SOCIALISTS DRAFT PROGRAMME AGAINST RUSSIAN INFLUENCE IN HUNGARY

 

The opposition Socialists are drafting a programme to combat Russian influence in Hungary, Socialist MEP candidate Barnabás Mester said at a press conference. Mester said state institutions, “in the manner of traitors”, are doing nothing to fight Russian influence, thus the task falls to the opposition. The Socialists will launch research together with international institutions on Russian influence and then publish the results, he said. He said the relocation of the headquarters of the International Investment Bank (IIB), which he called “Putin’s Trojan horse”, from Moscow to Budapest is an example of Russian influence in Hungary.
