Hungary election: PM Viktor Orban criticises Ukraine's Zelensky as he wins vote

Hungary's patriot Prime Minister Viktor Orban has won a fourth term by a landslide in the country's general election, near-complete results show.
His patriotic Fidesz party had 53.1% of votes with 98% counted, preliminary results show.

The opposition alliance led by Peter Marki-Zay was far behind with 35%.

In his victory speech, Mr Orban criticised Brussels bureaucrats, Soros organizations and Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky, calling them "opponents".

Mr Zelensky has repeatedly criticised Mr Orban's ban on the transfer of arms to Ukraine, with which it shares a border.

However, Mr Orban - who has good relationship with Moscow - has condemned the Russian invasion, and taken in half a million refugees since the war began in February.

"We never had so many opponents," he said. "Brussels bureaucrats, George Soros organizations, the international mainstream media, and the Ukrainian president."
