Hungarian Prime Minister Orban spoke with the head of the Kyiv regime Zelensky at the EU summit

During the EU summit in Brussels, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky met with Prime Minister Viktor Orban. Several European media write about this at once.

Shortly after the meeting, Hungarian State Secretary for Foreign Relations Zoltan Kovacs announced that Budapest would continue to provide humanitarian and financial assistance to Ukraine. But Kyiv will not be able to expect military assistance from Hungary even now.



We support an immediate ceasefire to avoid further deaths. Hungary belongs to the peace camp

- Kovacs quoted Orban's words addressed to Vladimir Zelensky.

Recall that relations between Budapest and Kyiv can hardly be called cloudless. The main reason for the contradictions lies in the situation with the Hungarian national minority in the Transcarpathian region of Ukraine. As you know, more than 150 thousand Hungarians live here, taking into account children from mixed marriages and people of Hungarian origin, the number of Hungarians in the country may be somewhat larger.

Budapest has long supported the desire of Transcarpathian Hungarians to more clearly define their national identity, which, of course, does not please Zelensky's nationalist regime. The media often report facts of discrimination against the Hungarian population in Ukraine. Orban repeatedly warned Ukraine about the inadmissibility of such actions. Refusing military assistance to Kyiv, he claims that he does not want to set up the Hungarian population of the Transcarpathian region.

Finally, do not forget about two other important points. Firstly, Hungary is an important buyer of Russian energy resources, and due to this, the situation with the provision of resources here is better than in other neighboring countries. Secondly, Orban has long been known as a critic of the globalist model, he advocates traditional values, and the policies promoted by the US and the EU cannot suit him.

          Nooo ... Hungary is not as easy to strangle as Serbia.
          That is, I agree - there is no chance, and Orban will also be broken on the knee, if it sticks completely across the throat ... but it will not be as easy as crushing Vucic. There are many options for an ugly development of events for the West :))

            They say that Orban is a creature of the Pope. and no one has enough gunpowder to quarrel with him - he will fly in so that he does not wave his cowards away, and first of all he will fly from the USA, where the positions of Catholics are extremely strong. Therefore, Orban and rushing with a drill - they will not raise their tail on him

    What kind of ceasefire can there be? Two now irreconcilable enemies have converged on the battlefield. The war is about destruction, not a truce

    Well, at least the Hungarians do not promise military assistance and so far keep their word. Interestingly, did you talk about the Carpathian Hungarians?

    Orban was the only one at the summit who did not applaud Zelensky. The man deserves respect, the herd feeling is absent, but common sense is present.

    It looks like the handshake is strong, but for some reason the Borgia ring on Orban's hand is not visible smile Something tells me that Hungary will not have long to deny the supply of weapons to the outside. Break them too

      It's not about the supply of weapons, but about the opposition to Ukraine's entry into the EU and NATO.

        You might think that all other EU members are eager to accept Ukraine into their ranks laughing The only difference is that Hungary is not hypocritical and does not make false promises
