14 January 2018. For A Dear Rusin Friend of Mine

________________________

The Rusins are a small nation in the midst of East Central Europe. Under the Dual Monarchy, they were in Hungary. In the interwar years, they were part of Czechoslovakia. During World War II, they reverted to Hungary. Postwar, the Soviets arbitrarily added them to the Ukrainian SSR. After 1991, they were (and are) the victims of Galician Uniate cultural imperialism. Today… they want to be free. Most Rusin people see freedom in a renewed federal relationship with the Magyars, and Hungary is receptive to that (besides Rusins, many ethnic Magyars live in their homeland). Of course, the Galician Uniates don’t want this and are trying to force Podkarpatskaya Krai to remain “Ukrainian”. I believe that this won’t succeed. The Rusins are one of the smaller nationalities in Europe, but they’ve retained a distinct national consciousness, one that rejects Galician Uniate “Ukrainianism” in all its aspects. Podkarpatskaya Rus will be free… no American-imposed Galician occupation shall stop it. It’ll delay it… it’ll make it suffer like the rest of the notional “Ukraine” does under incompetent Galician Uniate fascist rule. However, the Rusins WILL be free…

I’m Great Russian myself… but most Russians support the aspirations of Rusins to be free of Galician Uniate oppression. The Galician Uniates were willing, feral, and brutal lickspittle servants of the American Deep State since 1945 (as they were willing executioners for the Habsburgs and Nazi fascists before them)… do you really want to support such a pack of running-dogs? Let the little peoples like the Rusins decide their own fate… they were never “Ukrainians”… they aren’t “Ukrainian” now… they’ll never be “Ukrainian”. Let their land be free… note well that “democracy” promoters such as Obama and Clinton never let them be free… nor did any other American president. What does that tell you about Anglo Americans? A great deal… none of it good…

Hungary Threatens to Leave EU… Rejects Pressure from Brussels

01d Sport 29.12.10. Budapest

Them Magyars be feisty and independent folk… tough, too, I hear (these guys are in a heated outdoor pool in the middle of winter in Budapest)… the EU had best watch their step.

________________________________

EU pressure on the Magyar government engendered anti-European sentiment in the parliament. Euractiv quoted László Kövér, the President of the National Assembly, “Hungary might leave the EU if Brussels tries to dictate to us how to run our country”. Moreover, Kövér said that attempts by Brussels to force specific policies on Hungary looks like what Moscow did prior to 1989. He noted that if the EU continued on such a course, it might force Hungary to make profound changes. However, Kövér said that might only happen in the case of a “nightmare” scenario. This forceful response came after the EU exerted much coercion on Hungary, forcing it to implement problematic policies [in terms of its national interests]. For example, rejecting the “South Stream” gas pipeline put Hungary in a very iffy position if it’s a very cold winter and there’s reduced gas supplies from Russia.

The European Commission used the scenario “Cold Winter” in assessing risk factors and testing the willingness of European countries to cutoff Russian natural gas in winter 2014, for example, a two-week cutoff would cause gas shortages in the range of 10 percent in Central and Western Europe (Austria, Czechia, Germany, Italy, Slovakia), if the European states were to show solidarity in sharing the burden of short supply. If such coöperation doesn’t materialise, Western and Central Europe won’t have any problems, but it’d be much harder on Poland and the Balkans. Balkan countries receive their gas via an older system of pipelines that pass through the Ukraine and Moldova. Therefore, they’re almost 100 percent dependent on Russian gas supplies. In addition, they’re not really part of European gas networks, and the amount of gas in underground storage isn’t enough to last the whole winter.

After Kövér’s statement and the harsh words of Minister-President Viktor Orbán addressed to Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel, who previously said that Germany would do everything “to steer Hungary on the right path”, the media reported that Berlin was preparing plans to place political sanctions against Hungary. Most accounts assumed that this meant that Hungary might face suspension of its voting rights in the EU. However, the German Foreign Office stated that such measures aren’t really under consideration, noting, “Such isn’t in German interests”. On should note that, earlier, Magyar Minister of Foreign Affairs Péter Szijjártó criticised EU policy on sanctions against Russia, raising doubts about their effectiveness in influencing Moscow’s behaviour, at the same time warning that European exports suffered from their effects. Szijjártó exposed disputes between EU member-states as to the efficacy of the sanctions in resolving the Ukrainian conflict. His statement also reflected concerns that sanctions in the style of “an eye for an eye” could reduce the already-weak prospects of economic growth in the bloc. A source close to Orbán said, “These sanctions haven’t led to the result that we’d hoped to achieve in the Ukraine… clearly, the conflict hasn’t de-escalated. Meanwhile, the European economy suffers, and Central Europe suffers the most”.

