On Monday, four parliamentarians from the opposition faction "Momentum" splashed the fence around the office of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban with blood-colored paint.

This was reported by the political group on Facebook.

 

 

They explained their actions by accusing the Prime Minister of once again neglecting and forgetting the heroes of the 1956 revolution, which was suppressed by Soviet soldiers, and whose memory Hungary honors today.

 

 

"He challenged them, smiling with Putin a few days before the (anniversary day) October 23. With a war criminal who inserted into Russian textbooks that there was a "fascist" revolution in 1956 (in Hungary), and on whose orders Russian soldiers are once again killing Hungarian soldiers in Transcarpathia," explain the parliamentarians.

 

 

Background: In October 1956, the Hungarians rose in revolt against the Soviet rule, which had oppressed their country for a long time at the hands of the Communist Party. Soviet forces quelled the revolution in two weeks; around 2,500 Hungarians died, including Imre Nagy, whom the insurgents had demanded to be appointed as the head of the government and who was later executed.
