The SVK Ministry of Defence objects to some media spreading falsehoods about its preparations for a military parade reportedly for €10 million. Admittedly, preparations for the 75th anniversary celebrations of the Slovak National Uprising (SNP), which Slovakia will mark in August 2019, have been underway. Traditionally, the programme features armed forces. However, no decision as to the form, role and extent of their involvement has been made so far. The public should rest assured that no way will the military parade cost the amount stated above.

The working version of the presentation appearing in some media contains only partial information which has been taken out of context. In fact, the information does not relate to military vehicles in support of the military parade, but rather to the scheduled repairs of military vehicles throughout the Training Year (TY) 2019 in an effort to improve the level of readiness of the SVK Armed Forces. It should be made clear that the vehicles mentioned in the presentation will not be used to meet the SVK military’s core operational tasks, nor the officially declared international operational commitments, as both areas have been fully provided for. From the perspective of the current MOD leaders, repairs of military vehicles were neglected in the past, and it is now important that we do our utmost to improve the status of roadworthiness of other vehicles as well.
 
Separating the truth from falsehood, the Ministry of Defence strongly objects to the SNP celebrations issue being misused by some media.
