We are at the Csengersima border crossing. This is the Hungarian-Romanian border. This is also where refugees – Ukrainian refugees – are arriving in Hungary, after having travelled through Romania. Thousands of them are coming every day, by car. The flow is continuous across six lanes. The police are working flat out, everything is going smoothly, and the Red Cross is helping the children, handing out food and water. We are expecting a bigger wave next week, so we also need to increase the capacity of this border crossing point, with more people working here. Based on the orderly situation I have seen today, I think that if we increase capacity at this crossing point, then next week we will be able to work just as efficiently.
