The President Honoured the Memory of M. R. Štefánik

On 04 May 2020, President Zuzana Čaputová honoured the memory of General Milan Rastislav Štefánik at Ivanka pri Dunaji on the 101st anniversary of his tragic death.

The president said that it is vital for our present and future to recall the great personalities of our history. “General Milan Rastislav Štefánik showed his well-rounded personality in his outlook, his education and above all in his courage. Without him, the Czecho-Slovak foreign legions would not have been formed, Slovakia would not have been emancipated from Hungary and the Czechoslovak Republic would not have been existed. Although Milan Rastislav Štefánik’s life was short, his deeds resonate to this day.”
