President Katalin Novák received on Thursday Commander of the Hungarian Armed Forces, Romulus Ruszin-Szendi, and Director General of the Military National Security Service, János Béres. Ruszin-Szendi told journalists that he briefed Novák about the armed forces and its development and training activities. “Our situation is reassuring,” he said, adding that Hungary was not under any direct threat in connection with the war in Ukraine. The job of the Hungarian army is to guarantee peace and a safe environment for the Hungarian people, so soldiers are present at the borders and they are cooperating with police forces there, he said. István Kun Szabó, the president’s chief military advisor, said the army normally submits quarterly reports to the president, but due to the war situation and tensions in the Western Balkans, consultations are planned to be held every two weeks.
