Yes, but evidence of Hun culture clearly matching the text
description is found outside of Europe.  Do we find Vedic culture outside
of India in pre-Harappan times?  Also, the Hun invasion is very clearly
spelled out in historical writings.  Not so, regarding the supposed invasion of
Vedic peoples.
