Russian President Vladimir Putin visits Budapest in March learned nepszava.hu from several independent sources. (Not officially confirmed yet)
The exact date of the visit is still unknown. Apparently, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán's official programs are being reorganized to find the right time for both parties.
Putin's visit follows shortly after German Chancellor Angela Merkel's Budapest visit in February at a time when Hungarian - American bilateral relations have reached a low point stressed the liberal news portal.
In the meantime, US funded fringe party "Együtt" demanding that the government involve the opposition parties in the preparation of the meeting.
In addition, the radical - atlanticist fringe party with 1% popular support urged Prime Minister Viktor Orbán to withdraw from the "Paks2-contract". Last year, Russian Federal Atomic Energy Agency (Rosatom) won a contract to expand Hungary's only nuclear power plant by constructing two more reactors in Paks nuclear power plant.
