Viktor Orban: How Hungarian PM faces toughest EU election as six-party coalition gains

Date:


United For Hungary includes the DK, Jobbik, MSZP, Dialogue, LMP and Momentum parties under one umbrella led by conservative Péter Márki-Zay.

Together, they have urged the country to move away from Orban’s creeping move to the authoritarian right and embrace Europe, stating the incumbent leader is too aligned with the east.

Mr Orban has long served as one of Putin’s staunchest supporters within the EU and central Europe, a position from which he is meekly attempting to separate himself.

As Hungarian public opinion turns against Russia, he has drawn closer to the EU and NATO, supporting sanctions while condemning Putin’s advancement.

But, at the same time, Hungarian state broadcasters controlled by the Orban regime have regularly regurgitated Kremlin talking points and, at times, hosted experts who have openly attacked Volodymyr Zelensky.
