Days after an assassination attempt on Slovakia’s conservative pro-Trump Prime Minister Robert Fico, he appears to be recovering well.

According to the hospital in Banska Bystrica where he is being treated, Fico’s condition is now stable and no longer life-threatening.

“After today’s medical board meeting, the patient’s condition is stable,” the hospital in the central Slovak town of Banska Bystrica wrote on Facebook. “He is clinically improving, communicating, and his inflammatory markers are gradually decreasing. The Prime Minister remains in our care.”

Deputy Prime Minister Robert Kalinak also stated over the weekend that Fico’s surgeries are “beginning to bear fruit” and he may eventually be able to return to work.

“I can’t find words of gratitude for the fact that we are steadily approaching that positive prognosis,” he said, although maintained that Fico’s condition remains “really serious.”

“Certainly, it does not allow us to make such a transfer in the near future — that is, at the end of the weekend,” he added on the possibility of transfering him back to Bratislava.

The assassination attempt came just days after Fico formally and publicly rejected The WHO Global Pandemic Accord. Fico has also repeatedly stated that he would stop sending weapons to Ukraine.

The attacker has been identified as 71-year-old Juraj Cintula, a leftist writer with a history of involvement in various political movements.
