08-04-2022 07:00

Viktor Orbán is the Hungarian prime minister. He wins the elections again last weekend. Orbán is prime minister four times before. This is the fifth time. Some people are not happy.

Orbán owns some media. He can tell journalists what to write. Orbán’s party changes how people vote. Many people believe that it is not fair. Orbán’s party has most of the power in parliament.

Orbán meets with the Russian president Vladimir Putin many times. Orbán says that Hungary needs oil and gas from Russia. Hungary doesn’t give Ukraine any weapons to fight against Russia. Other countries can’t give weapons to Ukraine through Hungary.

Difficult words: elections (an event when people choose a person for a job in politics), media (the TV, radio, and newspapers), party (a government group).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
