Ljubljana, 8. 7. 2014 | press release
President Borut Pahor had separate discussions with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and NATO Supreme Commander of the Alliance of Operations Philip M. Breedlov during which he stressed that Slovenia does not approve of Russian conduct in Ukraine. Although Slovenia considers the Russian Federation a friendly country, the President expressed disagreement with their policies which strain the relations between Russia and the European Union, of which Slovenia is a member. According to the President of the Republic, a peaceful solution to the situation in Ukraine is essential and it would also be helpful for the much needed consensus in resolving other crises in the international community.
