The world recognizes the shortcomings of the ultimate US leadership candidates.. The big question remains: How will the Americans deal…
No Word about Russia or Putin
Last UPDATED 18:06– All of you know for sure that Putin gave order to Russian military to attack Ukraine from all sides, including from Belarus and Crimea, no longer limited to unmarked military convoys in the separatist areas. Of course all Hungarian media are full of, including the regime media.
From the regime first a short message of foreign minister Szijjártó on facebook “War is the worst case scenario. The task now, as always, is to guarantee the security of the Hungarian people. Our embassy in Kiev is working and it is open for Hungarians in Ukraine. My staff will provide all assistance on site” at 5:42 ►HU this morning. At 7:25 Szijjártó took a video of 5:25 minutes, but one has to wait until 3:10 the minister starts talking. And he was able to talk for 2:15 about the war, Hungarians in Ukraine generally, and the Hungarian minority in Transcarpathia in detail. He said to stay with Ukraine and it’s territorial integrity. But not a single word about Russia or Putin, he succeeded completely in not mentioning who started this war ►HU.
Budapest lord Mayor Karácsony named the facts ►HU and started with “Putin has waged war in Europe, and it is the elementary duty of all members of Hungarian political community to condemn this Russian aggression both immediately and firmly, to stand up for Ukraine’s independence and sovereignty. We are bound not only by our choice of European values, but also by our responsibility for the Hungarians of Transcarpathia, and by the memory of 1956 and 1968 as well. For the Hungarian government, the peacock dance is over here and now. The Hungarian government must regain the capacity to act instead of being shackled by Viktor Orbán’s dealings with Putin and the pursuit of Russian interests and against Hungarian and European interests. This policy must end now.“
Independent MP Hadházy wrote: “Putin has waged a conquest war against Ukraine” and used a picture from 1956 telling “Russians go home” ►picture.
Péter Márki-Zay wrote ►HU: “In 1956, we learned what it was like when the Russians occupied an independent state. Now the same thing is happening before our eyes: Vladimir Putin’s Russia has attacked Ukraine. …. Orbán refuses to condemn the war launched by the Russians, he refuses to condemn Putin’s actions. …. We condemn the war started by the Russians, we stand up for Ukraine and the Hungarians in Transcarpathia!”
The regime media use the war to attack Unity for Hungary politicians for the intention of sending soldiers and weapons to Ukraine, while NATO members hardly would do so, not even Germany. While the politicians only are for staying loyal to our allies and none has talked about anything else but UN or NATO missions with Hungarian soldiers and the delivery of weapons is something all larger NATO members did with the exception of Germany.
And Orbán? Still now, 6 hours after Putin ordered this war he kept silence.
UPDATE 10:09 – Péter Jakab called Orbán Putin’s Trojan Horse ►HU, Gyurcsány Ferenc also took the word and wrote ►HU: “The Hungarian government, which has long pursued a special Russian policy different from the common Europeans, should not hide behind the skirt of Brussels now! Speak clearly, condemn the aggressor.” Still no further comment from the regime.
UPDATE 10:35 – All governments of the V4 have clearly sided with Ukraine in the war Russia began. All condemned Putin for his attack. All? No! Only Poland, Slovakia, and the Czech Republic did so ►HU. In the latter also former PM Babis, who was unseated half a year ago, did the same. And Hungary? Still nothing besides the statements of the foreign minister, who succeeded not to name Russia or Putin. Orbán is still silent.
UPDATE 10:58 – Unity for Hungary has issued a press statement, presented by Péter Márki-Zay. “Hungary as member of EU and NATO has to condemn the aggression of Putin, the president of Russia, against Ukraine. We the united opposition stand behind the territorial integrity of Ukraine and against the Russian aggression and for the protection of the Hungarian brothers living in Ukraine.” Bad enough, he said, we just have seen yesterday how Viktor Orbán attacked us, especially me, for standing against the unity of the NATO, while it was Viktor Orbán who stood against the interests of NATO, it must be said that Orbán committed treason. Viktor Orbán betrayed the Hungarian nation, Viktor Orbán betrayed the EU, and Viktor Orbán betrayed the NATO, when he installed the Russian spy bank including immunity, or when he sent weapon smugglers not to the USA who searched for them, but home to Putin. Bad enough we also now have to conclude that Orbán is standing against our European allies. “We call him not only to stay behind the closed rows of NATO, but also to pass the sanctions of the EU, to suspend the Paks 2 nuclear power plant development, and to send the spy bank out of Hungary.” Further he called to gather today at 7 o’clock in the evening in front of the Russian embassy to demonstrate against this war. https://www.facebook.com/markizaypeter/videos/671015504027820/
UPDATE 12:10 – Orbán has posted a picture of the national security council. The same council he spent some time together on Tuesday without telling the world anything. I found an article on 444 quoting the propaganda machine of the Orbán regime ►HU during the last weeks. Bayer for example with “Russia will not attack Ukraine, a fool knows that.” András Bencsik said: “America is pushing to provoke an armed conflict,” …. “but it doesn’t come together, because the Russians won’t jump on it.” At another time Bencsik said: “let’s not go wrong, the United States is terribly eager to start a local war here in Eastern Europe.”
UPDATE 12:54– The border crossing point to Ukraine in Beregsurány seems to be very busy with arrivals from Ukraine. The coward in the Várszínház is still hiding. When he froze the prices for chicken carcasses the announcement was prepared with a broad media campaign of a special announcement coming. And is war in our neighbour country indeed less important than chicken carcasses? I am afraid for Orbán the answer is yes.
UPDATE 13:07 – Telex has put together the information how the regime media looked like this morning, 4 hours after Putin told the Russians on TV that he ordered war on Ukraine: It didn’t happen at that moment ►HU. BTW: Dutch PM Rutte said earlier this morning that there are “2 responsible, these are Russian and it’s president Putin.” The Hungarian regime still refuses to take the words Russia or Putin in their mouths.
UPDATE 13:23 – Magyar Hang has news from the Várszínház ►HU. Orbán obviously has condemned that Putin has waged war, I am unable to report whether Orbán dared to use the words Russia or Putin.
UPDATE 13:40 – Indeed on Orbán’s facebook account a short video appeared and Orbán has spoken about a Russian attack ►HU. For why this took so long he had no explanation. All steps would be done together with the EU. From some stupid reasons he declared that no Hungarian soldiers or warfare equipment would be installed in Ukraine, stupid, since this never has been in the discussion. But of course he won’t accept the irresponsible claims of the left that would endanger our energy security. Overhead cut would be of highest importance. He expects refugees from Ukraine (yes, he said refugees, not migrants.)
UPDATE 18:06 – Right now I got information about the corona situation from the Hungarian government. Therein the regime claims that the opposition right now wants to send soldiers to Ukraine. Because I wanted to get my vaccine I needed to register, now the regime is bombing me with spam full of lies! Another disgusting act of the Putyin Pincsi in the Várszíház!
