Hungary says Russia could declare victory over Ukraine “at any moment”

In addition to calling on NATO not to interfere in the war in Ukraine, Hungarian officials also said that the Russian Federation attacked Ukraine because of its attitude towards national minorities.

Russia will not threaten NATO if the Alliance refuses to “intervene” in a full-scale war in Ukraine.

This was stated by the head of the administration of the Hungarian government Gergely Gulyás, reports Magyar Hirlap.

In particular, the head of the administration of the Hungarian government called incorrect statements of Poland and the Baltic states that if Ukraine loses in a full-scale war with the Russian Federation, the Russian threat will spread to them. According to him, under no circumstances should NATO allow itself to be “drawn into a war by provocations”, and in this case, the Russian Federation allegedly will not pose a threat to the Alliance.

Gergely Gulyás also noted that Russia and Ukraine are in a position from which it is difficult to find a way out. The best option for resolving the conflict would be peace, but “the chances of peace are low.” At the same time, the Russian Federation allegedly has “such an advantage” that “it can declare victory at almost any moment.”

The representative of the Hungarian government assured that Budapest condemns the aggression but does not support the imposition of sanctions against Russia because they do not meet its interests. At the same time, he criticized Europe for becoming dependent on Russian raw materials and, at the same time, said that restoring trade relations with the Russian Federation is in European interests.

And the former Minister of Foreign Affairs of Hungary, Géza Jeszenszky, said that the justification for the Russian invasion of Ukraine was the latter’s attitude towards national minorities. According to him, the war’s end depends on Moscow’s actions.

  • There is concern among European leaders that Hungary could undermine the EU’s unity and security policy at a time when the West seeks to deal with the most significant military crisis in Europe since World War II.
