This is what Atlatszo reported last week

London-based V4 Agency is Orbán’s propaganda machine disguised as global media product

A venture of Fidesz-allied political strategist Árpád Habony, bilingual news site V4NA channels misinformation between Hungary, Slovenia, and North Macedonia. The ambitions fuelling the self-styled news agency, however, are curtailed by its meagre capabilities.

Car honking protests cancelled due to astronomical fines handed out by Budapest police

People were honking their cars for the fifth and so far, the last time on Monday 19th May to stand up against the governments’ actions during the COVID crisis. The protests were organised under Viktor Orbán’s office in the Buda Castle to warn the prime minister to the fact that some people think the Hungarian government is mismanaging the current crisis.

Yet another very important stadium is being built in Budapest for a bargain price of 225 million EUR

The new handball hall was planned to be built for the 2022 European Men’s Handball Championship to be hosted by Hungary and Slovakia together. The winner of the construction tender, István Garancsi, a friend of Viktor Orbán’s first undertook the construction for 441 million EUR (153.9 billion HUF), but later this price was dropped, and they will build the stadium for 225 million EUR (78.7 billion HUF).
