Zsolt Németh, the head of parliament’s foreign affairs committee, has expressed hope that recent changes in Ukraine will enable the restoration of Hungarian-Ukrainian relations.
Addressing the 27th Transcarpathian Summer University in Synevyrs’ka Poliana (Felsoszinever) in western Ukraine, Németh said Hungary hoped that the outcome of Ukraine’s recent presidential election meant that “the Poroshenko era has come to an end and with it so will the institutionalized, centrally organized anti-Hungarian measures”.
According to MTI, Németh said Hungary has high hopes for the future policies of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
At present, Hungary’s job is to get the major world powers to see how Ukraine’s education and language laws violate minority rights in the country, he said. Hungary therefore will continue to block Ukraine’s aspirations to join NATO and will continue to stand up for Transcarpathian Hungarians, he added.
