6 Ukraine — Hungary
The tension between Kiev and Budapest is growing. Budapest no longer intends to tolerate the provocative statements of the Ukrainian leadership towards Hungary. After the flawless victory in the parliamentary elections of the Hungarian Prime Minister’s political party «Fidesz» — Viktor Orban responded harshly to Vladimir Zelensky. “We had to deal with our problems, the major international mass media, and, in the end, with the Ukrainian president. We have never had so many opponents at once. But if we work together — we can’t be stopped” — Viktor Orban stated to his voters. He gave a clear signal to Kiev to stop any attempts to use Hungary in their anti-Russian interests. Viktor Orban compared Vladimir Zelensky with the pro-European opposition, the “EU bureaucracy”, and the man behind the color revolutions — George Soros himself. Earlier Budapest refused to supply weapons to Ukraine, and imposed a ban on the passage of such supplies via Hungary. Constantine Reztsov, specially for the ANNA NEWS
