The Democratic Alliance of Hungarians in Romania (RMDSZ) considers Moscow’s move to recognize the two breakaway republics in Ukraine and to enter the country an “irresponsible decision,” that threatens peace in the region, party president and Romania’s Deputy Prime Minister Hunor Kelemen wrote on Tuesday.
In his post on social media, Kelemen argued that Russian military forces occupying Ukraine had entered Ukraine not with the intention of peacekeeping but over territorial aggression. In his view,
Not only does this threaten the peace of the region and Europe, but Russia is also undermining the foundations of international law.”
“We support the position of the European Union and NATO. As a member of the defense alliance, Romania must contribute to the search for a peaceful diplomatic solution, to the international sanctions against Russia, and NATO’s defense actions with the greatest responsibility,” Kelemen concluded, joining other Romanian dignitaries, such as president Klaus Iohannis, in slamming Moscow’s move.
