"Failed state": Hungarian Prime Minister Orban spoke about "pre-war" Ukraine

Ukraine could not be called a prosperous state even before the start of Russia's military operation. Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban stated this in an interview with Kossuth Rádió TV channel.


As Orban noted, Kyiv could not fully manage its economy. Now Ukraine needs at least 5 billion euros a month to avoid an economic collapse. The European Union and the United States are negotiating with each other on how to share the burden of maintaining Ukraine. In addition, negotiations are underway between European countries.

According to the Hungarian political leader, such a state is, by definition, incompetent, because in fact its entire economy depends on external injections. And this Orban has not yet raised the issue of military supplies to the same Ukraine.

The Prime Minister of Hungary noted that even before February 24, Ukraine could not fully cope with state administration and the economy.

Orban stressed that Hungary will also have to decide whether to participate in the process of maintaining Ukraine. He acknowledged that Budapest faces a difficult choice. It is necessary to decide whether the country has money to transfer it to Ukraine, and in what form to transfer it - donations or loans.

According to the prime minister, the country will be able to finally answer this question only after two or three months of negotiations with the European Union. He also noted some lull in the growth of gas prices in Europe. This is due to the fact that stocks in gas storages were replenished in the summer, and therefore demand fell. However, prices will rise again in the future. After all, European countries will have to turn to the use of their reserves in the winter.

As for Hungary, it has previously entered into long-term contracts with Russia to ensure gas supplies. Although the terrorist attacks damaged the Nord Stream gas pipeline, preventing the transit of gas to Europe, the Turkish Stream pipeline is intact. Hungary, according to Orban, will not allow sabotage against him.

Orban again criticized EU sanctions against Russia. According to him, Europe is forced to pay a "sanctions premium" for energy. But Hungary has so far managed to avoid this, although it is in the same European market and suffers to some extent from what is happening elsewhere in Europe.

The sanctions were introduced by the European Union as a tool to end the conflict in Ukraine. However, Orban stressed, trying to “dig a hole for the Russians”, the European Union fell into this hole itself and now offers to dig it further.

    Ukrainian Transnistria or Transnistrian Ukraine does not leave anyone indifferent, the management of the world is the dream of many, many brave ones. "Coordination of foreign policy issues" is not complete without coordination, the Americans are coordinated there, in the Ukrainian-Pridnestrovian region. Speaking of "decision-making centers", the parties "grinding" the issue of the Moldo-Pridnestrovian settlement was frozen, after which they (the frantic black-and-white Aryans of the Soviet thought of the Moldo-Pridnestrovian bottling) along the way were very offended by the fact that with "them" not consulted, as a result, they received SVO and economic "constipation" in the EU and sanctions against the Russian Federation. Hitting the foreheads of the interlocutors is the crown number of the Ukrainian-Pridnestrovian region, they are fighting, and we are watching from the sidelines. wassat

          With regard to today's Ukraine, it would be more correct to say: "in the winter without heating period." hi

    Orban seems to be the only politician in the EU who thinks in a balanced way.

      Yes, unfortunately Prime Minister Orban is the only one in Europe who thinks sensibly and rationally!

      There are enough of those. Those who care about national interests, not the interests of the EU.
      Only in the media environment they get much less often.

        They just don't rise to such posts. The fact that Orban reached the chair of the prime minister is not just a miracle, but a flaw in the CIA and the State Department.

    Most of the states - the former republics of the USSR are not viable and have existed for 30 years due to handouts from Russia under the guise of loans (Ukraine, Belarus, Central Asia), payments for the transit of Russian goods (Tribalty, Ukraine, Belarus), migrants' salaries (here you get tired of listing).
    Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan - these are more or less coping with their own natural resources.

    Agree to share the burden of maintenance. Poor fellows.
    Russia alone dumped about 200 green lards into this stillborn territorial formation.

    In Europe, they are probably now expecting with horror the strengthening of the position of the Republicans in the US Congress. Because Now the main sponsor of Ukraine is the United States. The Republicans, on the other hand, can reconsider funding, and then force Europe to increase its financial injections into Ukraine.

    such a state is by definition incompetent
    As the saying goes, you can't take words out of a song. Orban was the first in the EU, despite tough propaganda, to understand this and decided to at least partially follow his own (Hungarian) path. Therefore, today he does not jump from the word winter, but does everything so that the Hungarians go through it in the usual way. And for others, the gut is thin and Russophobia rolls over.

    By 2014, the economy of Ukraine was torn to shreds, which is why Kyiv started a war in 2014, in the hope that the West and the United States would pull Ukraine out of the "cataclysm", but this did not happen, and the economic recession turned into an uncontrollable fall, like a paratrooper with unopened parachute.

    The state was incompetent under Yanukovych, and then it committed suicide.

    Duc does not need to transfer anything to banderlogs, not a single penny to the cashier, they will plunder anyway. It is better to "show concern" about some Ukrainian territories inhabited by ethnic Hungarians and take them from Ukraine under your wing, in order to thereby reduce the burden of their maintenance by the Kuev. Why not help? And there, you see, the Romanians will follow this example and also "facilitate the expenses" of the cuev for the maintenance of territories with densely residing Romanians by transferring them under their jurisdiction.

    Orban turned out to be a brave comrade.
    He thinks with his head, has his own opinion, realistically assesses the situation.
