According to reports, a guy attacked Mette Frederiksen, the prime minister of Denmark, when she was strolling through the heart of Copenhagen, leaving her stunned and suffering from whiplash.

The lawmaker was attacked in a square in the old center of the city by a man who approached her and struck her.

Although the perpetrator was apprehended quickly, the motive remains unknown at this time.

It was described as a “despicable act, which goes against everything we believe in and fight for in Europe” by Ursula von der Leyen, the head of the European Commission.

Less than a month has passed since Slovak PM Robert Fico was shot many times while greeting supporters, and now there is an attack on another leader of Europe. After he made it through, he had surgery.

The local newspaper BT received a description of the incident from Marie Adrian and Anna Ravn, two witnesses, who said that “a man came by in the opposite direction and gave her a hard shove on the shoulder, causing her to fall to the side.”

Despite the “strong push,” they added, the prime minister did not fall and instead took a seat at a nearby café to gather herself.

According to Mette Frederiksen’s office, the lawmaker was “shocked” by the occurrence and was experiencing “minor whiplash”.

About the incident, a 39-year-old man is scheduled to appear at a hearing on Saturday afternoon at the Frederiksberg Courthouse.

Two days before Denmark’s voting in the EU election, there is an attack.

The head of the Social Democrats in Denmark, Ms. Frederiksen, had previously participated in an election-related event in Europe alongside Christel Schaldemose, the front-runner for her party.

The largest party in the coalition government of Denmark is the Social Democrats. Although they continue to lead the polls, in recent months their popularity has significantly decreased.

Magnus Heunicke, the Danish Minister of the Environment, stated on X: “Mette is obviously startled by the attack. It shocks those of us who are close to her, I must say.”

EU chief Charles Michel expressed his “outrage” on X.

“I strongly condemn this cowardly act of aggression,” he said.

Four years prior, Ms. Frederiksen, 46, had assumed leadership of the center-left Social Democrats and was appointed prime minister in 2019. She became Denmark’s youngest prime minister ever as a result.

She and then-President Donald Trump got into a fight shortly after she rejected his suggestion that the US purchase Greenland.

Mr. Trump referred to her as “nasty” when she branded the idea of a land purchase of this kind “absurd”.

A commission looking at her government’s decision to slaughter millions of mink during the Covid outbreak severely criticized Ms. Frederiksen in 2022.

Recently, GreatGameIndia reported that national media have stated the Prime Minister of Slovakia, Robert Fico, was shot in public by a 71-year-old poet and member of the pro-Western Progressive Party, Juraj Cintula.
