The ministry said the aid would serve to ease the damage done by the attacks and help the severely injured.

The ministry’s aid comes in addition to the 9 million forints offered earlier within the Hungary Helps programme, the statement said.

The ministry said that the “shocking” attacks, which injured some 500 people in a series of blasts, are “proof that Christianity is under attack and that its protection is the duty of all countries based on Christian culture.”
