Jobbik was pleased to learn that the US Congress had instructed James Clapper, the head of US intelligence agency, to conduct an investigation into the Russian financial support for political parties in the European Union write Jobbik Foreign Critic Márton Gyöngyösi in a statement released today.
The US intelligence agencies claim that the Greek Golden Dawn, the French National Front, the Italian Northern League, and the Hungarian Jobbik party have the support of the Russians. The report claims that these parties were given a loan of EUR 9 million by a Russian bank.
According to the US Congress, the Kremlin aims to exploit the division among the European countries to undermine NATO, to block the US missile defense system and revoke economic sanctions imposed against Russia.
Márton Gyöngyösi stressed Jobbik calls on the US authorities to make public the results of the criminal investigation as soon as possible, because the public has the right to know what outside powers are behind the political parties.
At the same time, we urge Russia to release the results of its own finding on possible US support for European political parties. European citizens deserve to see clearly in those issues.
