Hungary: Orban threatens to withdraw support for Ukraine

Hungary: Orban threatens to withdraw support for Ukraine

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban used a harsh tone towards Ukraine in parliament in Budapest. Orban said that Hungary will not support Ukraine in international issues until the government in Kiev restores previous rights to ethnic Hungarians in Ukraine.
Orban also said Hungary is in no rush to ratify Sweden’s entry into NATO, marking another delay in a process that has been stalled in parliament since last year. Sweden’s application for membership is pending because approval by Hungary and Turkey is still pending.

Hungary is often viewed as a deviant country in the European Union. For example in immigration policy. China wants to take advantage of the special role played by Hungary and expand its influence in Europe.

Hungary fell out with Ukraine after Kiev passed a law in 2017 restricting the use of minority languages ​​in schools, which also affects the rights of about 150,000 ethnic Hungarians.

He added that his government would fight for the rights of ethnic Hungarians in western Ukraine.

After the presidential elections, Zelensky announced a draft law to protect minorities

Orban’s comments come after EU President Ursula von der Leyen presented a vision for an enlarged European Union that would include Ukraine earlier this month. EU member states are due to decide in December whether to allow Ukraine to begin accession negotiations, a move that requires unanimous support from all 27 member states.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said after his election in 2019 that he considered it necessary to draft a law to protect the rights of minorities, especially in the religious and linguistic fields.

If Kiev gets the green light for EU accession talks, it could see it as a victory in its struggle with Moscow, as the country seeks not only to fend off Russian forces but also to free itself from Russian geopolitical influence and improve and strengthen relations with the West. .
