Addressing a March 15 national holiday commemoration in front of Parliament on Tuesday, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said: "We won't allow the left wing to drag Hungary into war." PM Orbán declared that voters who wanted peace and security would cast their ballots for the ruling Fidesz-led alliance in the April 3 general election.
According to MTI, PM Orbán insisted that the left wing had “lost their common sense” and “they would sleep-walk” into a “cruel, lengthy and bloody war”. He accused the left wing of planning to send Hungarian soldiers and Hungarian weapons to the war in Ukraine. “We will not allow it. We will not allow the left wing to drag Hungary into this war. We will not allow the left wing to make Hungary a military target and to make Hungarians and ethnic Hungarians in Transcarpathia military targets,” he added. Referring to the recent presidential election, PM Orbán said the timing of Hungary’s election of a woman president had been “perfect”. He cited the incoming head of state, Katalin Novák, as saying that women “want to win peace, not war”. “If we want to put an end to war and if we want Hungary to stay out of the war, we must listen to women,” he said. “Mothers know that it takes twenty years to raise a man, but a man can be destroyed in twenty seconds,” he said.
