SZIJJÁRTÓ: NEW UKRAINIAN PRESIDENT 'NEW HOPE' FOR HUNGARY

 

Hungary sees Volodymyr Zelensky, Ukraine’s new president, as a “new hope” and hopes that his recent encouraging statements become reality, Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said during a break in a meeting with his EU counterparts in Brussels. If the new president’s words are reflected in actions and if the Transcarpathian Hungarian community regains its rights, Hungary will be happy to get back to cooperating closely with Ukraine, Szijjártó told Hungarian reporters. Hungary sees a possibility for this with Zelensky’s taking office, he said, adding, at the same time, that “there are many whose interests run counter to good Ukrainian-Hungarian relations.”
Meanwhile, Szijjártó slammed as “unprecedented, unacceptable and un-European” a series of searches carried out by Ukrainian authorities at the homes of the leaders of Transcarpathian Hungarian organisations on Monday morning.
