July 15, Ukraine’s foreign Ministry accused Hungary of meddling in the internal politics of the country before the elections to the Verkhovna Rada. The concern of Kiev caused the recent meeting of the Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orban with the Chairman of the society of Hungarian culture of Transcarpathia, Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Vasily Brenzovich in Budapest.

Relations between Ukraine and Hungary deteriorated after a diplomatic row in September 2018. Then, the network appeared the video of the Hungarian Consulate in Transcarpathia, where the Consul distributed in the building of the diplomatic mission passports to Ukrainians and led them to the oath of allegiance to Hungary. It later turned out that the diplomat was not given a passport, and packets of documents for obtaining citizenship. But the incident provoked a scandal, which Ukraine had expelled the Hungarian Consul. Budapest answered the same way. Ukraine has threatened that they will react harshly to such actions of the authorities of the neighbouring state.
