MEP Tamás Deutsch said Hungarian left-wing MEPs are doing all they can to undermine their own country.
Speaking on public radio on Sunday, Deutsch accused Hungarian left-wing MEPs of spreading “the biggest possible lies” about the coronavirus epidemic. He also insisted that besides the Polish opposition led by Donald Tusk, Poland’s former prime minister, only Hungarian left-wing MEPs had taken “every opportunity … to snoop against their own country”. The Fidesz politician said Hungarian left-wing MEPs, when the seven-year EU budget was in the process of being adopted in 2019-2020, “worked with all their might to ensure their own country got as little EU funding as possible.”
Meanwhile, on the subject of the EU’s proposal regarding sanctions on Russian oil, Deutsch called the situation “serious and dangerous”. He accused the Hungarian left-wing in recent weeks of initiating the oil and gas sanctions instead of “championing the interests of the Hungarian people”. The Fidesz MEP said Hungarian left-wingers had always taken the side of Brussels rather than the Hungarian people in international debates. But now he asked all Hungarian left-wing MEPs “speak out against the oil embargo”.
