    Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico was hospitalized on Thursday with suspected heart condition, local media reported.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the Slovak Dennik online news portal, Fico is undergoing examination procedures at the National Institute of Cardiovascular Disease. The prime minister traveled there by car, never calling an ambulance.

    Despite the reported absence of urgent condition, the prime minister has canceled his Thursday's visit to the Czech Republic.

    On Tuesday, Fico had already canceled an appearance at a court hearing for health reasons, although he attended a cabinet meeting on Wednesday.
