Boris Filatov, mayor of Dnipro, took Orbán’s statement to heart. The politician was commenting on the Hungarian PM’s statement in which he compared Ukraine to Afghanistan and called it a no man’s land. Besides, that was not the first statement of Viktor Orbán which caused scandal.
“First of all, bitchface, no man’s land is not ours, it’s yours. We have been living here for thousands of years, we are not from the Urals,”
the mayor of Dnipro begins his message on his Telegram page. According to index.hu, Boris Filatrov said “it takes a special talent to be hated everywhere from Romania and Slovakia to Serbia and Ukraine. The Treaty of Trianon is, after all, a punishment for your historical meanness.”
“Get out from under the umbrella of EU and NATO, and we’ll take you bastards out in three days. F**king bastards. No, not the Hungarian people. The bastards are the ones in power over there.”
PM Orbán’s disparaging remarks have also prompted a referral to Hungary’s ambassador in Kyiv. Foreign Ministry spokesman Oleg Nikolenko said the Hungarian prime minister’s disparaging statements about Ukraine were totally unacceptable. He said Hungary is deliberately damaging Hungarian-Ukrainian relations.
The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesman was reacting to what Viktor Orbán said behind closed doors, when he hosted a closed-door meeting of foreign journalists at the Mathias Corvinus Collegium. In the long run, Kyiv cannot win despite all Western help. The Russians regularly start wars weakly, but then, they correct errors and become unstoppable. Therefore, Ukraine’s successes are in vain. The prime minister said he believed that Russia’s goal now was to turn Ukraine into an “ungovernable wreck”, and that it had succeeded.
“It is now like Afghanistan. No man’s land,”
the prime minister said of Ukraine, according to a reporter for The American Conservative.
As a result, Ukraine summoned the Hungarian ambassador to Kyiv. He had to answer why Viktor Orbán thinks Russia aims to make Ukraine an ungovernable pile of debris.
The step was also commented by Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó. “The consequences of war are that thousands of people die and whole regions of the country become desolate. This is why Hungary wants peace and an immediate ceasefire instead of arms transfers. This has been Hungary’s clear position since the beginning of the war,” he said. Hungary does not want to get involved in the war, neither in words nor in deeds.
According to hvg.hu, from the 15 foreign journalists in the closed-door meeting, someone asked the prime minister if he wanted Hungary to stay in the EU. “Definitely not!” he said, adding that the country has no choice, because 85 percent of the exports are within the EU.
Later, the text was amended to say that while it is personally painful for Orbán that Hungary is a member of the European Union because of the constant harassment from the EU, there can be no question of remaining a member because Hungary’s economic well-being depends on it.

Orban is no different to Lukashenko, two puppets with Putin as the puppeteer.
Hungary be FURTHER AWOKEN by this article.
We the citizens of Hungary, it is us, through this DICTATORIAL Government, led by Victor Orban, the continuation of absolute demoralization of our PROUD name Hungary, that he Orban and his Government continue to Abuse & Insult us and Hungary.
Europe in GROWING numbers they are NOT angered at us – the citizens of Hungary, for they KNOWN – the PATH – the behaviour and agenda – the “Vile” reputation that grows on the image personally of Victor Orban, that throughout Europe, exclude Russia – that factually sees him – as un-trusted and a disliked individual.
WHAT is the FACE – the image ADAPTED – expressed of Hungary in Europe & Globally?
We have and it continues MASSIVE relationship HORRENDOUS problems & challenges – to retain, stay in the Family of European Country’s – the European Union.
Forces and facts grow, that give ever increasing “Vibes” that are clear cut in Singles – that through Victor Orban – the arrogant and opinionated individual he is, rapidly accelerating bought on, created by the Orban led Government, that the EXPELSION of Hungary from the Family of European Country’s “strengthens” in being high in probability that it will occur.
