VIENNA, October 25. /TASS/. Hungarian Foreign Ministry on Tuesday summoned the Russian ambassador in Budapest for a conversation regarding a statement by Dmitry Kiselyov, the anchor of a primetime news and analysis TV show, who said on Sunday the 1956 anti-Soviet revolt in Budapest was the first-ever ‘color revolution’.

Foreign Ministry officials said they planned to tell the ambassador Hungary did not accept any disrespectful treatment of the revolution and its heroes, MTI news agency said.

Hungarian political party calling itself ‘Politics Can be Different’ urged the ministry earlier on Tuesday to summon the ambassador for explanations. It said Dmitry Kiselyov described the events of 1956 in Hungary on his show on Sunday as the world’s first ‘color revolution’ the blame for which should be apportioned entirely to Western powers and primarily to the U.S.
