Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban may take a strong stance against the hordes of Islamic migrants sweeping into Europe, but when it comes to those genuinely seeking refuge from oppression, he is more than willing to open his heart and demonstrate true humanitarianism. The New York Times revealed that Orban was involved in facilitating the evacuation of ousted Macedonian Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski from political prosecution in his homeland.
Gruevski, a democratically-elected nationalist leader who resisted globalist pressure to downgrade his country’s close relationship with Vladimir Putin’s Russia, ruled the Balkan nation from 2005 until 2016, when he forced out of power in a coup engineered by the European Union. After extensive violent Soros-funded protests in summer 2015, the EU succeeded in ousting Gruevski through the Pržino Agreement. By May 2018, Gruevski had been sentenced to two years in prison on trumped-up charges pushed by the country’s new EU-backed socialist leader, Zoran Zaev.
A day before Gruevski was set to go to prison, he showed up to the Hungarian embassy in neighboring Albania to request safe refuge from his unjust prosecution in Macedonia. The request was granted, and Hungarian diplomats then drove Gruevski in diplomatic vehicles to Montenegro and then on to Serbia, a country diplomatically close to Hungary and Russia. By the following day, Gruevski was safe on Hungarian soil.
Macedonian officials have accused Hungary of knowing beforehand about Gruevski’s plan to flee their regime’s oppression, and of facilitating his initial trip from Macedonia to Albania. Regardless of whether or not this true, the decision to provide refuge to this dissident was clearly a heroic act of defiance on Orban’s part towards EU tyranny.
Gruevski is far from the only democratically elected patriotic European leader who has endured an EU-backed coup. In 2011, Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi were deposed after resisting EU austerity demands. Berlusconi was replaced with a bureaucrat from the European Commission, and subsequently imprisoned. In 2013, Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa, a close Orban ally, was removed and jailed following mass Soros-funded protests. In 2014, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was forced from power and had to flee to Russia. In May of this year, Soros-funded protests pushed out Slovakia’s Prime Minister, Robert Fico, who had been resisting EU migration policy, and in June, the leader of Romania’s ruling party, Liviu Dragnea, was jailed, in the wake of EU condemnation of Romanian judicial reforms. Now, even Orban himself faces a Soros-aligned uprising in his country, but he has made clear that he will not be backing down.
