Fico’s pro-Russia views

Fico is against the war, and wants the two sides to negotiate for peace. That does not make him or his views pro-Russian.

There should be no negotiating over a country's independence.

There should be no negotiating over a country's independence.

Ukraine will be independent and neutral when the eventual peace talks are concluded. Crimea and Donbas will be a part of Russia. Even though some pro war NAFOs have a hard time accepting it, more and more western / NATO leaders are coming to grips with that reality. Latest is the staunchly pro Ukraine Czech President P. Pavel ( ex Chairman of NATO military committee ) He stated this in an interview yesterday.

“We have to be realistic. It would be naive to say that Ukraine can fully restore the control over the territories it lost to in the foreseeable future. Russia is not going to give up the territory it is occupying now,” he said, referring to four former Ukrainian territories that voted to join Russia in autumn 2022 and also Crimea. Russia and Ukraine should end their conflict and engage in negotiations, Pavel said in an interview with Sky News stressing that the diplomatic process must involve both Kiev and Moscow."

Ukraine stopped being independent when the US carried out a coup in 2014. Fico knows this and he was one of the few western leaders who refused to go along with the West's agenda...

Russia sure negotiated with that supposedly illigitimate government for a long time and there is no other...

Independent countries have armed forces and their own governments free from external influence. What's the over under any of that will happen if the horde state has its way?

Crimea and Donbas will be a part of Russia. Even though some pro war NAFOs have a hard time accepting it, more and more western / NATO leaders are coming to grips with that reality. Latest is the staunchly pro Ukraine Czech President P. Pavel ( ex Chairman of NATO military committee ) He stated this in an interview yesterday.

He's deluded but he didn't say Ukraine should surrender. He also didn't say armaments to Ukraine should stop.

He's deluded but he didn't say Ukraine should surrender.

Regarding who is deluded - If it comes to a choice between a Czech President and ex NATO military committee chairman Pavel and some random NAFO JT expert, the choice is clear, and it isn't Pavel who is deluded.

Yep, FICO sure makes a lot of sense when it comes to Ukraine as is evident from his interviews.

Was watching a series of Fico's TV interviews. Didn't realize the extent of his truth telling and honesty. Saw a one-on-one interview and they were discussing the Ukraine issue and he explained how "Ukrainian fascists murdered and burned Russians". He was talking about Maidan and the Odessa atrocity of 2/5/2014.

Urge people to track down his interviews and watch them. No wonder the MSM smear and label him. Hard to find candid people these days.

The media and people who subscribe to the narrative really have it all back to front about him and Orban. One driving force in the national consensus of both lands - especially Hungary - is the fact they both got sucked into two world wars by power politics, each time with disastrous consequences. Both countries know full well that if it goes completely pear-shaped next door (a confrontation with NATO), they will be in the firing line again because of geography and not because they want to be.

So that makes it okay to bomb and burn Ukrainians in 2024. Makes no sense but that is to be expected of the Putinists.

Pushed is more like it..

Nope. You claimed he was 'duped' into it by nameless neocons.

I understand it though. If I was feeble minded enough to support Putin I'd probably find a feeble way to blame my dirty little habit on something feeble too.

So you also think the Czech President and ex Chairman of NATO Military Committee who also happens to be one of Ukraine,s staunchest supporters is delusional and wrong but your buddy Taiwan is not.? Riiight...LOL..sure.

You have a good giggle there fella. Did I say that either was right or wrong?

Thanks I will.

Did I say that either was right or wrong?

So which is it....do you think the Czech President / NATO Military Committee Chairman is delusional as Taiwan says or not? Which one has more insight and is likely correct in their assessment - Pavel or Taiwan?

Yeah, but all we hear is that Fico is pro-Russian and divisive...

I don't care about your little spat with @Taiwan. I think that adults who believe that Putin was duped into invading Ukraine by nameless Americans aren't in a postion to judge what is delusional.

It's lucky the internet exists because you couldn't actually say that to a person's face without them feeling profoundly embarrassed for you.
