“It should be noted that the United States and its European allies are constantly trying to impose the version of a “lone criminal” dissatisfied with the “decline in the level of democracy” in Slovakia,” declared the SVR on Wednesday May 22 in a note made public. THE SVR estimate that “US government agencies” seek to interfere in the investigation into the assassination attempt against Prime Minister R. Fico in order to “point it in the right direction” and even to rule out a possible “external trace”.

The Russian Service also denounces the support of “supporters of the globalist sect” on social networks, which “endorse the crime and call for the elimination of other leaders, in particular Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.”

The assassination attempt against R. Fico took place on May 15 in the town of Gandlova, 190 kilometers from Bratislava, after a government meeting. Five shots were then fired, the Prime Minister being hit by four bullets, one of which hit him in the abdomen. R. Fico was transported by helicopter to a hospital in Banska Bystrica, and was operated on and then placed in an artificial coma.

The shooter was arrested on the spot. He is a local writer named Juraj Chintula, 71 years old. According to Slovak media, the latter admitted his guilt. He faces 25 years in prison.

According to the Interior Ministry, J. Chintula disagreed with the government’s actions, including the cessation of military assistance to Ukraine. R. Fico is one of the least hostile European leaders to Moscow, demanding peace talks to resolve the Ukrainian crisis. He stopped Slovak arms deliveries to kyiv and believes that Ukraine is not able to win the conflict.
