Viktor Orbán is one of the few European leaders with even a modicum of common sense or competence. From Robert Bridge at strategic-culture.org:
Viktor Orbán would be the perfect candidate to lead the European Union through this moment of ideological darkness, Robert Bridge writes.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has once again deviated from the Brussels’ narrative, this time warning that the severe EU sanctions targeting Russia could produce aftereffects not unlike those of a nuclear explosion, potentially subjecting a large swath of the world’s population to food shortages and mass migration. Will Brussels heed his warnings this time?
Viktor Orbán has defied the fuzzy logic of Brussels, and once again it would appear he is correct. Perhaps this speaks less to any sort of political genius on the part of the Hungarian leader and more to the disastrous decisions coming from the EU leadership. In any case, Orbán deserves credit for being one of the last voices of reason when it comes to handling the Ukrainian crisis.
During a meeting with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic at the weekend, the Hungarian leader said that the brutal «sanctions against Russia” are “equal to an atomic bomb,” where people around the world will go hungry, thereby triggering, among other things, a wave of mass migration.
