Commenting on the Hungarian MEPs from the Fidesz Party leaving the EPP group in the European Parliament, Christoph Heubner, Executive Vice President of the International Auschwitz Committee, said in Berlin:

"Finally we have a move towards clarity and truth. Under increasing pressure from their fellow members in the group, the Hungarian MEPs from Orban’s Fidesz party have left the EPP group, to which they have long since ceased to belong as despisers of Europe who are drifting increasingly to the far right.

This is an encouraging signal for many democrats, not only in Hungary, that Europe is showing the red card to nationalist autocrats and their followers, as well as to their anti-Semitic and anti-democratic slogans."
