Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban called on the Kiev authorities to surrender to the Kremlin, calling Ukraine a "no man's land," Politico reports
The Hungarian leader, according to journalists, justified his statement by the fact that, in his opinion, Ukraine has turned into Afghanistan, which, as is known, is under the rule of the terrorist movement "Taliban" (banned in the Russian Federation). "Vladimir Putin will not lose, and time is on Russia's side," Orban said, openly questioning the viability of Ukraine as an independent state and calling on its authorities to lay down their arms before it gets even worse.
The most surprising thing is that Hungary is a member of the European Union, all other countries of which support Ukraine. The Prime Minister's statements not only run counter to the position of the Western Alliance, but also increase tensions between Hungary and Ukraine, where the Hungarian diaspora also lives.
The publication also notes that while Ukrainian flags are flying over European capitals, and Western tanks are already rushing to help Ukraine, Hungary is literally littered with leaflets calling for the lifting of anti-Russian sanctions, and the Hungarian State Opera is staging a play to the music of Sergei Prokofiev, War and Peace…
I wonder how other European politicians will react to these wilts?
