On the Road to Berlin (Doroga na Berlin, aka Road to Berlin ) is a 2015 film directed by Sergei Popov.

Despite the title, the characters in the story aren't on the road to Berlin and in fact are headed in the other direction. The film is set on the southern portion of the Eastern Front of World War II, as the Germans attack, in an offensive that will eventually end at Stalingrad. Sergey Ogarkov is a smooth-faced young lieutenant who, as the story opens, is carrying orders to army headquarters. Unfortunately for Sergei, Germans burst out of the woods and overrun his location. Sergei survives, running away, but when he's caught by his own people he's charged as a deserted and sentenced to death. (This sort of thing was all too common.)

As he awaits his execution Sergei is guarded by Private Dzhurbaev, who is not an ethnic Russian but a Kazakh from central Asia. The order must be confirmed by army headquarters, so Pvt. Dzhurbaev is assigned to escort Sergey back to headquarters. But the Germans are on the march and the Red Army is in headlong retreat, so Sergei and Dzhurbaev wind up going on a harrowing, difficult cross-country march on foot during war.

  • All for Nothing : Sergei and Dzhurbaev are led by a local boy to a pilot, badly wounded in a crash. They work their butts off to get the pilot to safety, taking him across a river on a raft and then carrying him on a stretcher. They finally get him to Russian lines, but the doctor who receives the pilot amputates both his legs. When the pilot wakes up and finds this out, he kills himself.
  • Day Hurts Dark-Adjusted Eyes : Sergei, after Dzhurbaev pulls him out of the storage bin where he's been locked up.
  • Distant Finale : The last few minutes of the film skip forward three years, to show the Red Army marching to Berlin in 1945. Sergei, who is still alive, meets an old friend of his and remembers Dzhurbaev.
  • Drop Dead Gorgeous : Sergei and Dzhurbaev, in a burnt-out village, find the naked, dead body of a woman, obviously raped by the Germans. Dzhurbaev covers her with a coat.
  • Honor Before Reason : Sergei delivers himself to be executed after Dzhurbaev is killed by a German artillery barrage. Things work out in the end, though.
  • Insignia Rip-Off Ritual : After Sergei is convicted of cowardice at a drumhead courtmartial, the officer in charge orders that his shoulderboards be ripped off.
  • Jitter Cam : When Sergei is running for his life after a squad of German tanks overruns the area.
  • Just in Time : The firing squad is raising rifles when an orderly comes in calling Sergei's name. He's been summoned to the commandant.
  • Mood Whiplash : Sergei is having a friendly conversation with an attractive war widow. There's even a hint of Maybe Ever After when she suggests that one day, when the war is over, he could come and visit. Then out of nowhere German artillery starts falling, and Dzhurbaev is killed.
  • Never Learned to Read : After they've become friends, the illiterate Dzhurbaev asks Sergei to write a letter home for him. Sergei does so, and mails it off after Dzhurbaev is killed.
  • The Quiet One : While not silent, Dzhurbaev is pretty taciturn, possibly because he's from Central Asia and not perfectly fluent in Russian. Much of his dialogue is saying stuff like "It is forbidden" and "We must go to Army headquarters."
  • Road Trip Plot : On foot, as Sergei and Dzhurbaev, trekking cross-country, find burnt-out villages, witness war crimes, help a downed pilot, and wind up defending a village against the Germans.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran : A sergeant, with his head swathed in bloody bandages, has clearly gone mad. He starts screaming "Why did you change?" at all of his fellow Russians in the village, thinking they are Germans in disguise. Worse, he's brandishing a gun. Another officer shoots him.
  • Spiteful Spit : Sergei and Dzhurbaev, hiding in the weeds, see a bunch of Russian prisoners being held by the Germans. One, presumably an officer, is yanked to his feet and brought to a German officer, who asks him something. The Russian spits at the German, and then the German shoots him.
  • Visual Title Drop : The 1945 Distant Finale shows that the Red Army actually is on the road to Berlin, as indicated by a signpost showing Berlin only 70km distant, with Moscow over 1800km in the rear.

“The Truck to Berlin”—Fiction from Hassan Blasim

what is the thesis of on the road to berlin

Vian Sora, "Echo and Narcissus," mixed media on canvas 7′ x 5′, 2 1:2” depth, collection of the Speed Art Museum, 2018 (courtesy of Vian Sora).

