    Orban is also expected to visit Russia in September, the official added. Hungarian news site Portfolio pointed out that the two leaders have already met twice over the last two months. Putin and Orban usually have one only official meeting per year in Moscow or in Budapest.

    Hungary’s prime minister also plans to attend the World Cup final.

    The pro-migration policy pursued by Brussels continue to be a threat, despite the growing number of states, leaders and voters voicing objections, the ruling Fidesz party’s parliamentary spokesman told a press conference recently.

    The European Parliament is serving George Soros’s interests, Janos Halasz said, He noted that EU organisations “under the influence of George Soros” kept forcing pro-migration policies. “Soros really seems to have his people everywhere … who insist on flooding Europe with migrants, the European public opinion notwithstanding,” he added.

    Hungary’s ruling parties say that “the Soros network is still pulling the strings in the European Parliament,” the parliamentary spokesman said.

    Another Hungarian member of parliament, Istvan Hollik on Thursday reminded his audience at a press briefing that the European Parliament has adopted a resolution saying that NGOs offering humanitarian assistance to migrants should not be punished for their actions by member states. Hollik said this “clearly shows” the continuing influence of Soros.

    He said the non-legislative resolution was welcomed in a joint letter by sixty MEPs immediately after its adoption. Among the letter’s signatories were “the author of the Soros report attacking Hungary”, Green MEP Judith Sargentini as well as the Democratic Coalition’s Peter Niedermueller.

    Hollik called the resolution identical to the goals of “the Soros network’s international pro-migrant campaign”, Welcoming Europe. He said it sought to legalise migration, making it a fundamental right and preventing member states from being able to penalise organisations supporting it.

    Illegal migration is a crime, which means organising and supporting it is too, Hollik added. He said this was why the Hungarian parliament had passed the “Stop Soros” package of laws. Hungary will stand by that legislation even if Soros and his allies in Brussels “launch another attack”, he concluded.
