A burját fővárosban, Ulan Udében emlékművet állítanak fel a hatalmas elődök, a hunok tiszteletére. Idén szeptemberben pedig nemzetközi rendezvény keretében próbálják meg felidézni közös őseink emlékét. A Bajkál-tó menti városban működő Nemzetközi Hun Alapítvány elnöke, Oleg Bulutov ősei emlékét kívánja így ápolni.
A burját főváros szívében emelt emlékmű a hunokra szeretné irányítani a figyelmet. Bulutov szerint ez lenne az első olyan köztéri monumentális szobor, amely a hunok dicsőségét hirdetné. Az alapítvány ezen kívül az Eurázsia-szerte élt hunok nyomait is szeretné feltárni, hogy felhívja a nemzetközi közvélemény figyelmét ezen ősi nép történelmi szerepére. Közvetlen környezetük jobb megismerése végett Bulutov egy „hun út” kialakítását tervez Mongólia és Burjátia között, hogy minél több érdeklődő és kutató ellátogasson és megismerje a hunok ősi életmódját. Az alapítvány eddig már több túrát is szervezett az egykori Hunniába. Szeretnék feltérképezni, hogy a hatalmas eurázsiai sztyeppéken pontosan hol és mikor éltek őseink. Első útjuk hozzánk vezetett még 2008-ban, majd 2009-ben ellátogattak a Kaszpi-tenger menti Kalmükiába, tavaly pedig az Észak-Kaukázus hunok lakta vidékeire. Bulutov elmondása szerint 2012-ben délnyugati irányba indulnak, hogy a fehér hunok nyomait keressék meg Kazahsztánban,Afganisztánban és Pakisztánban. Később még keletre, Koreába és egyes észak-kínai területekre is szeretnének eljutni.
Oleg Bulutov szeretné a nagy burját hun várost, Ivolgát újra felépíteni, hogy az ősi település eredeti formájában látogatható legyen. Ha valaki ellátogat a helyszínre és meg akarja tekinteni az egykori hun települést, akkor csak kopár földet talál, illetve a városi múzeumban néhány képet és tárgyat tekinthet meg a tárlókon keresztül. Mivel rendelkezésre állnak a régészeti anyagok és rekonstrukciók, az alapján fel lehet építeni a hatalmas ókori várost. A tervek szerint fából készítenék el a hajlékokat, melyeknek pontos másai a mi Árpád-kori veremházainknak. Bár a kivitelezés több millió rubelbe kerül, Ulan-Ude város támogatja a tervet, egyrészt a burjátok elődjüknek tekintik a nagy hun metropoliszt, mely a Kr. e. 2. századtól virágzott, másrészt a hun emlékek és az alapítvány egyéb rendezvényei – mint az idei Ősi városi napok - sok látogatót vonzanak Burjátiába.

The goal of the “Magyarok Szövetsége” (Alliance of Hungarians) is to awaken society's self-organizing potential and empower the eight million losers of the post-communist times. In the first steps, the Alliance of Hungarians initiated small community fairs, public forums, organized public events and built community ovens to bake bread in order to strengthen community thinking.
On August 12-15, 2011, the “Magyarok Országos Gyűlése” (Hungarian National Caucus) will be organized, the third time, by the Alliance of Hungarians, which motto is "national self-sufficiency in the Carpathian Basin". The historical constitution is presupposing the restoration of self-government, historical continuity and the reinforcement of self-governance based on self-sufficiency and community ownership. Self-sufficiency is one of the basis on which community ownership can be established for owners, producers, suppliers and consumers, so creating a secure home market for domestic products.
The Alliance of Hungarians initiated the formation of the Crown Asset Management Co. in late April, 2010, and since then members of the Alliance have been touring the Carpathian Basin, spreading the ideas of cooperatation and urging locals to form local cooperatives. One of the results of this work is the formation of the Rábaköz farmers' organization. The tour's next stop will be on June 6, 2011, at 7 pm in the Csorna community center (all visitors are welcomed).

COSAC meeting: Central Europe needs security guarantees
An economic restructuring has been taking place in Hungary where the debt is an enemy rather than an economic challenge said the prime minister on Monday, at the COSAC meeting.
"Hungary is at war with national debt and she wants to win the war" said the prime minister at the Committee of European Parliament Member States meeting in the National Assembly. Success requires new actions, which might seem unusual even to the European Union said the prime minister.
Viktor Orbán said we have to spell out that the national debt has to be reduced from the current 82 percent level to the range of 70-75 percent over four years. According to Orbán, the European Union needs good strategic relationship with Russia, but if there is no cooperation in Central Europe, it will be difficult to hammer out a strategic compromise between Russia and the EU.
The Prime Minister stressed that Central Europe needs security guarantees. Military security is more less granted, but the region also needs economic security guarantees, particularly in the energy sector. We need north-south roads to be built from the Baltic Sea to the Adriatic Sea. Upstaging Central Europe should be a universal and comprehensive European interest said Viktor Orbán.

László Kövér said the plaque commemorating to those who died for the freedom of the country and fought under unimaginable physical and psychological suffering in World War I.
Under socialism the Bolsheviks wanted to re-write history and tried to destroy even the memory of the heroes of World War I said the speaker.

The bronze plaque depicts the mythical bird, the Turul, with spreading wings holding a sword protecting the Holy Crown.

It was five years ago, on 26 May, 2006, when the illegitimate former Prime Minister Ferenc Gyurcsany addressed the party faithfuls, in a closed setting, after winning the national election based on lies and massive manipulation of the electorate.
The speech was leaked to the public that in turn triggered the 2006 unrest that the Gyurcsany regime used as a pretext to crackdown on the opposition.
Some of the victims of the 2006 crackdown have been compensated by the Fidesz government but so far, none of the socialist criminals have been brought to justice for their crimes of immense proportions unheard of since the 1956 uprising.
But even today, prominent leaders of the resistance movement are still in jail, among them György Budaházy that the Gyurcsany regime arrested on fabricated charges to create a spectacular terrorist case that later could be used as a pretext to completely eliminate the nationalist opposition.
During the 2006 demonstrations the Gyurcsany regime ordered police to shoot, arrest and torture hundreds of innocent people that rightfully rallied against the lies and disinformation that the socialists employed to win the national election.
These are the infamous lines of Ferenc Gyurcsany's speech that triggered the uprising.
''We lied in the morning, we lied in the evening...We did everything to keep that secret to the end of the electoral campaign.
..We screwed up, big time...No country in Europe has been so blatant. We obviously lied through the past one and a half to two years. And meanwhile, we didn't do a thing for four years -- nothing.''