Reminiscent of Ghassan Kanafani’s novella  Men in the Sun , this bleak and hyper real short story by Hassan Blasim is included in his prize-winning collection, The Madman of Freedom Square, and appears here by special arrangement with his publisher, Comma Press . These stories present an uncompromising view of the West’s relationship with Iraq, spanning over twenty years and taking in everything from the Iran-Iraq War through to the Occupation, as well as offering a haunting critique of the post-war refugee experience. Blending allegory with historical realism, and subverting readers’ expectations in an unflinching comedy of the macabre, Blasim manages to convey both the phantasmagoric and shockingly real. He often writes with a light touch despite the fact that his stories are steeped in personal nightmare.

Hassan Blasim

what is the thesis of on the road to berlin

T his story took place in darkness and if I were destined to write it again, I would record only the cries of terror which rang out at the time and the other mysterious noises that accompanied the massacre. A major part of the story would make a good experimental radio piece. For sure most readers would see the story as merely a fabrication by the author or maybe as a modest allegory for horror. But I see no need to swear an oath in order for you to believe in the strangeness of this world. What I need to do is write this story, like a shit stain on a nightshirt, or perhaps a stain in the form of a wild flower.

In the summer of 2000 I was working in a bar in the middle of Istanbul. My broken English helped me in the job, since the customers were tourists, mostly Germans who also spoke laughable English. At the time I was on the run from the hell of the years of economic sanctions, not out of fear of hunger or of Saddam Hussein. In fact I was on the run from myself and from other monsters. In those cruel years fear of the unknown helped obliterate the sense of belonging to a familiar reality and brought to the surface a savagery which had been buried beneath a man’s simple daily needs. In those years a vile and bestial cruelty prevailed, driven by fear of dying from starvation. I felt I was in danger of turning into a rat.

I saved some money from my work and paid it to those who smuggle the human cattle of the East to the farms of the West. There were ways of smuggling that differed in price: traveling by air on a forged passport, which was very costly, and walking with the smuggler through forests and rivers on the borders, which was the cheapest way. There was the sea route and the truck route, which I had considered, though I was disturbed by stories of the device the police use to measure the level of carbon dioxide in the trucks to detect the breath of those hiding inside them. But it was not that device which made me abandon the idea of traveling by truck, but rather the story of Ali the Afghan and the massacre on the truck to Berlin. The Afghan was a treasure trove of smuggling stories. He had lived in Istanbul illegally for ten years. He worked in forgery and selling drugs, to spend what he earned on Russian prostitutes and bribing the police. Some people have ridiculed me for believing the story of the truck to Berlin. In fact I have more than one reason for believing such stories. Because in my view the world is very fragile, frightening and inhumane. All it needs is a little shake for its hideous nature and its primeval fangs to emerge. Obviously you already know many similarly tragic stories of migration and its horrors from the media, which have focused first and foremost on migrants drowning. My view is that as far as the public is concerned such mass drownings are an enjoyable film scene, like a new Titanic . The media do not, for example, carry reports of black comedy, just as you do not read stories about what the armies of European democracies do when at night, in a vast forest, they catch a group of terrified humans, drenched in rain, hungry and cold. I have seen how the Bulgarian police beat a young Pakistani with a spade until he lost consciousness. Then in the bitterest cold they asked us all to get into a river that was almost frozen over. That was before they handed us over to the Turkish army.

Ali the Afghan says that there were thirty-five young Iraqis, dreaming youngsters who had made a deal with a Turkish smuggler to carry them in a closed truck exporting tinned fruit from Istanbul to Berlin. The deal was this: Everyone would pay $4,000 for a trip that would last just seven days; the truck would travel by night and spend the day stopped at small border towns; anyone who wanted to take a shit would have to do that during the daytime; pissing would be allowed during the night in empty water bottles; no one could carry a mobile phone during the trip; everyone must keep silent and breathe quietly while the truck was stopped at border posts or traffic controls, and there should be absolutely no quarreling. But what worried the Berlin truck group was the story published in the Turkish newspapers a few days earlier about a group of Afghans who paid an Iranian smuggler large sums of money to carry them by truck to Greece. The truck drove for a full night. At daybreak it stopped and the smuggler told them to get out quietly because they had reached a Greek border town. The Afghans got out of the truck hugging their bags, feeling a mixture of joy and fear, and sat down under a giant tree. The smuggler said they were in a small Greek wood and all they had to do was wait till the morning and, when the Greek police turned up, they should immediately apply for asylum. In the morning the newspapers published a picture of the Afghans sitting in a public garden in the middle of Istanbul. The truck had driven them around the streets of Istanbul all night and had not even left the suburbs. As in all stories of fraud and deception, the Iranian and his truck vanished and the Afghans were thrown in jail pending deportation.

