The attempted assassination of former Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico has plunged Slovakia into political chaos and exposed deep divisions within the society. Allegations, threats, and fears have escalated, with allies of Fico blaming liberal media and opposition for the attack.

The incident has sparked a wave of fake news and disinformation, fueling tensions and speculation about international involvement. In response, efforts for unity and de-escalation, including a significant political gesture by the Slovak presidency, aim to ease the turmoil.

However, concerns loom about potential benefits to far-right parties in the upcoming EU elections and broader implications for political stability in Europe.
