The Alliance does not agree with the statements of the Hungarian government regarding the Ukrainian reforms.

The Hungarian government sent a letter to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg with the initiative to revise the program to support Ukraine. This DW on Friday, 25 may, said one of the officials of the Alliance.

However, NATO has no plans to turn off support for Kiev. “NATO has a strong political and practical support for Ukraine, and there are no plans to change anything in this,” – said the source DW. Regarding the content of the letter of the Hungarian government, NATO representative was advised to go to Budapest. DW diplomatic sources have at their disposal Stoltenberg sent a Memorandum entitled “the Initiative to launch a new NATO policy towards Ukraine”.

The document also indicates the shortcomings in Ukrainian reforms, in particular, that led to the failure of the European Union at the end of last year, the tranche of macro-financial assistance in the amount of 600 million euros. “It appears that the Ukrainian government lacks the political will and ability to implement a program of fundamental reforms demanded by international donors,” – said in a Memorandum.

In turn, NATO did not agree with this opinion. “In recent years, Ukraine has implemented significant reforms in the sphere of defense and security, but also in areas including health, education and social security. It is important that Ukraine continues to go through reforms,” the official said of the Alliance.

The focus of the Memorandum is given to the language article of the Ukrainian law on education and thrown to Kiev violations of minority rights. It is also about the recognition of the unconstitutional language law “Kolesnichenko-Kivalov”. “The Ukrainian power has weakened to the point when it lacks the ability to perform the most fundamental duties, such as upholding the rule of law”, – added in the document.

Overall, the Memorandum concludes that “Ukraine has begun to make a secure call to its neighbors, including Hungary”. So Budapest called on NATO to adjust its policies towards Ukraine in the new circumstances. And Ukraine, he offered to withdraw from the operation of laws that “limit the rights of national minorities”, those that belong to NATO countries. “Although this decision certainly does not meet the requirement of non-discrimination, yet it will give an opportunity for Ukraine to stay on the path of integration into NATO”, – consider in Budapest.
