Since 2016, Slovak laws makes it impossible for Islam to become a state-recognized religion. Slovakia has adopted measures making it difficult for Islam to become one of the country’s officially recognized religions, making it the European country with the toughest laws against Islam in all of Europe.
In 2016, two-thirds of deputies, including opposition ones, voted in favor of laws submitted by the governmental Slovak National Party (SNS) that required religious groups in the country to have 50,000 followers to run their schools, open religious establishments or qualify for government subsidies. The law previously required only 20,000 signatures.
According to official sources, Islam, which was primarily targeted by the law, has a maximum of 5,000 followers in Slovakia.

Farmers are saving money to buy their rented fields. They are cutting purchases of combines and other farm machinery by up to 40%, says Alex Lissitsa, CEO of IMC, a major agrobusiness. He said: “Investments in technology will be suspended in the next two years. Everybody started to save all their money, as it’s likely that the banks won’t give big loans.” This spring the Rada is to pass a limited law allowing Ukrainian farmers to buy and sell up to 10,000 hectares. The market would start in October.

Bernie Sanders: Bread lines are good thing.
It’s 1988 in the Soviet Union, the mood is festive, and Bernie Sanders is sitting at a table shirtless in his briefs with his wife, Jane, handing out gifts to the mayor of a midsize city they’ve befriended.
“I have met many fine mayors in the United States,” Sanders says, “but I want to say that one of the nicest mayors I’ve ever met is the mayor of Yaroslavl.”
At another point,a member of Sanders’ delegation hands a Russian woman a small American flag.

Former White House national security adviser John Bolton pocketed $115,000 from Ukrainian steel oligarch Viktor Pinchuk’s foundation shortly before entering President Donald Trump’s White House as national security adviser, a position first held in the Trump White House by General Michael Flynn. Bolton’s unpublished manuscript reportedly accuses Trump of wanting to withhold military aid to Ukraine, but Trump denies this had anything to do with a Quid Pro Quo situation. Democrats are clamoring to call Bolton as a witness in Trump’s Senate impeachment trial regarding his alleged pressuring of the Ukrainian president to investigate Joe Biden’s alleged corruption in the country’s oil and gas industry. Ukraine’s president Zelensky adamantly denies that Trump pressured him.
