The parliamentary factions of the ruling parties have so far been unable to make a decision in favor of Sweden joining NATO, because they are waiting for an explanation on the film made about Hungary by Swedish public television, the leader of the Fidesz faction said at a press conference held during a break in the meeting of the ruling parties in Esztergom on Thursday.
Máté Kocsis said they had taken up the suggestion of the head of the prime minister’s office, Gergely Gulyás, and watched the film about Hungary on Swedish state television, which contained “shocking lies.”

The politician stressed that the program also features one of the “best-known radical left activists,” Márton Gulyás, but it forgets to inform viewers that he is the political opponent of the current Hungarian ruling parties.
As we reported
earlier, Sweden will show a video depicting Hungary as an authoritarian state and human rights violator in schools to support the lessons. The video, containing insulting and misleading accusations against Hungary, was commissioned by UR, the Swedish education portal, and has been approved for screening in schools.
The parliamentary group leader added that it is completely incomprehensible to them “how the Swedes can believe that the Hungarian Parliament and the two factions will enthusiastically support Sweden’s NATO accession after such actions.” “I do not think that a reasonable person would do such a thing,” he remarked.
We are waiting for an explanation from the Swedes on how they come up with what they say about Hungary in the film,
he added. According to Kocsis, the Swedes have apparently decided not to join NATO, and the biggest obstacle to this is the Hungarian left.
“We think it is necessary to clarify this new issue. As if the flood of lies that Swedish politicians have indulged in so far was not enough, now there is also this film that was made with false and discrediting intentions and for political purposes, obviously for the political goals of the Hungarian left,” the politician explained.
