During an intervention on Antena 3 private broadcaster on January 31, Călin Georgescu said that the legionary leader Zelea Codreanu and Ion Antonescu did “good deeds” as well, but also deeds that he cannot comment on, but that he must prove historians ”.

Also, the honorary president of AUR also declared, regarding Codreanu and Antonescu, that “he cannot have opinions towards the martyrs” and that he “kneels before the Romanian people”. Georgescu also said that the Romanian people are not “anti-anything” in general, when asked about the Holocaust in Romania.
