This was reported by the Slovak media. They quote Šimkovičová as saying that she had previously suggested that the Slovaks "try to reach an understanding."

Back in March 2022, the Ministry of Culture of this country announced the termination of all communication and cooperation with Russia and Belarus. This was an order from Minister Natalia Milanova. The Slovak official condemned Russian aggression immediately after the outbreak of the war in Ukraine.

However, with the re-election of Prime Minister Robert Fico, a new head of the Ministry of Culture was appointed. This is MP Šimkovičová. She is infamous for her visit to the occupied Crimea in 2018 at a Russian invitation.

"There are dozens of military conflicts in the world, and we believe that artists and culture should not pay for it," Šimkovičová said about her first order to resume cooperation with aggressor countries.
