Liberation of Europe: Siege of Budapest

The Battle of Budapest (October 29, 1944 till February 13, 1945) was a great battle of WWII. The victory paved the way for liberation of Hungary, destruction of the Hitler’s coalition in Europe and blockade of German forces in the Balkans... The Soviet 2d and 3d Ukrainian Fronts were confronted by German Army Group South, part of Group Center and the army of Hungary, the last ally of Nazis in Europe... The Hungarian capital was encircled. Hitler ordered Obergruppenfuehrer-SS Karl Pfeffer-Wildenbruch to fight to the last. The storm started on December 26, 1944 to continue for the next two months. For comparison, Berlin was captured in two weeks...

The Hungarian Issue in Transcarpathia

In his book Ukraine at the Crossroads (2015), former Ukrainian Prime Minister Nikolai Azarov writes: «Essentially, Ukraine has never been a mono-national state. The Donetsk and Luhansk regions were different from the Kharkiv region, and the Zaporizhia and Dnepropetrovsk regions were different from the Sumy and Chernigov regions. And I am not even going to talk about Galicia and Transcarpathia. Ukraine as a unitary state is a constant source of conflict» . The fact that the unitary state structure of Ukraine has started to create a permanent civil conflict is confirmed by recent events. Yet the Ukrainian authorities are still obstinately insisting that «Ukraine was, is, and will be a unitary state»...

Hungary: Ukrainian Syndrome

A wave of street protests hit Hungary in 2015. Over 5 thousand people protested the policy of Prime Minister Victor Orban on January 2. The government has taken steps to strengthen ties with Russia recently... Gábor Vona, the leader of the Hungarian second largest political party Jobbik (the Movement for a Better Hungary)... believes that the situation in the country is extremely worrisome. Unstable Ukraine is a neighboring country. It complicates the things. Mr. Vona points out that the US special services clearly have a hand in organizing the recent street protests. Normally such activities are coordinated by the US embassy... Gábor Vona thinks that Washington will do its best to make Victor Orban change its course or topple him if the Prime Minister persists...

Hungary: Is Ukraine Style Coup Possible in EU and NATO Member-State?

The atmosphere is tense in Budapest. It’s not the first time anti-government protests hit the streets of the capital with people chanting “More Democracy!” and “Orban, Go Away!” The last demonstration took place on January 2. The next one is slated for February 1 – the day of Angela Merkel’s visit. The Victor Orban’s opponents say they want to make the German Chancellor see that Hungarians choose Europe, not Asia (meaning Russia)... The doctrine of Atlanticism prevailing among the ranks of US and European establishment makes the countries of Central and Eastern Europe – Hungary, the Czech Republic, Bulgaria, Serbia and Slovakia – keep away from the Eurasian vector of cooperation even when economic expediency is obvious. These states must align their activities with the goal of US domination in Europe... Hungary is in for dramatic events to take place pretty soon. Neither the NATO, nor EU membership guarantee the European states from attempts to topple legal governments in case they go beyond the defined limits of political independence.

Сhina - Europe: New Alliance? (II)

Hungary and Serbia are the main recipients of Chinese investments in Central and Eastern Europe. According to estimates, China has invested a few billions of euros in their economy. As of 2013, China invested €300 million in Poland and €114 million in Romania. ... Besides, in late October China took a decision to grant Montenegro a €687 loan to fund its part of the high-speed railway. At the same time, Beijing signed a preliminary agreement with Bosnia and Herzegovina on funding a 62-km highway. The goal is to build an integrated pan-Balkan transport infrastructure. Adding to the Piraeus port upgrade project, the Danube Bridge opening ceremony took place at the time of the China and Central and Eastern European Countries meeting.

After Ukraine: Are the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary Veering Off The NATO/EU Reservation?

Despite the firmness shown by the EU’sbiggest players when it comes to sanctioning Putin’s Russia, lower down the pecking order some member states are not happy. Unlike the most craven and obedient puppets — the Baltic States and Poland — it took some arm twisting to get the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Hungary to agree to punish Moscow for annexing Crimea. Each country is dependent for much of its energy on Russia with which there are also valued economic ties. Why rock the boat? Despite hyperbole claiming that Vladimir Putin was intent on taking them over and rebuilding the iron curtain, in reality, Russia has been an unproblematic neighbour for a quarter of a century.

Viktor Orban Threatened by Maidan-Style Protest Movement

...The Hungarian prime minister’s independence, including with regard to Russia, has long irritated both Brussels and Washington. Viktor Orban’s statements regarding his intention of finding allies in Europe capable of opposing the introduction of new sanctions against Russia together have not gone unnoticed. Western capitals have been particularly outraged by the fact that on 4 November 2014, the Hungarian parliament passed a law allowing the construction of the South Stream pipeline to take place in Hungary, despite the position of the European Commission...

The Situation in Transcarpathia Intensifies

Fears that Kiev is in a position to try and repeat the ‘Donbass Scenario’ in Transcarpathia do not seem to be without grounds. Consequently, those behind the Carpathian Mountains are talking about federalisation increasingly emphatically... The demands of the Rusyns and Hungarians in Transcarpthia are based on a solid legal foundation, and they share a common goal and a common threat. The common threat is Ukraine, and the situation is intensifying. There have been repeated instances of the destruction of Ukrainian state symbols in Uzhhorod and Mukachevo, explosions in the local offices of PrivatBank, and demonstrations by Transcarpathian residents against mobilisation for war – everything is leading to the fact that the issue of granting Transcarpathia the status of an autonomous federal entity could come to a head...

US Imposes Sanctions against Hungarian Citizens

...The US decision to impose sanctions against some Hungarian politicians, businessmen and tax officials has evoked a shock reaction in Budapest. Even the European Commission has not dared to do anything similar, no matter it has many times accused Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban of violating EU regulations and standards. No wonder! There is something important at stake – the fate of the most important endeavor ever undertaken since the Second World War. The goal is to use sanctions and other means of pressure to subjugate Russia and make it serve the vital interests of the West. Hungary has happened to be a «weak link» among the European Union’s ranks...

New Сracks in the anti-Russian Front

The anti-Russian colours that the policies of the European Commission and the US administration are painted in regarding the introduction of economic sanctions against Russia are slowly losing their lustre and beginning to peel off. Within the European Union there are pockets of internal resistance to the anti-Russian policy that are particularly noticeable against the feverish attempts by Brussels to force Serbia and other countries, where the mirage of joining the EU still seems to be a bit like reaching the Promised Land, to join in with the sanctions...
