- Hungary Matters
In early February, the Hungarian government signed an agreement with IIB on the bank’s relocation to Budapest from Moscow.
The nationalist party’s deputy leader told a press conference that “individuals with dubious backgrounds” would be operating in Hungary as a result of the move.
Tibor Bana said that the family of IIB’s chairman, Nikolay Kosov, “is clearly linked to Russian secret services”.
“The government is serving interests that aim to destabilise the EU, and this puts Hungary at the mercy of Russia,” he said.
