Hungarian Guard: 150 Slovaks keen to join us

The Hungarian Guard claims that people from outside of Hungary, including 100 to 150 from Slovakia, want to join the far-right paramilitary organisation.

The guard has not accepted any of these applications yet, the daily Nový Čas reported on October 30.