The growing and mounting FORCES, like the Facts and POWER of the words contained within this article, we Hungarians – we are being SMASHED by this Government, but outside Hungary – the citizens of Hungary, there is compassion, concern frustration – that Victor Orban – can without OPPOSITION – continue this “Shaping & Moulding” of Hungary, the process of expelling of DEMOCRACY, and Govern our country Hungary – as a Communistic Dictatorship.
If we are EXPELLED from the European Union or decide to Stand Alone – deepening our relationship with Russia & China – who would INVEST in Hungary?
Is our FUTURE perilous?
Could be grounds to suggest the answer is Yes, but the one certainty in ALL of this present Horrendous and cataclysmic MESS – as a country – Economically & Financially, look at EDUCATION – our relationships, excluding Russia & China – our IMAGE – our REPUTATION – through Victor Orban & his Government – will worsen.
Hungarians – we are behaving in a STRANGULATION – a Paralyzed behavioural fashion, that is like LEMMINGS – just follow on, that the Pied Piper – the leader of us – the Lemmings – is none other than Victor Orban.
Lemmings to the cliff face they follow, and just “Follow the Leader” – that sees there END.
Hungary – we have MASS thinking of our FUTURE, that time, is near perilously near – in – if we want to OBJECT – to the Hungary, under Orban that we are at present, or continue DOWN that road we are on, that is will be muchly reminiscent – of the Hungary, millions still remember pre 1989.
As a first generation Canadian/Hungarian I try to keep close to Hungarian information about the country, culture and politics as much as I can. It is a shame what the eu is doing to my motherland. It is sad that the US hedgemony controls the eu, as if the politician’s there can’t even think for themselves, and how much damage is being done to european countries, and how dangerous the world has become. Do not think for a moment that Canada is any better, we have a semi authoritarian government here constantly using the term democracy to brain wash it’s citizens, although we haven’t had true democracy here for decades. We are subservient to the US hedgemony as well. Our freedom to speak freely is being challenged with censorship, our living standards and wages have been suppressed since the early eighties. The oligarchy and lobbyists are no different than in the eu. I can go on and on about my birth country. What I’m saying is that I do admire your government. At least their trying to keep the Hungarian identity. Very hard to do these days in this upside down world.
Victor Orban has balls, you can’t say that of the rest of the European leaders, they are weak and they follow the warmongers in the Pentagon.
You do not read this in MSM news, Transcarpathia, the home of 150.000 ethnic Hungarians, Zelensky is now there forcibly recruiting men for the war front.
This bloody war in Ukraine could have been avoided if the west had followed the Minks accords which in 2014, but it was ignored, openly acknowledged by German chancellor Angela Merkel and French President at that time Francois Hollande, all this to buy time for the Ukrainian to develop further the Ukrainian defense system. And the real purpose of this war where the west is using Ukraine as a ‘proxy’ is to gain power in the Kremlin.
No, Borys Filatov begins his OPEN LETTER (TO ORBÁN!) on Telegram with:
So, to ME, that IS directed directly at Orbán and Orbán only.
Personally, I can understand some Ukrainians getting hot under the collar, showing outrage at our PM’s leaked press-confrence details, they are after all sitting under constant bombing and our very own PM is making disparaging remarks/speeches about them.
I’m sure Borys Filatov wrote what he wrote in the heat of the moment. On the other hand, Orbán’s MCC closed-door press-confence statement did not come in the heat of the moment.
Both of them should’ve kept their thoughts to themselves.
Are people so accustomed to the lying psychopaths who rule the world that now telling the truth is “scandalous”? What did he say that is not true? If Europeans keep on this road, they will be led like sheep to the slaughter, by American neocons, into being the battleground for another world war. Hungarians are so fortunate to have the government they do, which protects Hungarian lands, tradition, values, culture, energy supplies and keeps you out of war! Factions in the United States government, like Victoria Nuland Kagan, are responsible for the current situation in Ukraine and. believe me, she and the other neocons do not care if Europe is destroyed in the process. She said it, herself, “F— the EU”. You must protect yourselves from these forces and that means not getting dragged into the abyss that these monsters have opened up. Russia would not even be in Ukraine had it not been for the mass murder of the people in Donbass that began in 2014 (did you care about that?). Context matters and the corrupt gangsters that run Ukraine (and steal it’s people blind) are in bed with the US & UK whose interests and objectives will not benefit Hungarians. NATO will not protect you, Brussels sure as hell will not protect you but you have a government who is doing everything possible to do it so recognize and appreciate that. It can all be lost a lot faster than you can imagine is possible.
