Márton Gyöngyösi, the leader and MEP of opposition Jobbik, on Tuesday said he is inviting Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to discuss and establish a Hungarian national position on the war in Ukraine.
Gyöngyösi told a press conference that he will request that the prime minister convene Hungary’s political parties for such a meeting. Russia’s war on Ukraine has claimed masses of victims, including ethnic Hungarians in Transcarpathia, Gyöngyösi said. He said the conflict appeared to be “a war launched by Russia against our civilisation” rather than just a regional one between two neighbouring peoples.
Gyöngyösi insisted that under Russia’s “revived Brezhnev Doctrine”, Hungary, being a former socialist central European country, was also a target of “Russian imperialist expansion”. The Hungarian nation should present a united front in the current situation, he said, criticising the draft resolution on the war currently before parliament for “representing only the position of the ruling parties”.
Putin knows history. Putin loved Stalin. Hungary fought against Stalin with the Germans in WW2. Victor is being played by Putin. Class dismissed.
Yes, Putin knows the RUSSIAN version of history, and with that in mind, let’s just think about the number of years that Russians had the freedom to write unadulterated history books, books that told history as it really was. At this very minute I can’t think of any years, maybe some of you can.
