“… general Europeans have successfully shrugged off censorship, and it has emerged that, on the subject of Hungarian Border Protection Policy, many more people on the Continent agree with Hungary than are against it. Today Hungary’s standpoint is the standpoint of the majority of people in Europe, and Europeans cannot understand why their governments are not doing the same as Hungary’s government is doing” highlighted Prime Minister Viktor Orbán in the Parliament.  February 2106 ©The Office of Prime Minister Orbán

“As it is greatly audible that the Policy of some of EU States in regard with European Security is outdated, irrelevant –that is neither applicable any more to the challenges of  2016 and beyond– nor effective in a real time. 

Europe needs a Strong and Coherent Border Security Policy, as many EU Leaders have been voicing for a long time. From every aspects of Political science, it is time for Europe to go beyond its old orbit and move…… into the belated Realm of  Multifaceted EU Reform, notably –also on the Security of its Border fronts.” (by Editor)

Excerpt of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s speech at the ceremony of Memorial Day

“….that many hundreds of thousands of Hungarians from all over the Carpathian Basin – prisoners of war, civilians and political prisoners – were deported to Gulag camps.”

….. those deported between 1944 and 1948 only one fifth survived the hardships of the camps. All this was created by an insane idea born in Europe.”

“No one today disputes that, similar to National Socialism, Communism was also an insane idea, and no one disputes the crimes of Communism – but you know only too well what a long and difficult road it was to get this far.”  ©The Office of Prime Minister
