The Hungarian Workers’ Party believes that Ukraine is a fascist state, Volodymyr Zelenskyy must end his military operation, and that everyone sending anything to help Ukraine out is just being hypocritical, said party leader Gyula Thürmer at the party’s May 1 anti-war demonstration, as reported by Azonnali.
The participants marched from Kodály Circus to the Ministry of Defense’s building on Lehel Road. The openly pro-Russian party’s event drew about 150-200 participants, many of whom displayed anti-EU and NATO banners.
Towards the end of the march, another speaker shared his views by loudspeaker, including assertions that Ukrainian President Zelenskyy had been trained by the CIA and that he was Jewish.
When several participants protested that there was nothing wrong with being Jewish, the speaker corrected himself and from that point on referred to Zelenskyy as a Freemason. [Népszava]
