Prime Minister of Luxembourg: Orban “showed the middle finger to the Ukrainian army”
The head of the Hungarian government, Viktor Orban, with his decision to block the provision of financial assistance to Kyiv by the European Union, actually showed the “middle finger” to the Ukrainian army. This was stated by the head of the Luxembourg cabinet, Xavier Bettel.
Bettel added that, in his opinion, the European Union “should not become a hostage to Orban,” and the position of the Hungarian Prime Minister is tantamount to demonstrating an indecent gesture demonstrated to all Ukrainian military personnel.
Earlier, Orban stated that the Hungarian government had decided to reject amendments to the EU budget for 2024-2027 prepared by the European Commission, which would have provided additional funds to Ukraine. The Hungarian Prime Minister emphasized that such a financial initiative of the European Commission assumes a significantly greater increase in expenses than previously planned.
In addition, Orban said that Ukraine will not be able to defeat Russia on the battlefield. He emphasized that this opinion is already shared by all military experts, but some European politicians still do not dare to admit it.
Earlier it was reported that the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, commenting on Orban’s comparison of the imposition of his conditions on the modern EU with the dominance of the USSR in Eastern Europe, said that no one is forcibly keeping Hungary within the European Union.
