    Referring to US financier George Soros, Orban branded Soros as “the world’s number-one oligarch” who was “financing NGOs, groups, activists” in “mafia-like networks”.

    In his regular Friday morning interview to public broadcaster Kossuth Radio, the prime minister said Soros-funded organisations were involved in “migration consulting” while “Soros-funded politicians for rent” were in favour of migration.

    Commenting on an attempt by migrants on Tuesday to break through the border, he suggested that the attempt had been planned in advance.

    “If you don’t see that, you have to be blind. […] There are men of military age who are in good physical shape and have been prepared.”

    The recordings clearly show that there were no women and children among the migrants, only “military-age men in good physical condition”, he said. So it is clear they “weren’t blown here by the wind”.

    Border protection and the fight against migration are the most important current European and Hungarian issues, he said, adding that he was making efforts to convince decision-makers that the European Union budget allocation for border protection should be given directly to member states rather than to the common EU border protection body.

    So far the EU “has given less than a pittance” to Hungary for border protection despite the fact that the work done also benefits the Austrians and the Germans, he added.

    The organisations financed by Soros “de facto provide migration advice”.

    Orban previously accused Soros of promoting illegal immigration. Last year, in a poster campaign , his government attacked Jean-Claude Juncker, then President of the European Commission, in addition to the Hungarian-born US billionaire.

      The facts back up Orban. $oro$’ organizations fund the NGOs who work at various stages of the illegal migrant routes, from their countries of origin to their European destinations, providing information, coordination, lobbying, publicity, and whatever else is needed. They also fund the so-called “rescue” missions in the Mediterranean that not only challenge coast guard and naval operations at sea, but also restrictions to access at ports. And at the highest levels of the EU and the UN, their money buys political support for the ideology and political influence that drives the worldwide mass migration agenda.
