Slovenia 380x204About the lecture

In Slovenia, people are mostly unsatisfied with the political situation. Prime minister Dr. Cerar is having less and less support, whereas President Pahor is enjoying support. Also, most people disagree with sending Slovenian troops for NATO purposes to the Baltic states; however, this deployment is a necessity because Slovenia needs to pay its share for NATO protection, and because Russia is a threat to other Eastern, Central, and Southern European states.
