Budapest (MTI) – A gala performance was held at the Hungarian State Opera in Budapest to mark the 60th anniversary of the failed anti-Soviet uprising on Sunday evening.
The gala was attended by President János Áder, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, and House Speaker László Kövér.
Before the performance, Human Resources Minister Zoltán Balog said in his address that a people must fight for their freedom, self-determination, and rule of law. He warned that the fight is incessant for those values and noted that each people should have the right to determine their own fate.
The message of 1956 also suggests that “rich countries should not pass decisions over the less prosperous”, Balog added.
