The foreign minister said Hungarian troops of the multinational Engineer Battalion Tisza stand ready to be deployed at the call of Ukrainian authorities to help in the flood-hit western regions of Ukraine.
Péter Szijjártó, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade, said Hungary has offered to help its neighbour with rescue operations and flood defense.
The Hungarian-Romanian-Slovak-Ukrainian Tisza Battalion’s task is to help rescue people and participate in defense operations in the instances of natural and ecological disasters. The flood has affected Ukraine’s western regions including Ivano-Frankivsk where it has claimed three lives.
