Armed Ukrainian organization threatens Jobbik and HVIM

An armed organization of Ukrainian nationalists called Karpatska Sitsh (KS) threatened to apply violent measures to annihilate the activists of supposedly hostile Hungarian organizations and parties operating in the Lower Carpathians, claiming that they undermine the authority of the Ukrainian state. The communiqué specifically names Jobbik and Sixty-four Counties Youth Movement (HVIM)

They cry self-assassination

The press release was posted on the paramilitary organization's social media sites and re-posted by news portals operating in the Lower Carpathians. It claims there have been several provocations aiming to prompt clashes between the local Ukrainian and the Hungarian communities, and the conflict might escalate to the Western regions of Ukraine.

 "Agent provocateurs have sprayed paint over the Hungarian inscriptions on the street signs of Hungarian villages in the Lower Carpathians. This is an obvious provocation by Russia, which has long been ready to strike at our home front, our Lower Carpathians" says the press release, which also claims that the regional information war, which has long been going on, is now turning into hard action.

 A few days ago we reported that the "language war" of the Ung region has brought the vandalization of Hungarian street signs, but the perpetrators remained unknown. After the incident, the Ukrainian authorities were also talking about a destabilization attempt, as if Hungarian street signs hadn't been vandalized before the beginning of the Ukrainian-Russian conflict, or as if it hadn't had decade-long "traditions".

Lethal threat

"We declare that the warriors of KS, a special task force will continue monitoring the developments (in the Lower Carpathians) and will react to the events taking place in the county; if we find anti-Ukrainian activities posing a threat to the Ukrainian nation or state, or such ideas being spread, we will be forced to apply violent measures against the hostile Hungarian organizations and parties (Jobbik and HVIM) operating in Ukrainian territory in order to liquidate and arrest their activists undermining the authority of the Ukrainian state.

Jobbik: we will not let it happen

In response to the news, a joint press release was issued by Márton Gyöngyösi, the deputy leader of Jobbik's Parliamentary Group and Vice-Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Hungarian National Assembly, and Jobbik MP Ádám Mirkóczki, member of the National Security Committee of the Hungarian National Assembly, who is also the party's spokesman.

 The document is titled "The Hungarian authorities must protect Hungarian citizens in the Lower Carpathians!" and it states that the patriotic party is astounded to hear that the extreme Chauvinist Karpatska Sitsh paramilitary organization is threatening to liquidate Jobbik and HVIM activists living in the Lower Carpathians, as well as basically any Hungarian people, since anyone can be accused with baseless allegations any time. Although the above-mentioned patriotic organizations took a firm stance to support Hungarian-Ruthenian autonomy efforts in the Lower Carpathians and criticized the anti-minority policies and measures of Kiev's Chauvinistic puppet government, they have never done anything illegal;  pointed out the two politicians.

"Jobbik will take immediate steps to convene the joint session of the Foreign Affairs and the National Security Committees in order to investigate what measures the Hungarian government and the relevant Hungarian authorities and diplomats are planning to take in defence of the Hungarian citizens living in the Lower Carpathians." they said, adding that Jobbik and HVIM which follows the same national policy will not allow themselves to be forced off their path by such aggressive threats.

"Our goal is to guarantee the security of the Hungarian community and to help them prosper in their own homeland" they wrote.
