“If they don’t want to interact in a neighborly way, for example, the Council of Europe, the number of Ukrainian delegates to three times the amount of Hungarian, and we can influence the final decision in Hungary as well. If they resort to blackmail, not to quiet negotiations, is not a reliable partnership”, – Aryev told.
The MP also stressed that the government’s desire to block the rapprochement between the EU and Ukraine makes Hungary an unreliable partner for all. He added that the growth of nationalist sentiment in Hungary has long been concerned about the EU.
