    Viktor Orban expressed “serious concern” that “all of Europe is slipping step by step into war” as EU countries are sending tanks to Ukraine and are now even considering supplying fighter jets. “If things continue like this, there will soon be countries that might want to send troops to Ukraine,” he said in the Hungarian parliament on Monday.

    He stressed that his government insisted on a peaceful settlement of the Ukraine conflict and called on the parliamentary parties to support this position. The West, according to Orban, wants to “drag Hungary into this war”.

    He also stressed once again that he remains opposed to the European Union’s anti-Russian sanctions, particularly in the energy sector. Orban reminded his audience that restrictions on fuel supplies led to a dramatic increase in prices, and Hungary’s spending on energy sources increased by €10 billion last year.

    “Brussels took this money out of Hungarians’ pockets with the help of sanctions,” Orban said.

    Gender propaganda encourages pedophilia and child pornography

    In Hungary, too, the subject of child pornography has been in the public spotlight in recent weeks. Among other things, it became known that a homosexual teacher had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student. The teacher had also boasted about this via TikTok.

    Two years ago, the case of the Hungarian ambassador in Peru, Gabor Kaleta, caused a sensation when 19 000 images with pedophile content were found on his laptop. As a result, the government passed a package of laws that tightened the legal protection of children.

    Orban pointed out in parliament on Monday that the number of child pornography offenses in Hungary had increased rapidly in recent years. He stressed that his government was pursuing a zero-tolerance policy on pedophilia.

    According to Orban, the worrying trend towards child pornography and pedophilia is a result of the LMBTQ movement’s “gender propaganda”. And further: “Even if the whole world goes mad, even if Brussels excuses the inexcusable, Hungary should remain normal”.