But the Berlin truck group had no choice but to take the risk. To be frightened of stories of fraud would mean paralysis, losing hope and going back to a country where hunger and injustice were rife. They also relied on the reputation of the famous smuggler, who they were told was the best and most honest smuggler in all Turkey. So far he had never failed and had not tricked anyone. He was a pious man and had performed the haj pilgrimage three times, and so was called Haj Ibrahim.

Haj Ibrahim’s truck left Istanbul by night, after the “customers” had loaded up with food and bottles of water. The dark and heat inside the truck was intense, though air did leak inside through small invisible holes. For fear that the air would run out, the young men were breathing rapidly, like someone preparing to dive into a river. After five hours of travel, the smell of bodies, sweaty socks and the spicy food they were eating in the darkness made it even stuffier. But the first night was a success. In the morning the truck stopped at a garage in a border village. The back door was opened and the customers could breathe again, their hopes renewed. The garage was a former cowshed and two young men supervised the shitting operation. The travelers were not allowed to get off the truck, let alone go into the village or anywhere else. One of the two young men took them in turn to a small and very dirty toilet in the corner of the cowshed, while the other bought food and water for them and came back at the end of the day.

On the second night there was a Mercedes car which drove well ahead of the Berlin truck to check the road and provide the truck driver with information. The Berlin truck drove in peace all the second night, making only three very short stops. In the morning they took them this time to a large garage which had other trucks and it was easy to hear the noise of the town.

On the third night a military jeep drove ahead of the truck to secure the route. In this stage of the trip the truck drove only five hours, before it suddenly stopped, turned and retraced its path at high speed. In the darkness of the truck the young men were discouraged and could feel the driver’s panic in the crazy way he was driving. They started to grumble and some of them recited prayers and verses of the Quran to themselves or under their breath. One young man kept repeating the “Throne Verse of the Quran” out loud. He had a beautiful voice, but it was marred by his plaintive tone, which added to the dismay of the other travelers. The truck drove at this speed for close to an hour, then stopped again. A quarter of an hour later the journey resumed at a moderate speed, but the young men could not make out which direction they were moving in: Some favored the idea that they were going back, others believed they were continuing the journey. They thought it was the smuggling mafias that were giving instructions to the driver by mobile phone, depending on the road conditions and dangers such as police patrols. Then the passengers felt that the truck had started to drive along a winding dirt road. The truck suddenly came to a halt, the driver turned off the engine and an eerie and mysterious silence reigned inside the truck to Berlin, a satanic silence that would bring forth a miracle and a story hard to believe.

The thirty-five young men waited in the darkness of the truck more than three hours, whispering to each other about what had happened. Some of them tried to peek out of the very small holes near the back door. Their watches showed 7:10 in the morning, time to stock up on water. They still had enough food but the water would run out quickly, and then there was the need to take a shit. That’s how the unrest began. Some of them started to kick the sides of the truck and shout out to anyone outside. Three of them objected and asked the others to keep quiet. The smell of strife hung in the meager and electric air. They could see each other only as dark shadows and could tell each other apart only by judging the direction of someone’s voice. By midday almost everyone was banging on the walls and back door of the truck and calling out for help. Some shat in food bags, and the repulsive smell built up inside the truck like strata of rock. The young men’s breathing, taken together, was like that of a monster roaring in the dark. The fear and the smell so shattered everyone’s nerves that quarreling and fistfights broke out in the gloom. The fighting spread, then after an hour died down because thirst had restored the calm. Everyone sat around whispering and speculating in low voices, like a hive of bees. Every now and then one of them would curse or kick the walls of the truck. At this stage most of the young men were making sure they had hidden in their bags what food and water they had left.

Despite the pitch black, which made it impossible to tell a face from a foot, some of them did things which were not really necessary under the circumstances. One would tie up his shoelaces, another would take off his watch and hide it in his pocket, and a third would change his shirt in the dark. Such is the imagination of man, which is strangely active in situations such as this, and acts like an alarm bell or a hallucinogenic drug.

