Media showed the moment of the assassination attempt on Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico (video)

According to journalists, the attacker turned out to be 71-year-old Slovak poet Juraj Chintula from the city of Levice. He had a permit to carry a gun.

Video of the assassination attempt on Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico has emerged. According to preliminary data, the politician was seriously injured. The video was published by Slovak publication Pravda.

According to Slovak media, Robert Fico was shot several times as he was leaving a government rest stop in the city of Gandlova. The person, who was injured in his abdomen and arm, was transferred by helicopter to a hospital in the town of Banska Bystrica.

A few hours after the assassination attempt on Fico, a message appeared on the official Facebook account stating that the injuries were life-threatening and that the next few hours would show whether the Slovak prime minister would survive. Slovak media had previously reported that the injuries were not dangerous.

In the government’s press release published by Reuters, it was stated that the prime minister’s life remained in danger.

Eyewitnesses of the incident said that many shots were fired during Fico’s opening to the public after the government meeting. It turned out that the attacker was 71-year-old poet Juraj Chintula from the city of Levice. He had a permit to carry a gun.

The assassination attempt against Robert Fico was condemned by local and foreign politicians. Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky described the attack on the 59-year-old politician as horrific and called for efforts to ensure that violence does not become the norm in any country.

Let us remember that the first details about the suspect in the assassination attempt on Fico were reflected in the media. It is known that the attacker once survived an assassination attempt. Juraj Chintula, author of several poetry collections, was working as a driver in a shopping mall in the city of Levice in 2016, when he was attacked by a man with an altered state of consciousness.

It was also reported that the media published images of the first moments in the city of Gandlova, where the assassination attempt on Robert Fico took place.
