Head of nationalist party SNS, Jan Slota, is never out of the limelight for long, and now he has called on the government to consider seriously the possibility of withdrawing from the European Union.
Slota is strongly discontent with various actions and stances of the EU and says the current crisis in the EU could spell the beginning of the end for the EU. He had a long list of grievances to express, foremost about how the EU should not be so concerned about the dubious re-election of Alexander Lukashenko as the Belarus president, but instead be dealing with Hungarian PM Viktor Orban, referring to him as a dictator.
Other targets on his list included the PM of Kosovo, Hashim Thaci, who he referred to as a mass murderer, and also Turkey for its years of oppressing the Kurds. He even said the US presidential elections had been manipulated.
Jan Slota’s comments come as the EU is questioning the elections in Belarus, as Slota is the only political leader in Slovakia to support the re-election of President Lukashenko.
