“God rest Mikhail Gorbachev”, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Saturday, in a video uploaded to Facebook from Moscow where he travelled to attend the funeral of the former party secretary of the Soviet Union.
Orbán has placed “flowers of respect, in the name of Hungary,” at the bier. “A lot had to come together for us to free ourselves from the Soviet Union and Communism without blood and human sacrifice. It would not have been possible without Mikhail Gorbachev. Not like this, without blood and in peace,” he said.
“We came and brought the flowers of respect out of gratitude to him. God bless and may he rest in peace!”, Orbán said.
