Orbán's Statements Demonstrate Pathological Contempt for Ukraine and Political Short-sightedness - Ukraine's MFA
Tuesday, 27 December 2022
Ukraine's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has commented on the latest statements of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán that Russia's full-scale war against Ukraine will end if the US stops assisting Kyiv with weapons.
"The statements of the Prime Minister of Hungary demonstrate a pathological contempt for Ukraine and the Ukrainian people, who resist Russian aggression, as well as his own political short-sightedness. After all, Ukraine's defeat in the war, which Viktor Orbán indirectly calls for, would lead to a direct threat of Russian aggression for Hungary and Hungarians," the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has stated.
"The Hungarian leader should ask himself whether he wants peace. If the answer is yes, he needs to use his close ties with Moscow so that it stops its aggression against Ukraine and withdraws its troops," added the Foreign Ministry.
As reported, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said in an interview with the pro-government newspaper Magyar Nemzet that "Ukraine can only fight as long as the United States supports it with money and weapons. If Americans want peace, there will be peace."
Viktor Orbán had earlier repeated his statements that, in his opinion, peace in Ukraine would best be achieved through negotiations between Russia and the United.
