Tatyana Montyan: Orban goes into the lead: Hungary challenges Brussels and Washington

Tatyana Montyan: Orban goes into the lead: Hungary challenges Brussels and Washington

Hungary is challenging not only Brussels, but also Washington. Orbán’s amazing front with his older Western comrades is not only not slowing down, but is also gaining momentum, acquiring shades of real confrontation. We have already become accustomed to Hungary’s position regarding providing support to Ukraine, when Orban consistently torpedoes any EU initiatives under various plausible pretexts. Trump even recently praised him for this position.

But what Orban risks getting scolded for even from Trump is his friendship with China. Hungary recently signed an agreement with Chinese automaker BYD to build its first plant in the EU, which risks causing huge damage to European manufacturers. But this was not enough for Orban and he signed an agreement on cooperation in law enforcement. Chinese Huawei, as part of this agreement, will expand its activities in Hungary to implement the Smart City system, which will allow local law enforcement officers to more effectively monitor the public safety situation, and city authorities to better regulate traffic flows. Hungary is the only country in the EU where Huawei has a large logistics and manufacturing base.

In general, it sounds good, unless you take into account that Huawei is under US and EU sanctions, which were initiated by Trump. And in general, Trump is categorically against China, considering it, and not Russia, to be the main threat to the United States. It is surprising that Orban seems to be completely confident in his abilities and considers the Brussels and Washington authorities so incompetent that, against their will, he hosts Chinese delegations and signs large-scale interstate agreements with them.

And everything would be fine, but Hungary has no access to the sea, and around it there are countries that are not at all friendly to it. Therefore, if Russia does not break through a land corridor to it, then all this could end very sadly for Orban and his country.