On the third day there was complete chaos. Some young men who still had the energy to hang on to life tried to break down the truck door, while others kept shouting and banging on the walls. One of them was begging and pleading for a gulp of water. The sound of farts and insults. Quranic verses and prayers recited in loud voices. Some were overcome with despair and sat thinking about their lives like patients about to die. The smells were unbearable, enough to exterminate more than one flock of the birds hovering over their heads. I am not writing now about those sounds and smells which come and go along the paths of secret migration, but about that resounding scream which suddenly burst from the chaos. It sounded like an unknown force which transformed the uproar and chaos of the truck into a cruel layer of ice. Then there reigned an intense and cloying silence which made it possible to hear the heartbeat of every traveler. It was a scream that emerged from caves whose secrets have never been unraveled. When they heard the scream, they tried to imagine the source of this voice, neither human nor animal, which had rocked the darkness of the truck.

It seemed that the cruelty of man, the cruelty of animals and legendary monsters had condensed and together had started to play a hellish tune.

After four days the Serbian police came across the truck on the edge of a small border town surrounded by forest on all sides. The truck was in an abandoned poultry field. It’s not important now what happened to the smugglers, for all these stories are similar. Perhaps the smugglers found out that the police were watching their movements and wanted to hide a few days, or perhaps it was for some trivial reason connected with disputes between the smuggling mafias over money.

When the policemen opened the back door of the truck, a young man soaked in blood jumped down from inside and ran like a madman towards the forest. The police chased him but he disappeared into the vast forest. In the truck there were thirty-four bodies. They had not been torn apart with knives or any other weapon. Rather it was the claws and beaks of eagles, the teeth of crocodiles and other unknown instruments that had been at work on them. The truck was full of shit and piss and blood, livers ripped apart, eyes gouged out, intestines just as though hungry wolves had been there. Thirty-four young men had become a large soggy mass of flesh, blood and shit.

No one believed the story which Jankovic, the Serbian policeman told. In fact they made fun of him. Those who were with him there did not corroborate his account, though they did agree with him about the bloodstained youth who ran off into the forest. The Serbian newspapers asked why the youth disappeared but the police claimed that he crossed the border into Hungary.

In bed Jankovic looks at the ceiling and speaks to his wife: “I’m not mad, woman. I tell you for the thousandth time. As soon as the man reached the forest he started to run on all fours, then turned into a grey wolf, before he vanished …”

Man wanted for rape and murder dead after being shot by U.S. Marshal and St. Johns County detective

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A man wanted in South Carolina is dead after an officer-involved shooting on New Berlin Road.

The man was wanted in South Carolina on several warrants, including sexual battery, Jacksonville Sheriff T.K. Waters said in a news conference Tuesday evening.

He was also wanted for a deadly stabbing in Jacksonville that happened last week.

>>> STREAM ACTION NEWS JAX LIVE <<<

According to Sheriff Waters, a U.S. Marshals task force was surveilling the man and discovered he was in Jacksonville.

Around 4:30 p.m., a JSO detective noticed a car in Oceanway and set up to watch it. After 15 minutes, a man who looked similar to the wanted man exited a nearby store. Sheriff Waters said the detective also saw a male driver and a possible female passenger exit the car.

The driver fled the scene, and the JSO detective pursued him. While the driver was being arrested, a U.S. Marshal and a St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office detective assigned to the U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force shot and killed the original suspect.

Action News Jax Ben Ryan was told the wanted man was armed.

Action News Jax also told you one officer had minor injuries, but we weren’t told how or what agency the officer is part of.

WEATHER ALERT

2 warnings and an advisory in effect for 10 regions in the area

St. johns county deputy, us marshal shoot, kill armed man wanted in south carolina at oceanway gas station, jacksonville sheriff t.k. waters says no jso officer fired shots.

Aleesia Hatcher , Multimedia Journalist

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – An armed man wanted in South Carolina on a sexual battery charge was killed in Oceanway on Tuesday when a St. Johns County deputy and U.S. Marshal shot him, authorities said.

Jacksonville Sheriff T.K. Waters said in a news conference that the U.S. Marshal’s FAST team, which includes members of the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office and St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office, was watching the man, who had warrants for his arrest in South Carolina and was also wanted in connection with a fatal stabbing in Jacksonville last week.

