Far right parliamentary party Our Homeland and other radical organizations began their commemoration of the anniversary of the Treaty of Trianon in front of the Ukrainian Embassy on Saturday, reports Telex. About 300 people, mostly in camoflage and the garb of Hungary’s nationalist radical groups, gathered to listen to extremist speakers give their opinion on the war in Ukraine and other topics.
Ukraine should “eat what it has cooked,” and in light of the war, Ukrainians should consider whether it was a good idea to oppress their minorities.
-said Gábor Barcsa-Turner, co-leader of the Sixty-Four Counties Youth Movement (HVIM) at the event.
Zsolt Tyirityán, a self-professed neo-Nazi, spoke on behalf of the Outlaw Army. Tyirityan claimed that the cause for the war was Ukraine’s campaign of genocide against the Russians. He also said that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky threatened Putin with nuclear weapons, forcing the Russian president to start a preemptive war.
The featured speaker at the event was László Toroczkai, President of Our Homeland and leader of the party’s parliamentary group. In his 20-minute-long speech, Toroczkai pledged support for Russia to join the European Union, and said the Ukrainians need to learn from Hungarians how to ask for things nicely.
Following the speeches, a large part of the crowd marched to the Church of St. László, where a more traditional commemoration of the signing of the Treaty of Trianon took place. [Telex]
