President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko met with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg will raise the issue of blocking Hungary meetings of the Commission Ukraine — NATO. About this “Ukrainian news” said the Ambassador of Ukraine to NATO Vadim pristayko.
“This is not the first time that Hungary blocks a meeting of the Commission Ukraine — the NATO at level of Ministers. And Hungary took it on Board and officially declared that it will block all events that are held on a higher level than the level of ambassadors, that is my level. This time the victim was meeting on level of Ministers of defence that, in our opinion, is totally unacceptable, given that the last time the Ministers in this format met with our Minister in 2016”, — he said.
According to him, the actions of Budapest were dissatisfied with several members of NATO. “I know that 11 ambassadors of countries-members of NATO sent a letter to the address of their Hungarian counterparts, which said that NATO is not “a stage for playing such a drama.” For this there is the Venice Commission — and we used this mechanism to provide their recommendations, which Ukraine pledged to carry out. We believed that the Hungarian party understands that it is the only authoritative body whose opinion is listened to,” said Pristayko.
6 Feb Budapest declared the necessity to send the OSCE mission in the Transcarpathian region of Ukraine after the attack on the headquarters of the Society of Hungarian culture of Transcarpathia in Uzhgorod, arson which occurred two days earlier. Unknown had thrown a Molotov cocktail, but the fire managed to be avoided. Vice Prime Minister of Ukraine Vyacheslav Kyrylenko stated in his Twitter that “directly related” to attack Russia.
