Hungary’s prime minister published his aid for pupils taking their assessments Wednesday, accompanying the concept using a picture of Hungary’s former land before the conclusion of the First World War.
This historic territory included large sections of modern Croatia, Serbia, Romania, and Slovakia — that were lost beneath the Treaty of Trianon of 1920 after the collapse of their joint Austro-Hungarian state.
Hungary dropped around two-thirds of its land and a few citizens in the nation think about the deal a national catastrophe. Similar maps also have been shown at far-right rallies.
Critics of two neighboring nations have reacted to the particular gesture on Facebook.
On Thursday, Croatian President Zoran Milanovic urged students to not publish any previous maps on social networking.
“In our closets and writings there are a lot of historical maps and cards which reveal our homeland much larger than it is now,” Milanovic composed on Facebook, including that other European nations will have similar statements.
“Do not talk’ them and set them in your profile they aren’t applicable or effective now, and what’s more, they’re endlessly annoying our neighbors.”
“Croatia is a European nation and state… learn from history, but look in the future”
Croatia’s foreign ministry, Gordan Grlić Radman, has also added that relations between Hungary and Croatia are exceptional, but that undercover claims were unthinkable at the EU.
That is maybe not the first time that Orbán has shared pictures the map of”historical” Hungary, along with the Croatian prime minister stated in December that his administration would”hold discussions with the side” about these issues.
Countless Romanian users Also Have reacted to Viktor Orbán on Facebook.
The conclusion had created an angry response in the Democratic Union of the Hungarians in Romania (UDMR), that are closely associated with Viktor Orbán’s Fidesz party.
“We’re asking for exactly what the constitution provides,” stated the UDMR on Facebook.
