Russia-Ukraine Conflict: Hungarian Govt Monitoring the Situation

2018.11.26.

The Hungarian government is in “continuous communication” with Ukraine’s ethnic Hungarian KMKSZ party over recent developments in Ukraine, Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó said on Monday.

Speaking in Bonn, Szijjártó called it “obviously bad news” that “martial law has been declared in a neighbouring country”. It is in Hungary’s interest that peace should prevail “in countries in which lots of Hungarians live”, he said, adding that security for Ukraine‘s 150,000-strong Hungarian community was “crucially important”.

Szijjártó said hopefully the situation in Ukraine would be resolved soon.
