Those who want to forge the European Union into a European empire are all supporters of immigration, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Tuesday on the Memorial Day of the 1956 revolution and freedom fight, outside the House of Terror Museum in Budapest. He stressed Europe is a home of nations.

According to the Prime Minister today in Brussels imperial marching songs are being played again, “it is true that this tune is different from the old one”.
