BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Hungary is facing a frontal assault from U.S. financier George Soros who is attacking the country via his non-government organizations and European Union bureaucrats, a top ruling party politician said on Monday.
Fidesz Vice Chairman Gergely Gulyas said Soros’ claims that the Hungarian government lied in its campaign against him were “not substantial”, adding the billionaire and the European Union pushed the same pro-migrant agenda.
He rejected charges by Soros that the government’s campaign stoked anti-Muslim sentiment and employed anti-Semitic tropes.
