Despite being neighbors and Visegrad 4 allies, it is not often that a Slovak MEP stands up in defense of Hungary during a European Parliament debate. Yet this is what happened when Miroslav Radačovský, MEP for the Slovak Patriot party spoke out after the rule-of-law debate concerning Hungary on Wednesday.
“I disagree with the resolution of the European Parliament in relation to Hungary. There probably is not a state in Europe which could be immune from criticism of a violation of article 2. regarding the functioning of the EU. But you have chosen Hungary. Only Hungary, respectively Poland. Let us be frank: you are angry that despite the extensive EU campaign against Mr. Orbán and the Fidesz party, the citizens of Hungary have decided in democratic and free elections to repeatedly vote for a Christian conservative government. This an objective reality, an undeniable fact.
And now I will speak in Hungarian: My dear Hungarian friends, keep the faith! It is only a matter of time before the current Slovakian government falls. We will then fight the Brussels centralist elite together. Hungary and Slovakia, but there will be other countries as well. Hold your head high up, Hungary”, closed his words Miroslav Radačovský.