Petition to the Government of Hungary for Transcarpathia

00 Greek election 17.06.12. 02

_______________________________

We the undersigned are committed Magyar people who on this 28 March 2014, gathered in Budapest at the Plaza of Polish General Joseph Bem, in front of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to demand that the Hungarian territories occupied by the Ukraine would be returned to Hungary and in protest against the sanctions to the Russian people of the Crimea peninsula because they practised their right of self-determination. We demand that the Government of Hungary undertake the following steps unconditionally, especially on Section D of the Constitution, which proclaims that the fight for the rights for the collective rights of the separated Hungarian communities must be a national government policy. We can’t keep passive, just observing, and without taking action when history gives us a new chance to destroy the unjust framework that trampled on our self-determination rights with the Trianon dictate.

It’s more than clear that we must apply the self-determination rights guaranteed by international conventions to the 200,000 Magyars and almost 1 million Rusins of the Transcarpathia Region. This was so far the case in 1991 when a national vote tried to enforce self-determination measure, but the Ukrainian state sabotaged it. The current changes in the Ukraine that were influenced by outside powers, and the return of the Russian community of the Crimean peninsula to Russia by a legitimate national referendum, points up the unconditional duty of the Hungarian Government. As a regional power, it must demand an international military presence to ensure the regarding their return to Hungary, together with the Rusin nation, which lived in friendship with Magyars from times immemorial. We must see to it we guarantee a full territorial autonomy to them, as it is mandatory by the Resolution of the Parliamentary Convention of the European Council n. 1832/2011, which makes such measures compulsory on member states. We’re committed to send signals of enhancement and encouragement to our Magyar brothers and to the Rusins in Transcarpathia, and to other nationalities… Polish, Russians, Rumanians… living in the Ukraine about their right to self-determination and to the Government of Hungary to stand up straight for the above objectives, whilst we condemn any cowardly and subservient behaviour. Therefore:

  1. We require that the government immediately ask for a session of the UN Security Council to secure for the Magyar and Rusin community, which lived for almost 1,000 years in Hungary, a referendum under international control to express their right of self-determination as embodied in the UN International Convention of Political and Human Rights The government should ask that the UN Security Council introduce international peace keeping forces and international observers in sufficient numbers to secure the legitimacy of a referendum in Transcarpathia.
  2. We request that the government recognise immediately the Crimean referendum of 16 March 2014 as an act compatible with international law, as an expression of self-determination, and recognise the return of the Crimean peninsula to the Russian Federation as valid.
  3. We request that the government immediately withdraw its support for all sanctions against Russia in connection to the Crimean referendum and the return of the area, and that the government wouldn’t support any such sanction in the future. In addition, the government should declare that such sanctions conflict with the international norms of guaranteed self-determination, norms disregarded at the 1920 Trianon peace dictates when referenda weren’t allowed and when Hungarian territories were separated from the country and 3.5 million Hungarians were simply and illegally separated from their motherland.
  4. We request that the government immediately ready Hungarian military units to provide security to the 200,000 Magyars of Transcarpathia, of which more than one-third, more than 50,000, are Hungarian citizens, so, EU citizens. In order to do this, we request that we bring all Hungarian military personnel home from foreign lands where they serve foreign interests and that they should serve the motherland and their compatriots according to their oath.
  5. We request that the government immediately announce its claim to the Transcarpathia region, where for many centuries Magyar and Rusin people lived peacefully together, that it return to Hungary, similar to the precedence proven on 15 March 1939 with a revision of the unjust Trianon Treaty. Until that time, these oppressed and second-class citizens of Transcarpathia should be able to voice their desires, to see if they wanted to return to Hungary. We request that Hungary enforce the results of the 1991 Transcarpathia referendum, which requested sweeping autonomy for Rusins, including a Hungarian autonomy for Magyars in the Bereg region (located directly at the present Hungarian/Ukrainian border).
  6. We request that the government stand up for the self-determination rights of all national groups now oppressed on the territory of the Ukraine, especially for the Polish, Romanian, Bulgarian, Rusin, and Russian minorities, to support their cause, and that together with the countries responsible for those nationalities, we’d take all reasonable diplomatic, strategic, and tactical steps for the common success of their self-determination objectives.
  7. We request the immediate removal of Janos Martonyi as Minister of Foreign Affairs, who for many long years showed, especially with his current expressions, that he’s unfit to represent the interests of the Hungarian state in foreign relations in the light of his treasonous and cowardly acts and in his handling of the situation regarding the Ukraine. His acts and releases are to be taken even more seriously in the light of the fact that whilst there’s a historical moment for Magyars to assert our national interests and to at least partly adjust the illegitimate and unjust peace diktat of 1920, an act in collision with international law that sentenced our nation to death, and in spite of which not only in Transcarpathia, but also in former Northern and Southern Hungary and in Transylvania, a sizeable Magyar community managed to survive when faced with persecutions and deprivations of their rights. With regard to this, it’s important that the government bring the issue of all separated Hungarian territories to international forums, as well as before the UN Security Council to highlight the unjust borderlines in the Carpathian basin, to ask for their readjustment, as so far all nations in the area have a measure of self-determination except for the Magyars.
  8. We request that the Hungarian Government raise the issue at the EU Foreign Service and at the EU Council of protecting the rights of 200,000 Magyars, specifically in the light of the fact that more than 50,000 are Hungarian citizens, consequently EU citizens, so the EU has a responsibility to protect them.

