Hungary: Orban praises right-wing parties in Europe as peacemakers

Hungary is pursuing a pro-Russian course under Viktor Orban. In the capital, the head of government is stressing the importance of right-wing parties for a possible end to the war in Ukraine – and is promoting a conspiracy narrative.

In the European election campaign, Hungary’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban has praised right-wing parties as those who could bring about an early end to the Russian war against Ukraine. With the rise of right-wing and right-wing populist parties in Europe and the possible victory of Donald Trump in the presidential election in the USA, these forces would create a “transatlantic peace coalition”, the right-wing populist said on Saturday at an election rally in front of more than 10,000 supporters in Budapest.

“At the beginning of the year we were still in the minority, by the end of the year we could be in the majority in the entire Western world,” Orban continued. The head of government, who has been in office since 2010, has made Hungary the most Moscow-friendly country in the EU. He has repeatedly prevented or watered down the Union’s sanctions resolutions against warring Russia with threats of veto. Hungary is therefore largely isolated in the EU.

There must be a quick ceasefire and peace negotiations in the war started by Russia, Orban demanded. Otherwise there is a risk of a third world war and with it the annihilation of Hungary. The “war camp” that wants to push the Western world into an armed conflict against Russia is currently dictating at the EU headquarters in Brussels. The driving force behind this is the US philanthropist George Soros, who supports civil society actors around the world. Soros has been working “for 30 years” to drag the West into a war against Russia in order to subsequently replace the millions of fallen men with “migrants”, said Orban. In reality, Soros has no such plans; their allegation is part of a conspiracy narrative.

Orban’s ruling party Fidesz is the favorite in the European elections on June 9. It is unclear to what extent the new Tisza party of former Fidesz insider and Orban challenger Peter Magyar will be able to steal votes and seats from it.
