The conflict between Kiev and Budapest escalated in September 2018, when the network has a video in which residents of the Transcarpathian region get a Hungarian passport and bring oath of allegiance to Hungary. Later it turned out that the consular officers issued passports and other documents.

In June 2018, the Hungarian government decided to introduce the post of a “foreign Minister, responsible for the development of Transcarpathian region and programme for the development of kindergartens in the Carpathian basin” after it became aware of the violation of the rights of its compatriots in the region.
