Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said news reports of Hungary vetoing financial aid to Ukraine are “fake news”.
“Today’s news was all about Hungary vetoing financial assistance to Ukraine. This is fake news. Hungary is ready to give financial assistance to Ukraine, on a bilateral basis. No veto, no blackmailing,” PM Orbán said on Twitter on Tuesday, responding to news reports on the ECOFIN meeting earlier in the day. “We do want to convince EU member states however that common EU debt is not the solution. If we continue to go down the road towards a debt community, we will not be able to turn back. We envision a different future for Europe. One built on strong member states, instead of huge piles of common debt,” PM Orbán said.