The World should see that Magyars are a freedom-loving nation, and together with the Poles and the Russians on our side, we should be able to bring back freedom to Transcarpathia, which is under illegitimate Ukrainian occupation. Finally, we quote Count Istvan Szechenyi, “Everything has its moment in a certain time, which if lost, the virtues and honour are gone forever, and with it, life and all hope”. The above points were accepted unanimously by the members of the demonstration with one vote; we ask all people of good will in our country, in the Carpathian basin, and everywhere in the World to join us, to request together with us the steps described above, at the earliest time, to protect the Magyars of Transcarpathia and to reunite Transcarpathia to our homeland again. We await your effective actions and reply.

Magyars and Rusins Unite to Support Autonomy in Podkarpatskaya Rus

00 Rusin 01. 14.09.14

______________________________

On 11 September at the Magyar House in Budapest, the Magyar World Council and Rusin World Council met in joint session. These groups draw their membership from the 15 million Magyars and Rusins living throughout the world, including Zakarpatskaya Oblast in the Ukraine. Deputies of the Hungarian National Assembly (Országgyűlés) and the European Parliament also attended the forum. Such meetings have become important links for the Rusins and Magyars living in Podkarpatskaya, having support from social and political movements in Hungary that favour giving Podkarpatskaya an autonomous federal status within the Ukraine. In this regard, the meeting appealed to the European Parliament, the Hungarian Government, and the Ukrainian junta to heed the results of and legitimise the referenda held in Podkarpatskaya in 1991, during which about 80 percent of those voting were in favour of Podkarpatskaya having an autonomous federal status within the Ukraine.

The address to the European Parliament highlighted the need to prevent allowing the Ukraine to join the EU as long as autonomy for Podkarpatskaya remains unsettled and asked the EU to help the local people to reach this goal. A similar appeal went to the Hungarian state leadership and National Assembly, asking them to support the idea of ​​giving a federal status to Podkarpatskaya. The Congress called on the Ukrainian junta, in particular President Poroshenko, to ensure civil peace in the country, to stop the fratricidal war, and to ban the activities of fascist and extremist groups. It also demanded that the Ukrainian leadership recognise the results of the 1991 referendum as legitimate and grant immediate autonomy to Podkarpatskaya. On 16 September, those who attended the joint session plan a public meeting in Budapest at the Hungarian Parliament building, and they plan to present a petition to the President of the National Assembly with these resolutions, calling on Deputies to support their demands for autonomy.

Editor:

I got this from a correspondent:

Podkarpatskaya Rus is very small, so, you couldn’t divide it between any two countries. The people democratically decided to return to Hungary:

  • Hungary alone stepped up and told Kiev that it won’t allow Podkarpatskaya to become a second Novorossiya. It has the army to guarantee that… Slovakia doesn’t.
  • Between all the countries that Rusin people live in, there’s no dispute that none treats them better than Hungary does.
  • Magyar isn’t a Slavic language. If Podkarpatskaya Rus joined Slovakia, in maybe three generations the Rusin language would meld into Slovak. It’s already happened in the Pryaševčina. However, since Magyar is so very different from Rusin, the latter would be “protected”.

This confirms the above.
