Fico, who suffered multiple gunshot wounds, was quickly rushed to the hospital in a critical condition.

The assault on the populist prime minister, who has been in office since last year and has been accused of being sympathetic to Kremlin interests, was immediately denounced by EU leaders.

The government confirmed the assassination attempt in an official statement on social media, outlining the immediate crisis response. Fico’s injuries were serious, requiring prompt medical intervention.

Given the significant distance to the capital, Bratislava, he was airlifted to Banska Bystrica for emergency treatment. The severity of the incident was acknowledged by authorities, including police spokesperson Matej Neumann.
