Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has sent a letter to László Brenzovics, the leader of Ukraine’s ethnic Hungarian KMKSZ party, congratulating him on their success in the recent local elections, Orbán’s press chief said on Wednesday.
The Hungarian community in Transcarpathia demonstrated once again the power of cooperation in the October 25 ballot, Bertalan Havasi quoted Orbán as saying.
The prime minister said in his letter that “the result of the vote clearly shows that Transcarpathian Hungarians are proud of their thousand year old roots and by taking their future in their hands want to thrive as Hungarians in their homeland”.
“I believe that the retained and newly gained mayoral and parliamentary seats are important guarantees for the development projects launched in Transcarpathia in recent years to continue,” Orbán said.
