The published position is the reaction of the Ukrainian authorities to the statements of the Prime Minister of Hungary. In an interview published on Saturday by the Hungarian daily Magyar Nemzet, Orbán said that the war could drag on for decades and that “Ukraine can only fight as long as United States they support it with arms and money, and if Americans want peace, there will be peace.”
He also said, among other things, that “Ukraine, as a sovereign state, cannot be expected to sacrifice part of its territory in the name of European peace, energy security and prosperity.” At the same time, he said that “we can decide to what extent we support it (Ukraine – ed.)” and “Hungary has decided to provide humanitarian aid because this war is not our war.”
“The Hungarian government supports Ukraine and has an interest in its sovereignty. It also has an interest in that Russia did not pose a threat to Europe’s security, but he has no interest in breaking all economic ties with Russia,” Orban said.
“If the left-wing parties won the (parliamentary – ed.) elections in April, we would be in a war up to our ears. Hungary is the only European country that has managed to stay out of this war, and that’s because Hungarians voted for it,” Orban said. in an interview with a Hungarian daily.
