On April 27, the European Commission launched a disciplinary procedure, as a result of which the funding of Hungary by the European Union will be reduced. Hungary responded with a statement mentioning the war in Ukraine.
“We must keep Hungary out of the war, make sure Hungarian families don’t pay for the war,” he wrote. Representative of the Hungarian government Zoltan Kovacs.
In response to these words, Nikolenko said that Budapest’s attempts to entangle its position on Russia’s war against Ukraine in the context of discussions with the EU on the rule of law are inappropriate and unacceptable.
