Fico (Robert)

Robert Fico (born 1964) is a Slovak politician who has served multiple terms as Prime Minister of Slovakia, representing the left-wing party, Direction – Social Democracy (Smer-SD). Known for his pragmatic and often controversial political stance, Fico has maintained a complex relationship with Russia and Ukraine. In 2023, serving as prime-minister, Fico ended Slovakian military aid to Ukraine. Many in Ukraine and the European Union see him as an ally of Vladimir Putin due to his frequent calls for closer ties with Russia and his criticism of EU sanctions.In 2024, Robert Fico survived an assassination attempt, only a week after the sudden death of the Iranian president Ebrahim Raisi in an accident. That sparked a lot of memes in Ukraine, as both countries align themselves with Russia. [ChatGPT, edited]
