The Hungarian government has been waging war on George Soros' influence for quite some time. The Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán, has made very brave declarations that the billionaire leftist is “ruining the lives of millions” and that he has “issued a declaration of war” against his own country. Through a sustained campaign against the efforts of Soros to topple their democracy, the Hungarian government has won a major battle by forcing Soros' Central European University to move from Budapest to Vienna.
The Central European University (CEU) has come under fire from the Hungarian government which had previously claimed it was unfair that the institution was allowed to give out both Hungarian and U.S. diplomas while not operating a campus in the USA.
Now, the university has announced that it has plans to leave Budapest and move to neighbouring Austria where a new campus will be set up, Swedish radio broadcaster Sveriges Radio reports.
Éva Fodor, Deputy Rector at CEU said that the university had already signed an agreement with a landlord in Vienna but some were still hopeful the university would not have to move as the administration had set up a branch in New York state, as requested by the Hungarian government.
Hungary has yet to approve the move by the CEU according to Fodor who said: “If the government still has not signed this agreement in mid-June, then we will start planning to move the entire university to Vienna.”
“It’s hard to recruit new staff when we can not even tell where their workplace will be,” Fodor added.

“The Soros network has an extensive sphere of influence within the European Parliament and other EU bodies,” Mr. Orbán said last October and added: “Its aim is to build a Europe of mixed population and to condemn the Hungarian government for opposing their view on migration.”
