We are freeing up capacity that will allow Ukrainian grain that is stuck here to leave Ukraine for Hungary and reach world markets,”
said the State Secretary.
To achieve this, he said, Hungary would have to make significant improvements in the short term, the timetable for which would be agreed upon with those responsible in Transcarpathia.
This work could lead to Hungary becoming one of the main corridors for Ukrainian grain to the world,”
Levente Magyar added.
The Ukrainian province of Transcarpathia and Ukraine will not be left without help, and Hungary will do everything in its power to alleviate the suffering of the Ukrainian people, the politician added.
The parties reviewed Hungary’s aid policy toward Transcarpathia. Governor Viktor Mikita thanked Hungary for its assistance and highlighted the continuous and well-organized support of the Hungarian Ecumenical Charity, which has helped 250 institutions in the province of Transcarpathia alone to receive and care for internally displaced persons.
