Hungary by Atlatszo – Jet used by Orban flew to Belgrade a day after Gruevski announced that he is seeking asylum in Hungary
This is what Atlatszo wrote this week:
The plane registered as OE-LEM, after weeks of staying in one place, took off from Vienna early in the morning on Tuesday and landed in Budapest. Soon after that it took off again, flew to Belgrade and then returned to Budapest again.
The main point is who spent the money and where: the foundation that owns the soccer academy is led by Orban’s friend, Lőrinc Mészáros. And the contractor benefitting from many of the development projects, Fejér-B.Á.L. Zrt., is owned by Mészáros’s children.
4.2% of the Hungarian population was enrolled in some form of postsecondary studies in 2005, whereas only 2.9% was enrolled in 2016. Atlatszo visualized the related data published by the Hungarian Central Statistical Office.
Our investigative team was formed to counterbalance the propaganda of the atomic lobby and the lack of official information and offer comprehensive information about the ongoing nuclear projects, especially with respect to corruption and environmental risks.
Your reading list about what is going on in Hungary:
“Gruevski exited Albanian territory on 11 November as a passenger in a car owned by the embassy of Hungary,” a police statement released in Tirana said. Revealing the vehicle’s license plate, it said the car was owned by Budapest’s diplomatic mission in Albania.
Steve Bannon said he plans to work closely with the Hungarian prime minister Viktor Orban in the run-up to next year’s EP elections. Mr Bannon revealed that he had visited Budapest to speak to the far-right leader and his aides in meetings not previously made public.
Newly appointed Ambassador of Hungary to Ukraine, István Íjgyártó, was summoned to the MFA of Ukraine after Orban had said he saw no chance of coming to any kind of agreement with Ukraine’s “current political leadership.”
It marks a new low in relations between Hungary and the UN, which Budapest has accused of spreading lies about the country and harbouring a pro-immigration bias.
Expecting or fearing no backlash from the Hungarian side Russia could and did make Hungarian diplomacy a centerpiece of its disinformation against Ukraine, and this remains a possibility in the future as well.
