Following a meeting with the National Security Cabinet, the prime minister said in a video message that the security of the Hungarian people is the government’s priority, thus “Hungary must stay out of this war conflict,” adding, however, that humanitarian aid will of course be provided to Ukraine.
Prime Minister Orbán condemned the Russian aggression and stressed that he believes that European unity will be sustainable and that we can take joint action.
“Our military and designated police units have started working on the Hungarian-Ukrainian border,” he said.
He also stressed that the left’s proposals are unacceptable, as they would endanger Hungary’s energy supply and families’ public utility cost cuts.
PM Viktor Orbán noted that an increased number of Ukrainian citizens arriving in Hungary, possibly seeking refugee status, is within sight, but “we are prepared to care for them, and we will be able to meet this challenge quickly and effectively.”
