Orban continues to believe in Russia and not believe in Ukraine
The Hungarian Prime Minister believes that this is not about the complete conquest of Ukraine, as this will cause resistance from the population and a “guerrilla war”, but about the creation of a buffer zone approximately along the line of contact in the Donbass.
During a meeting with journalists in Budapest, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban outlined his vision of why Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine should not end anytime soon. An article about the meeting earlier this week was published in the German-language “liberal-conservative” publication Tichys Einblich.
“Orban is destroying the hope that Putin will sooner or later give up the war. After all, the presidential elections are approaching, and those who lost the war will not win the elections, even rigged ones,” Roland Tichi, the author of the article, retells the words of the Hungarian prime minister.
He also claims that Orban is not pro-Russian, as he is commonly believed, because “he says that he knows about the cruelty of the Russians, because in 1956 they hanged the then Prime Minister Imre Nagy.”
According to the Prime Minister of Hungary, Russia has historically demonstrated that at the beginning of wars it is weak due to “corruption, sloppiness, incompetence of commanders and terrible tactical mistakes”, but “very soon switches, mobilizes its forces and learns quickly”
Speaking about Russia’s goal in the war, Orban believes that it is not about the complete conquest of Ukraine (since this will cause resistance from the population and a “guerrilla war”), but about creating a buffer zone approximately along the line of contact in the Donbass.
“A kind of “death zone” between Western Ukraine and NATO on the one hand, and Russia on the other?” writes author Tichys Einblich and adds that Hungary’s position on an immediate ceasefire and negotiations is the best.
Along the way, he criticizes the US and the EU for the lack of a clear strategy for the war, “other than strengthening the justified resistance of Ukraine.” He adds that according to this logic, NATO will have to send its own troops to Ukraine if “sooner or later the men run out” there.
As previously reported, Hungarian Prime Minister Orban, at a meeting with journalists in Budapest, outlined his position on the current situation of the Russian-Ukrainian war, from which it follows that he does not believe in the victory of Ukraine and believes that it is gradually turning into an uncontrollable ruin, like Afghanistan .