JSO reported a deadly stabbing on May 16 on LaMarche Drive in the Normandy Village area, but Waters did not specify if that was the same stabbing the man was wanted for.

Waters said a JSO officer spotted a stolen car parked at a Circle K gas station on North Main Street and New Berlin Road.

The officer saw the driver and a woman get out of the vehicle to go inside the store. Once he confirmed that one of the men in the vehicle was the person they were looking for, the officer went to arrest the driver.

Waters said at the same time that the JSO officer was taking the driver into custody, a St. Johns County deputy and a U.S. Marshal shot and killed the armed man who was wanted in South Carolina.

Waters did not provide any further details on what led to the shooting, stating he would leave those details up to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement to communicate. The FDLE is investigating the shooting.

No JSO officers shot at the man, Waters reiterated, and no members of law enforcement were injured.

The other man in the car and the woman were also arrested, but Waters did not say what their charges were.

Toxic Political Culture Has Even Some Slovaks Calling Country ‘a Black Hole.’

Slovakia has long been dogged by criticism that it is prone to authoritarianism, but a frenzy of blame since an assassination attempt has heightened such concerns.

A person walks past a white government building that is the presidential palace in Bratislava, Slovakia.

By Andrew Higgins

Reporting from Bratislava and Piestany, Slovakia

More than a quarter century has passed since the United States called Slovakia a “black hole in the center of Europe” — an island of autocratic malaise surrounded by spry new democracies. The insult, leveled in 1997 by Secretary of State Madeleine Albright against a country that has since joined NATO and the European Union, still stings.

But some in the Central European nation, appalled by an attempt last week to assassinate their prime minister , Robert Fico, and the frenzy of political finger-pointing that ensued, i ncluding warnings of civil war , are wondering whether Ms. Albright was on to something.

“We are back in a black hole; I’m not sure we ever got out of it,” said Roman Kvasnica, a prominent Slovak lawyer who denounces a political culture in which threats and personal insults are routine. In his own legal work he has faced numerous threats, including a warning that he would get a “bullet in the head” from a tycoon charged with ordering the 2018 murder of an investigative journalist digging into government corruption.

Exasperated by his country’s divisive struggles to establish the rule of law and resist the temptations of strongman leadership, the lawyer displays a portrait of Vaclav Havel, an icon of democratic idealism , on the wall of his country house in western Slovakia. Mr. Havel served as the first president of post-communist Czechoslovakia, the state that in 1993 split amicably into the Czech Republic and the Republic of Slovakia.

Mr. Havel, a former playwright whose writing helped bring down the Berlin Wall and who later was president of the Czech Republic, is a reminder, Mr. Kvasnica said, of the road not taken by Slovakia, which spent much of the same period under the rule of Vladimir Meciar, an early pioneer of nationalist-tinged populism and a master of stoking polarization.

Hopes that Slovak politicians might overcome their venomous feuds faded on Sunday when President-elect Peter Pellegrini announced that efforts to get opposing parties to sit down together and agree on “basic rules for decent political battles” had collapsed. Recent days, he said, showed that “some politicians simply are not able to display a basic self-reflection, even in the aftermath of such an immense tragedy.”

Robert Kalinak, the deputy prime minister, who is running the government in the absence of the critically wounded Mr. Fico, added to the unease by backing away from officials’ previous insistence that the gunman was a “lone wolf.”

“The situation seems even worse,” Mr. Kalinak said Sunday at a news conference in Bratislava, the capital. New evidence, he said, indicates “there was some form of assistance in terms of concealing the clues and that a third person acted in favor of the perpetrator.”

“All of this is shocking, and for many of us it would be much easier if we could speak about only one person,” he added.

The only person so far charged in the case is a 71-year-old amateur poet, former coal mine worker, stone mason and supermarket security guard. People who knew him in his hometown , Levice, in central Slovakia, say the man, named only as Juraj C. by officials, jumped between often contradictory causes and had no strong affiliation with either of the two main political camps.

But he nursed intense grievances toward the whole system, according to people who knew him, which is not rare in Slovakia.

