2 Conflict in Ukraine
Slovakia is a neighboring country with Ukraine, however Slovakia is not part of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. Slovakia is still safe country and a member of NATO.
Currently the war fronts are held in the east of Ukraine, approximately 1200 – 1400 km (750-900 miles) far away from the eastern border of Slovakia. That is an equivalent of the distance from London to Florence or New York to Chicago.
There are Ukrainian refugees fleeing to Slovakia. The Police in coordination with armed forces are securing a control crossing of the Slovak-Ukrainian border and the people fleeing from the war are given the help they seek.
At the moment Slovakia remains safe country to travel. If you have any concerns, feel free to contact us at [email protected]
