🇭🇺🇷🇺⚡️The Guardian reports that #Budapest has become the most Russia-friendly capital in the EU and cites the recent successful staging of Sergei Prokofiev’s opera "War and Peace" in Budapest as proof of Hungary's pro-Russian stance.
#prokofiev #ukrainewar #russia #hungary
The opera's grand music and patriotic Russian libretto were performed just three hours from the Ukrainian border.
The opera is based on the novel by Leo #Tolstoy about #Napoleon's invasion of Russia, and was adapted by Prokofiev in the 1940s, when memories of the Soviet Union's victory over the Nazis were still fresh.

Hello There!
Some good news this morning!
Now #Ukraine is able to target several air bases deep in #Russia territory
Targeted strategic bombers that launch missiles against critical infrastructure is the best way to prevent bombing. better even…
2/ than to wait for "perfect" air defense.
it's also a great mind victory to show Russia that they are not the only one that can strike deep like they did in #Lviv etc.

so this morning :…
3/ it has been reported that #UAairforce has been able to strike deep to At least one large explosion occurred at a Ru military air base in the Saratov region, abt 600 km east of Ukr, while another blast was reported by Ru state media at an airfield outside Ryazan, S-E of Moscow.

Non-Hungarian folks likely missed what
@PM_ViktorOrban posted 2 days ago on his FB:

"Advent Military Operation" - Peculiar wording ...

Not even his assault-rifle-loving #MAGA #Republican #USA friends would use such phrasing to describe going shopping for a wreath

1/7 Read👇
He didn't visit #Kyiv, he sent the loyal party member @KatalinNovakMP to #Ukraine, but that's another story
No, he was just shopping in #Budapest
This may be a surprise for some, but despite the Christian tarpaulin, Orbán is actually an #Atheist

Pastor Gábor Iványi, known for charity work, head of the Hungarian Evangelical Brotherhood - who called Orbán a symbol of #Fascism, an insolent who will be damned, a leader at the height of madness - is one of the rare spiritual leaders, to dare to openly criticize Orbán

Dear subscribers and guests of the channel! The matters of the #Russian President #Putin in the foreign policy space have not been working out lately. For several weeks, Putin has been asking to coordinate a phone conversation with the President of #China #XiJingping.
#Putin has been receiving exclusively negative responses. The #Chinese side sees no opportunity for meaningful dialogue and suggests asking for a phone conversation with President #XiJinping after the New Year.
The possibility of a theoretical visit of the #Chinese leader to #Russia is being considered in the fall of 2023. However, the Chinese side has set a number of conditions for the Russian colleagues under which such a prospect can be realized.

🧵Rare for me publish in Hungarian media but 60th anniversary of 1st of Grandpa’s HAPPY DAYS IN HELL / Pokolbéli víg napjaim = good reason for piece in @MagyarHang this week. Please do purchase if you are in #Hungary. Contains super cute picture of me aged 2 btw.😉
@MagyarHang Hard to appreciate seismic impact the book (a bestseller) had in UK that year. It was = first full length gulag memoir published in English years before Solzhenitsyn‘s work (by which it was later overshadowed) became available. Picture of 1st edition in dust jacket here (Ebay).
The work‘s success was due not only to narrative force / symbolic artistry but outstanding quality of the translation by Kati Szász/ Szász Katalin who rendered the text into beautiful literary English. Sadly I lack a picture of Kati to illustrate this thread (can anyone help?).

La #Zakharova vorrebbe spiegare quanto sia costruttiva la presenza del battaglione #Wagner in #Mali, a fianco dei #Jihadisti 😂😂😂😂
La #Zakharova spiega anche quanto sia "costruttivo" il #ModusOperandi Russo di spianare Damasco, Grozny, Mariupol...
#giletti si fa insultare dalla #Zakharova (è un bambino, gli ha detto) ed è indifeso storicamente.

Quando si parla di #GuerraRussiaUcrania, genericamente di
"mancato rispetto dei patti" bisognerebbe capire chi ha iniziato prima a non rispettare i patti, e di quali patti si sta parlando:
Malta? Budapest? Minsk 1? Minsk 2?
A me oggi interessa evidenziare una parte di
Dei patti non rispettati, o se preferite rispettati al 100% dall'#Ucraina.
Nel 1991 l'Ucraina era la 3° potenza #nucleare al mondo: possedeva 3mila testate nucleari tattiche e 2mila testate strategiche.
Infatti con la disgregazione dell'urss la Russia non aveva la
Capacità di riprendersi le sue armi, sparse nel paese.
L'#Ucraina aveva ricevuto in "eredità", logicamente, anche armi, tank, missili, basi
Un apparato militare di tutto rispetto.
Ma è il nucleare che ci interessa: l'ucraina, NEL PIENO RISPETTO DEL #PATTODIBUDAPEST

Am Wiener Hauptbahnhof ist soeben ein Railjet (RJ 264) aus #Budapest angekommen. In diesem Zug waren ca. 70-100 Flüchtlinge aus der #Ukraine. Der Zug war allgemein aber eher schwach ausgelastet (viele Sitzplätze leer).

This 12(!) car #train arrived at #budapestnyugati from #záhony at the #Ukrainian #border this afternoon, it was a special train for the #Ukrainianrefugees fleeing the #WARINUKRAINE

And I have to say that I am positively surprised by how much help is happening in Eastern Europe!
And to put it in context, the "normal" train back to Zahony had 5 cars...

#Russia has invaded Sovereign #Ukraine.
Russia along with the big 5 gave Ukraine, #Belarus and #Kazakhstan explicit guarantee to respect their Sovereignty and territories as part of #Budapest memorandum in return for giving up their #nukes.
#Putin claimed that "promises" were made and broken regarding #NATO expansion?
Yet #Gorbachev has said many times that no such promise was given
Who should we believe?
The Ethno-nationalist?
Or the Nobel prize winner?
Russia breached this accord with its original 2014 invasion.
The actions of Russia in its pursuit of Crimea and making #Azov a russian lake have led to creating and supporting continued insurgency in eastern Ukraine.
The claim of Putin to be entering Ukraine as a #peacekeeper?
As a guardian of Russian speakers?

A few quick thoughts on my #BJJ journey from #purpletobrown.

My gym in #Budapest has a culture of leg hunting, esp in no gi. They frequently catch me with knee bars and even heel hooks. (The latter are forbidden at most gyms until brown as they are *incredibly* dangerous.)
I’ve had to change up my game and be incredibly mindful of where I place my feet. This is good, but I find myself defending my legs at the expense of trying to take top. I’ve not yet figured out a way to balance leg defense from relentless leg hunters while trying to guard pass.
On another note. I finally figured out why I kept vomiting after my workouts. I couldn’t find just filtered water so I’ve been drinking mineral water. It was literally making me sick.

Differences between #Portland #Oregon & #Budapest #Hungary

No tent camping and *far* fewer homeless

*Much* safer

*Much* cleaner and no mounds of trash everywhere

Virtually no guns

No riots

Statues exist

Currently open for business
It’s difficult to explain to people just how bad the city of portland has become. This is made worse by gaslighting and partisanship.
Interesting how “lived experience” and “testimony” is only viewed as legitimate if it comports with the predilections of the reader.
