Activists of the opposition party Momentum brought Budapest back in time yesterday as they replaced street names with ones from the communist era.
Its activists are pro-European, and are concerned about Putin’s second visit to Hungary this year. They also handed out flyers resembling a communist era daily newspaper.
President of Momentum; Andras Fekete-Gyor said: “Putin’s influence in Hungary is real, so is the threat of Viktor Orban as he pushes the country into the arms of Russia. Momentum wants a future for Hungary in Europe and so have the Hungarians since Stephen I.’‘
