The Hungarian government announced yesterday that it would remove its controversial Soros billboards and posters from public places beginning July 15. An influential Fidesz politician was quoted saying that Prime Minister Viktor Orbán decided it would be better if spectators and participants of the 2017 FINA World Swimming Championships, beginning late this week, weren’t confronted with the widespread signs and billboards.