Of all the countries in Central and Eastern Europe that shook off communist rule in 1989, Slovakia has the highest proportion of citizens who view liberal democracy as a threat to their identity and values — 43 percent compared with 15 percent in the neighboring Czech Republic — according to a regional opinion survey released this month by Globsec, a research group based in Bratislava. Support for Russia has declined sharply since the start of the full-scale invasion of Ukraine in 2022, but 27 percent of Slovaks see it as key strategic partner, the highest level in the region.

Grigorij Meseznikov, president of the Institute for Public Affairs in Bratislava, said such views highlighted a deep paradox for Slovakia, which is by many criteria a successful model of transition from communism. It has become a manufacturing hub for German carmakers, developed a vibrant and diverse media landscape and become so well integrated in the European Union that it is the only country in the region to use its common currency, the euro.

But many of its people — particularly those living outside big cities — feel left behind and resentful, Mr. Meseznikov said, and are “more vulnerable than elsewhere to conspiracy theories and narratives that liberal democracy is a menace.”

The picture is much the same in many other formerly communist countries and has allowed Prime Minister Viktor Orban in neighboring Hungary to establish an increasingly authoritarian system. But Slovakia’s politics are particularly poisonous, swamped by wild conspiracy theories and bile.

The foundations of this were laid in the 1990s when Mr. Meciar formed what is still one of the country’s two main political blocs: an alliance of right-wing nationalists, business cronies and anti-establishment leftists. All thrived on denouncing their centrist and liberal opponents as enemies willing to sell out the country’s interests to the West, Mr. Meseznikov said.

“Meciar was a pioneer,” he said. “He was a typical representative of national populism with an authoritarian approach, and so is Fico.”

On the day Mr. Fico was shot, Parliament was meeting to endorse an overhaul of public television to purge what his governing party views as unfair bias in favor of political opponents, a reprise of efforts in the 1990s by Mr. Meciar to mute media critics.

The legislation was part of a raft of measures that the European Commission in February said risked doing “irreparable damage” to the rule of law. These include measures to limit corruption investigations and impose what critics denounced as Russian-style restrictions on nongovernmental organizations. The government opposes military aid to Ukraine and L.G.B.T.Q. rights, is often at odds with the European Union and, like Mr. Orban, favors friendly relations with Vladimir V. Putin’s Russia.

In the run-up to the election last September that returned Mr. Fico, a fixture of Slovak politics for more than two decades, to power, he and his allies took an increasingly hostile stance toward the United States and Ukraine, combined with sympathetic words for Russia.

Their statements often recalled a remark by Mr. Meciar, who, resisting demands in the 1990s that he must change his ways if Slovakia wanted to join the European Union, held up Russia as an alternative haven: “if they don’t want us in the West, we’ll go East.”

Dominik Zelinsky, a researcher at the Slovak Academy of Science’s Institute for Sociology, said that, despite the intensity of the current political conflict, there was no risk today of Slovakia again “becoming a complete outsider” adrift from the European Union and NATO.

But, he added, “the frames that the society and its elites use to interpret the conflict remain the same: a choice between a Western path and being something of a bridge between the East and the West, as well as a choice between liberal democracy and illiberal, authoritarian government.”

When Mr. Fico first became prime minister in 2006, he stood on the left but, needing help to form a stable government, turned to the Slovak National Party, a nationalist grouping that had earlier been allied with Mr. Meciar.

Andrej Danko, the leader of the party, which is now part of the new coalition government formed by Mr. Fico after the September election, said that the attempt to assassinate Mr. Fico represented the “start of a political war” between the country’s two opposing camps.

Accused by its critics of stoking dangerous tensions and animosity toward the media, the government has responded by asserting that the other side started the fight by blaming Mr. Fico and his allies for the 2018 murder of the investigative journalist.

“Not only Robert Fico, but all of us were labeled murderers,” the deputy prime minister, Mr. Kalinak, told a Czech newspaper on Saturday, referring to the case. “If I used the same yardstick now as they did then, I would say that they are murderers.”

Iveta Radicova, a sociologist opposed to Mr. Fico who is a former prime minister, said Slovakia’s woes were part of a wider crisis with roots that extend far beyond its early stumbles under Mr. Meciar.

“Many democracies are headed toward the black hole,” as countries from Hungary in the East to the Netherlands in the West succumb to the appeal of national populism, she said. “This shift is happening everywhere.”

Sara Cincurova and Marek Janiga contributed reporting from Bratislava, Slovakia.
