On May 30, 2023, a video with a map of Ukraine without Crimea was published on the Hungarian government’s YouTube channel. On behalf of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, the Charge d’Affaires of Ukraine in Hungary made an official demarche to the Hungarian side.
Hungary has to stop the provocations and adhere to the international obligations undertaken within the framework of membership in the UN, the EU and NATO. Playing along with the aggressive policy of кussia does not contribute to the prompt restoration of peace in Europe, which the Hungarian government advocates in public,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine said in a statement.
As reported, Hungary blocked the disbursement of a EUR 500m tranche from the European Peace Facility (EPF) for Ukraine.
