Sad but honestly not surprising.

There's so much polarization going on left and right so its only matter of time before something like this happens.
Add in year after year of austerity measures and Income inequality and some people become desperate and very vulnerable to extreme views.

It's gonna be very interesting how this plays out. He is probably the most Pro-Russia Prime Minister in the EU right now and there are a lot of potential motives for this.

In terms of policy, my impression is that Hungary under Orbán is more-favorable than Slovakia under Fico.

Only because Orban has headstart. After Fico came to power this time, we were screaming away on the road paved by Orban

A little far from Sarajevo to start a world war, but still... oh oh...

Isn’t this how ww1 started?

Not exactly. A big part of that was the web of treaties and alliances. Today it's mostly just NATO or Russia.

A big part of WWI is that the web of treaties and alliances were all secret, as in classified information by each country.

NATO is not a secret. The membership roster and terms and conditions are known to all, including potential adversaries like Mr. Putin. This has a major effect on stabilizing international relations because nobody has to guess what NATO would do.

Despite his rhetoric, we know that Putin understands how NATO works, because he has been pulling materiel out of Kaliningrad. This leaves the Russian exclave extremely vulnerable to an invasion from NATO territory. But Putin is not worried about that, probably because he actually trusts NATO to follow the NATO charter.
