In Brussels, confirm the information that the Hungarian representatives for the third time blocked the meeting with the participation of Ukraine. The reason for this blocking, like the previous two, is that the Hungarians make claims to Kiev in connection with the infringement of the rights of national minorities. So, Budapest’s particular discontent was caused by the recent transfer of units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to areas of Transcarpathia, where ethnic Hungarians live compactly. Budapest also demands that Kiev repeal the discriminatory law “On Education”, which even instructs national minority schools to conduct instruction only in Ukrainian.
Earlier, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Siyarto repeatedly stated that Budapest would block all EU-and Euro-Atlantic initiatives of Ukraine until Kiev corrects the situation.
According to Siyayrto, Hungary is ready to block the participation of President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in the July NATO summit.
