Slovak Army Losing Former Glory Due to NATO’s Own Agenda

Jozef Žarnovičan, chairman of the Association of Slovak troops, spoke to Sputnik about the Slovak army and how NATO has changed the Slovak armed forces’ focus from defending its own country and interests.

“The armed forces of the Slovak Republic are aimed at protecting something and someone else and can be easily used for aggression against another state — even against the will of the government and the citizens of Slovakia,” Jozef Žarnovičan in an interview with Sputnik Czech Republic warned.

“After the fall of Czechoslovakia, the Slovak army had all the qualities of a well-equipped, trained, fully functional army, intended to protect the entire perimeter of the Slovak border from potential attacks.”

“After joining NATO the Slovak Army began to corrode. Now it is not an army in the true sense of the word — the army to defend the country, democracy, life and property of the citizens of Slovakia. It is armed forces that are a part of the coalition forces of NATO. That is how the Slovak armed forces are now structured, managed and used,” Žarnovičan told Sputnik.
