The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic (MZVEZSR) welcomes the course of the second round of presidential elections in Ukraine which it regards as the expression of the legitimate will of the citizens of the country. The Ministry also supports the preliminary evaluation of the elections contained in the document of the International Election Observation Mission of 22 April of this year.

 

The Slovak Republic expresses its interest in a stable, democratic and prospering Ukraine and in the enhancement of cooperation and the multifaceted development of bilateral relations with its nearest neighbour. Also in this context, Slovakia is looking forward to collaborating with the new Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky who has won a strong mandate from his voters in the elections. The Slovak Republic is ready to continue to support the integration ambitions of Ukraine and assist in its reform processes in the current complicated times, while supporting -- in the long-run and consistently -- Ukraine’s souvereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders.
