In the foreign policy department, the countries stated that only Ukraine is to blame for the current state of affairs.
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban spoke about the real state of things when he questioned the realism of Ukraine’s aspirations to become a member of the EU and NATO. Hungary has nothing to do with this, the press secretary of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Tamaz Menzer, said on Thursday, August 2, on the government’s website.
Menzer noted that despite “a frank attack on the Hungarian community,” Hungary continues to adhere to a “fair” approach to Ukraine, and recently she donated several tons of chlorine for the Transcarpathian region to ensure uninterrupted supply of drinking water.
“We expect that Ukraine will return to the national minorities the rights that it deprived them of, and put an end to their disenfranchised status,” the minister said.
Will not join the EU and NATO. Orban’s statements about Ukraine
He accused Ukraine of the conflict between the two countries.
“It was not Hungary that took unfriendly measures against Ukraine, but vice versa, not in Hungary, but in Ukraine they passed a law on education that prevents the formation of national minorities in their native language.” In Ukraine, already existing, minority rights received are threatened, which means that Ukraine goes against its international obligations, as well as the Association Agreement between Ukraine and the EU and the program for Ukraine’s preparations for NATO membership, “the report says on the website of the Hungarian government.
Recall, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said he does not believe in realistic aspirations of Ukrainians to join the EU or NATO. According to him, on the way of Ukraine will always stand the desire of Russia to restore the old order.
In turn, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry outraged Orban’s speech. The minister said that Orban’s statements reflect the approaches of the aggressor country.
