European Union Summit: Orban calls for the repeal of Ukraine’s decisions

European Union Summit: Orban calls for the repeal of Ukraine’s decisions

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban called on the European Union to remove two major resolutions supporting Ukraine from the agenda of the Brussels summit in mid-December. In his letter to European Council President Charles Michel, the right-wing nationalist warned that otherwise there would be a risk of the summit “failure.”

In detail, Orban called for suspending the planned start signal for negotiations to join the European Union with Ukraine at the present time. The EU Commission’s proposal to support Ukraine with an additional €50 billion and increase the multi-year budget framework is not ready for a decision either.

“A clear lack of consensus will inevitably lead to failure,” Orban warned, referring to the meeting of European heads of state and government on December 14-15. Both decisions require unanimity.

Argument about money

In his first letter to Michel, Orban called for consideration of European support for Ukraine, as well as sanctions imposed on Russia. Diplomatic circles suspect that Orban wants to achieve the release of 13 billion euros for his country. The European Union had frozen the funds due to rule of law violations.
