After adding Fidesz MEP Andrea Bocskor, Ukrainian nationalist organization Myrotvorets has now also included László Brenzovics, the president of the Transcarpathian Hungarian Cultural Association (KMKSZ), on its list of “enemies of Ukraine.”
The editors of the website accuse him of, among other things, deliberately spreading manipulated information in society to incite hatred between nationalities, and of participating in the “aggressor disinformation operations of Russia and Hungary against Ukraine.”
Not more than a few weeks ago, Brenzovics’s home as well the headquarters of the Transcarpathian Hungarian Cultural Association were raided by Ukraine’s secret service in connection with charges of separatism. The association said the procedure was based on fabricated political charges.
A few days ago Fidesz MEP Andrea Bocskor’s name was also uploaded to the website. She has been accused of violating Ukrainian law by acquiring dual Hungarian-Ukrainian citizenship, and of “attacking Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.”
Initially, the Mirotvorec website only published data on those who played a direct role in Russia’s annexation of Crimea in 2014, as well as those involved in the war in Donbass against the Ukrainian army, or anyone cooperating with the separatist armed forces.
Two years ago, however, the organization started uploading the names and addresses of Transcarpathian Hungarians with dual Hungarian-Ukrainian citizenship to its public database.
Even Hungary’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szijjártó’s name has been added to their database for allegedly having “attacked Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” and interfering in the country’s domestic affairs, inciting and supporting separatist efforts in Ukraine.
