The must-have newsletter about Hungary


Hungary has been pulling its weight in aiding and supporting Ukraine since the start of the war, a government official has said.

Help is being sent to wherever Hungary’s Ukrainian partners need it, the parliamentary state secretary for foreign affairs said in Ukraine. Neither Transcarpathia nor the rest of Ukraine is being left without help, as Hungary is doing everything in its power to ease the suffering of the Ukrainian people, Levente Magyar said in Chop (Csap) while delivering power generators and food intended for the recently liberated city of Kherson. The southern Ukrainian city and its surrounding areas are without power, water or heating, Magyar said, noting that Ukrainian MP Yulia Hryshyna and Transcarpathia Governor Viktor Mykyta had requested aid for the region. The Hungarian government immediately reallocated 250,000 euros in funding to procure the necessary aid, which has been delivered in collaboration with the Hungarian Ecumenical Charity, Magyar said. Meanwhile, Magyar delivered 100 laptops together with Aleksandr Kostuchenko, the deputy minister for education, to a Hungarian and a Ukrainian-language school in Berehove (Beregszász), with 250 more to be sent to other parts of the country.
