PM’s Office Condemns Desecration of Reformed Church in Transcarpathia
Hungary Today 2018.05.02.
The Prime Minister’s Office has condemned the recent vandalisation of the Reformed church of Berehove (Beregszász) as “shocking and appalling”, saying it was the “desecration of a holy place” which represents an important centre of the ethnic Hungarian community in Ukraine.
The most recent incident targeting the Hungarian community’s religious centre violates the religious tolerance that has always characterised residents in Transcarpathia, the statement said. The Hungarian government expresses its solidarity with the ethnic Hungarian community and expects the Ukrainian authorities to reveal the background leading to the attack and find the perpetrators in order to prevent similar instances from happening in the future as well as guarantee the security of ethnic Hungarians in Transcapathia, it added.
