Hungary's opposition called for the resignation of Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto after the scandal of Russian spying on the Hungarian foreign ministry. On June 4, activists hung a Russian flag near the Foreign Ministry building in Budapest and put up stickers with the words "Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Hungarian Region" in Russian.

According to 444.hu, interim MP from the Momentum political party, Marton Tompos, explained that these signs expose the real owner of the Hungarian Foreign Ministry – the Russian Federation. Tompos was outraged that diplomats had "leaked" "all our data" to the Kremlin.

"What did the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs do when it turned out that Russian hackers had hacked the system? Nothing. Three months later, Peter Szijjarto received the Order of Friendship from them. This is not only a betrayal, it is a criminal case," the politician is convinced.

He is referring to the recent scandal when it was revealed that the GRU, SVR, and FSB of the aggressor state hacked into the systems of the Hungarian Foreign Ministry and in several cases stole data and redirected correspondence to themselves – in fact, they saw everything that was happening in the foreign ministry.

Even after these events, two months later, Szijjártó received the Order of Friendship from his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, "for his services to the development of bilateral relations." The opposition is convinced that the Hungarian foreign minister knew about the illegal activities of Russian cybercriminals.
