Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban's recent trips to Moscow and Beijing have caused concern among his Western allies. Orban's surprise meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin last week was followed by a visit to Chinese President Xi Jinping this week. These trips have raised questions about Orban's commitment to the European Union and NATO, as well as his willingness to work with Russia and China.

Orban's visit to Moscow came just days after the European Union imposed new sanctions on Russia in response to the country's invasion of Ukraine. Orban has been critical of the sanctions, arguing that they will hurt the Hungarian economy. He has also said that he believes that Russia and Ukraine should be able to resolve their differences through dialogue.

Orban's visit to Beijing came amid growing tensions between China and the United States. The two countries have been engaged in a trade war, and China has been accused of human rights abuses in the Xinjiang region. Orban has said that he believes that China is a "great power" and that Hungary should strengthen its ties with the country.

Orban's trips to Moscow and Beijing have been met with criticism from some European leaders. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that Orban's visit to Moscow was "not helpful" and that it undermined the EU's efforts to present a united front on Ukraine. French President Emmanuel Macron said that Orban's visit to Beijing was "a mistake" and that it sent the wrong message to China.

Orban has defended his trips to Moscow and Beijing, saying that he is simply trying to act in the best interests of Hungary. He has said that he believes that Hungary can benefit from closer ties with both Russia and China. However, Orban's critics argue that his actions are undermining the EU and NATO, and that he is putting Hungary's interests ahead of those of its allies.
