Hungary 1956 – ‘the first color revolution’?


Hungary’s Foreign Ministry has summoned the Russian ambassador over reportedly disparaging remarks on Russian state media about Hungary’s 1956 anti-Soviet uprising, AP reports:

The ministry said Tuesday it wants to clarify that Hungary does not tolerate anyone talking “in a humiliating manner about the revolution and its heroes.” The Foreign Ministry said Russian state media described the Hungarian revolt as a “pogrom” and as the first of the “color revolutions,” like Ukraine’s “Orange Revolution” in 2005, implying that the United States was behind the uprising.
