Media in Slovakia Starts Considering Ukraine Connection in Fico Shooting

Elements of the Slovakian media are starting to whisper about a potential Ukrainian connection to the alleged assassin who attempted to kill Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico last week.

Initially, it was reported that the alleged shooter, 71-year-old pensioner Juraj Cintula acted as a “lone wolf” when he shot the prime minister four times, nearly killing him. However, authorities in Slovakia announced that they are now considering the “more likely” scenario that he was working with a group.

“It seems more likely the attack was coordinated with some group,” Slovak Interior Minister Matúš Šutaj-Eštok said on Slovakian television on Tuesday. “We are working with the fact that it was not a lone attacker, but that something was going on behind it, which we are trying to clarify.”

The comments came after Slovak authorities revealed that Cintula’s Facebook communications and history were deleted four hours after the attack and that he nor his wife, described as “tech-illiterate” did it.
