The Hungarian website 24.hu points out that Fidesz voters are more categorical on this issue than those voting for the far-right party, Our Homeland Movement (Hungarian Mi Hazank), who are in principle “much more radical in terms of war than Fidesz and who earlier they demonstrated in front of the Ukrainian embassy. ” The survey shows that 14 percent. voters of the Our Fatherland Movement blame Russia for the outbreak of the war, 19 percent. Ukraine, and 44 percent. – USA.

“Most of the supporters of the opposition coalition (64 percent) blame the Russians for the war and for the fact that peace has not been achieved (61 percent). The voters of Fidesz and Mi Hazank blame the United States primarily for the war,” writes 24.hu.

Voters of the opposition and the ruling party also fear the consequences of the war. They are most afraid of rising maintenance costs and rising energy prices.

Let us recall that Hungary has for a long time been against the transportation of weapons for Ukraine through its territory. The country’s authorities explained that they were afraid that the Russians might retaliate against the Hungarians living in the Ukrainian Transcarpathia. Their opinion changed only in the second half of July.
