The Hungarian government denied supplying weapons to Ukraine, an allegation that was published by website hidfo.net and the Russian foreign ministry. The Socialist party called for convening the parliament’s national security and foreign affairs committee as soon as possible, while the credibility of the original news source remains doubtful.
Ruling party Fidesz told news agency MTI on Sunday that MSZP (Hungarian Socialist Party) called for the hearings of Minister of Interior Sándor Pintér, Csaba Hende Minister of Defense and Mihály Varga Minister for National Economy to investigate facts and to clear up any misunderstandings caused by Friday news.
Moscow, commenting on the sources of hidfo.net said “weapons to Kiev from Hungary are in clear violation of Budapest’s previous commitments on not exporting conventional military tech”. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade in response to these allegations published a statement, denying the fact of military supplies and debunking the article of hidfo.net, labeling it a simple hoax.
Ruling Fidesz party did not support the Socialist party’s initiative to convene parliament’s national security and foreign affairs committees over the allegations, accusing the Socialist party of jeopardizing the prestige of the Hungarian parliament over the hoax of a website of dubious origin.
