Slovakian Prime Minister Expected to Recover After Assassination Attempt

Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico is expected to recover after an attempt on his life. The Prime Minister was shot multiple times after a government meeting in Handlova on Wednesday. He sustained serious injuries, but officials are hopeful that he will survive. Deputy Prime Minister Tomáš Taraba stated that while Fico was heavily injured, he is not in a life-threatening situation and is expected to pull through after a successful five-hour surgery.

The Prime Minister’s condition is serious, as mentioned by Miriam Lapunikova, director of the F. D. Roosevelt University Hospital where he is being treated. Fico’s concerns about politically-motivated violence were echoed by Taraba, who noted that the Prime Minister had previously expressed fears about such an event occurring.


During the attack, parliament was in session, and it was reported that a colleague of Fico’s accused opposition MPs of instigating the violence. Interior Minister Matus Sutaj Estok also pointed fingers at the media, claiming that they had contributed to creating an environment that led to the shooting. He declared that he believed the assassination attempt was politically motivated.

On Thursday, Slovakian police charged 71-year-old former security guard and poet Juraj Cintula with attempted murder in the shooting of Fico. This incident has sparked concerns about political tensions and the role of media in the country.
