Attila Demkó, a well-known Hungarian author, security policy expert and former diplomat, shared the number of Hungarians who died in the hell of the Eastern Front in Ukraine, fighting against Russian aggression.
According to his Facebook post, since the start of the 24 February Russian invasion, a dozen Hungarians soldiers have died in Ukraine’s defence. If we take 2014, the start of the deadly fight in Eastern Ukraine, as a start, that number rises to approximately 20. Interestingly, the number of Hungarian citizens is higher because many Ukrainians gained Hungarian (EU) citizenship utilising the loopholes of the relevant Hungarian rules and with the help of corrupted Hungarian officials.
He also said that most Transcarpathians dead in the East are Ukrainians because, at the beginning, they volunteered, while the national minorities remained at home.
He wrote in the post that each side would lose in this war.
Demkó is an author under the pen name David Authere. His bestseller novel Máglyatűz (‘Bonfire’, in English: The Fury of the Tsar) deals with a possible Russian penetration and hybrid warfare using national minorities in Central and Eastern Europe.
Fully 5,375 refugees entered Hungary at the Ukraine-Hungary border on Friday, while 5,329 came to the country via Romania, according to the national police headquarters (ORFK). Police issued temporary residence permits valid for 30 days to 96 people, ORFK said on Saturday. Fully 120 people, 23 children among them, arrived by train in Budapest.
