The opposition Socialists (MSZP) are drafting a program to combat Russian influence in Hungary, Socialist MEP candidate Barnabás Mester said at a press conference on Saturday.
Mester said state institutions, “in the manner of traitors”, are doing nothing to fight Russian influence, thus the task falls to the opposition.
The Socialists will launch research together with international institutions on Russian influence and then publish the results, he said.