Every major infrastructure improvement came to Hungary because of the EU. Highways, airports etc. He want to leave now that the free money is being monitored. He will continue to bleed the people of Hungary until he can escape himself. You see it in our “deal” to pay the highest price in Europe on our gas from Russia. We pay the highest price in Europe for our benzine from Russia. This will continue until he has reduced Hungary to a mass of under educated people (by starving the schools and teacher) and sub standard medical care from our falling down facilities. His friends can all afford private care and private schools, but we can not! Now he is directly supporting the maniac Putin with his comments and vetos. When does it stop? When does the voters see this??
The Hungarians have voted in majority for this government – they had the chance to make a change but the only found the excuse there is nobody else to vote for.
I was living there for the past years and I have never seen such a racist, ultra-nationalist mentality in many parts of this world. I had work colleague who left because they couldn’t take anymore the “culture” (or rather lack of it)
Hungarians are as corrupted as Orban with the same mindset and historically – this nation always got what it deserved – Trianon was too soft on them.
Those who were normal people, left the country and what remained is a crumbling state: broken roads, stadiums, expensive low quality food, collapsed education and health system.
When I hear Hungarians complaining about Orban, I don’t feel anymore sorry for them – you had your chance several times, but like always you sold your humanity for a petty cash Viktor used to buy his electorate, for ultra nationalist speeches of Great Hungary (Hungary was never great, mediocre at best).
You reap what you saw – it looks like you never learned anything from history and the future does not look bright for you.
There’s a total lack of moral compass in Orban’s foreign policy. He has gone from requesting Putin’s victims to cease fire to claim that “sanctions don’t work”, when it fact that’s precisely Russia’s talking point to pretend they’re unfaced but the sanctions. Hungary’s foreign minister is even parroting the left’s narrative when it comes to sanctions against the Cuban regime. He now calls it “blockade”. Only God knows what the hell they’re thinking in Budapest.
Orban is my man!!!!
PM Viktor Orban is one of the few sane voices on the world stage. He speaks the truth and he is disparaged for out-of-context remarks. Hungary is blessed to have such a leader. If only we in the USA could do likewise…
Winston Churchill: “Americans can always be trusted to do the right thing, once all other possibilities have been exhausted.”
Hungarians voted for Orban with every chance. All those born-again Yankees and convenience Hungarians won’t be missed any more than the White Western collaborators fleeing Russia will be missed. Hungary will bloom after Russian forces completely destroy any Bandera Nazi with cheap Russian energy and other basic resources fuelling their economy. They will have the resources to transition to renewable power. The rest of Europe will watch their leadership fly to Washington and get down on their knees to adore Empire.
Noam Chomsky: ”Any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience of the U.S. Media.”
H. L. Mencken (1880 – 1956): “Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American public.”
William Casey (CIA Director 1981-1987): “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”
Vladimir Putin, July 7, 2022: “We hear today that they want us to be defeated on the battlefield. Well, what can I say? Let them try. We haven’t even really started anything yet.”
Winston Churchill (1944): ”I have left the obvious, essential fact to this point, namely, that it is the Russian Armies who have done the main work in tearing the guts out of the [Nazi] army.”
If an international system is dominated by an hegemonic power, then no nation has a republican form of government. Why? Because if a nation elects a government, or enacts policies the hegemon’s ruling class sees as a threat to its interests, that democratic government will be sanctioned, weakened and, eventually overthrown. It does not matter if a nationalist or communist government grants major benefits to its own population, the interests of the hegemon comes first. A government is classified as open, or democratic if it prioritizes the interests of hegemon’s ruling class over the interests of its own citizens.
