Eduard Heger

Former Prime Minister, Slovak Republic

Listen to Event Audio

Slovakia under Prime Minister Eduard Heger had been one of the most robust Ukraine supporters in Europe since Russia’s 2022 full-scale invasion. But Slovakia’s 2023 parliamentary election brought to power the opposing Smer party, which is less supportive of Kyiv. The Smer government under Robert Fico has also signaled its intention to adopt different policies on key domestic political, economic, and social issues. Slovakia will elect a new president in Spring 2024 and a new slate of members of the European Parliament in June.

Join Hudson Senior Fellow Matt Boyse for a discussion on current developments in Central Europe, especially Slovakia, and Russia’s war against Ukraine with Eduard Heger, Slovak prime minister from April 2021 until May 2023.

A light lunch will be available following the conversation.
