National movements of Idel-Ural peoples use all possible means to protect their identity from permanent onslaught of Moscow. In this long-lasting and unequal struggle we have virtually no international support. Any display of solidarity with national movements of Idel-Ural is a portion of freedom which motivates us to move forward.
Today Free Idel-Ural civic movement continue to work on expansion of its international contacts. Naturally, first of all we pay attention to Finno-Ugric and Turkic states, their political parties and movements. Hungarian Jobbik party, which openly declares defence of interests of Hungarians outside Hungary, is considered among such organizations. For this reason month ago we appealed to this political movement with an appeal to protect Finno-Ugric languages from Moscow.
It is sad to note, however, that Jobbik not only displayed very little to none interest in issues of Finno-Ugric peoples, but started in every possible way to avoid from answering our appeal. It would seem, therefore, that this political force is ready to fight for rights of Finno-Ugric people in Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania – just not in Russia.
We will continue to look for support among political circles of Hungary. We hope to establish a partnership with consistent Hungarian patriots, who are independent from Kremlin in their statements and actions.
