The incoming Slovak government has taken the decision to halt arms deliveries to Ukraine, a commitment previously made by its predecessor, fulfilling a campaign promise by Prime Minister Robert Fico.

The aid package, agreed by the transitional administration before its departure, included 140 anti-aircraft missiles, over 5,000 rounds of 125mm artillery ammunition, and 4 million rounds of small-calibre ammunition, as reported by Reuters.

However, the new administration has not approved the proposal to donate military equipment to Ukraine valued at 40.3 million euros, according to the government’s website.

Prior to the election, Fico declared that, should he triumph, Slovakia would scale back military aid to Ukraine, which had been robustly provided until then, but would continue to offer humanitarian assistance. Moreover, he assured that the government would not hinder private firms wishing to manufacture and supply arms to Ukraine.
