Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán was reportedly listed as an enemy of Ukraine on the far-right website called Mirotvorec, crudely nicknamed the “death list.” The website presents the personal information of tens of thousands of individuals, such as their full name, date of birth, address, and passport number.
Mandiner reported that ever since the annexation of Crimea and the Russian occupation of Donbas, ultranationalist Ukrainians use Mitrovorec, and many similar digital spaces, to list their nation’s enemies. After the murder of the Russian politician Oleg Kalashnikov in 2015, the general population started referring to such sites as death lists. This is because the victims’ names were listed online before their passing.
The people operating the website could not have gained personal information without the help of Ukrainian internal security, specialists say. Actions of such sorts would heavily violate people’s rights: the Ukrainian government in Kyiv argues that they are unable to restrict the site because it is privately owned.
Unsurprisingly, such happenings would disturb many, some to the point of leaving their occupations.
HírTV detailed the event with the help of their correspondent György Dunda:
“In previous years, Hungarians have already suffered from the actions of Mirotvorec. Those who were thought to carry dual citizenship ended up on the site, especially if they worked or held higher positions in government offices or institutions. These individuals had their personal information leaked and consequently, some of them left their state positions due to fear. This also brought fear to people living in local Hungarian communities” – said Dunda.
“It is not only the Prime Minister who has been listed on the site: among others, politicians such as Minister of Foreign Affairs Péter Szijjártó, and President of the Hungarian Cultural Association László Brenzovics have been put on the so-called death list as well,” continued Dunda.
One can easily make a correlation between the listing of the Prime Minister and the ongoing Russian conflict in Ukraine.
Many do not understand why the Hungarian Government refuses to supply Ukraine with weapons.
Dunda says that “some Ukrainian circles set a double standard towards Hungary, especially if we take into consideration the immense humanitarian help that our nation has offered to alleviate the hardships of those who flee Ukraine due to the war.”
