Slovak defense minister talks about Fico’s recovery

Bratislava, Jul 1 (Prensa Latina) After the assassination attempt, the health of Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico is improving and will return to work soon, Defense Minister Robert Kaliniak wrote on on Monday.

Kaliniak affirms that Fico still has some problems with his musculoskeletal system after several bullet wounds, and this will not prevent him from appearing in public.

Fico repeatedly opposed arms supplies to Ukraine and its North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) membership. On May 15, an attacker shot him five times.

The gunman was arrested. Fico was taken to hospital, where he was released in late May.

The Interior Ministry, in turn, affirms that the shooter fired Fico solely for political reasons and is currently serving a life sentence.
