Budapest (MTI) – Bence Rétvári, state secretary at the human resources ministry, attended the unveiling ceremony of a monument erected to pay tribute to Hungarians deported to the Soviet Gulag from Budapest’s 19th district, on Friday.

In his address, Rétvári said that violence and humiliation were at the core of communism, an ideology which was “no different from any other totalitarian regime; national socialism and international socialism or communism have the same core.”

Rétvári noted that some 800,000 Hungarians were deported to the Soviet Union right after the second world war.
