The introductions of far-right commentators in the Russian media were 
sometimes overtly impudent. This was the case, for example, of Jobbik's 
Marton Gyongyosi who, in 2012. urged the Hungarian government to draw up 
lists of Jews who posed a “national security risk”. In an introduction 
to the interview with him in Komsomol’skaya Pravda the female journalist 
described Gyongyosi as an “elegant, handsome 37-year old man” a “way-up 
and sophisticated ... ardent patriot of Hungary” who “could not care 
less” that “he had been called an anti-Semite and a neo-Nazi”. The 
journalist of Komsomol’skaya Pravda, which earlier reported on 
anti-Semitic activities of Jobbik, apparently needed this whitewashing 
and distracting introduction to play down Gyongyosi's anti-Semitism and 
lend credibility to his words that the EU was a colony of the United 
States and that the CIA, the US State Department, George Soros and 
European politicians had allegedly orchestrated the Ukrainian protests.
