Doctors say Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico is stable but critical after being shot several times on Wednesday.

According to the hospital director, he is currently in an intensive care unit following a five-hour surgery.

Earlier, there were reports that Mr. Fico, 59, was in critical condition following a serious assault in the small town of Handlova.

A suspect has been apprehended at the location where the shooting occurred.

Miriam Lapunikova, the director of F. D. Roosevelt University Hospital in Banska Bystrica, held a press conference to provide an update on Mr. Fico's condition. She expressed grave concern, stating that his condition is indeed very serious.

In a previous statement, Deputy Prime Minister Tomas Taraba informed the TGE that Mr Fico's surgery was deemed successful, expressing optimism about his recovery.

According to Interior Minister Matus Sutaj Estoka, the incident is being characterized as a politically motivated assassination attempt.

Mr Fico's stance on ending military aid to Ukraine and lifting sanctions on Russia has made him a polarizing figure both domestically and within the EU.

The shooting has garnered widespread condemnation, with many describing it as an assault on democracy.
