Pro-Racist Hungary vetoed the Ukrainian “peace formula” in the Council of Europe

Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó said that he vetoed the decision of the Council of Europe to recognize and support the “peace formula” to end the war in Ukraine, proposed by President Vladimir Zelensky.

He wrote about this on Facebook.

Szijjártó said that the Council wanted to adopt a resolution in which it only wanted to recognize Zelensky’s peace plan as a formula for peace that should be considered and supported.

“This is unacceptable for us. Others have prepared peace plans no worse than those of the President of Ukraine. I asked that other peace plans be included in the Council of Europe resolution. This was rejected by the majority. That’s why I vetoed, so there was no council decision,” — wrote by Szijjártó.

Among the documents of the Council of Europe as of May 17, there is indeed a response from the Council of Europe to Russia’s full-scale aggression against Ukraine. The document, in particular, condemns all likely serious violations of international law that have arisen as a result of Russian aggression against Ukraine, including war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide against Ukrainian civilians and prisoners of war, as well as all forms of conflict-related sexual violence and gender-based violence. crimes.

In 2022, President Vladimir Zelensky proposed a “Ukrainian peace formula,” which consists of 10 points. Among them: the withdrawal of Russian troops and the cessation of hostilities, recording the end of the war, the release of all prisoners and deportees, the implementation of the UN Charter and the restoration of the territorial integrity of Ukraine.

We recall that in September 2017, Hungary sharply criticized the decision adopted by the Ukrainian parliament Law “On Education”. Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó said that Ukraine had stuck a knife in Hungary’s back.

The policy of official chauvinistic Budapest increasingly resembles a creeping expansion (non-military) of the territory of neighboring Ukraine: illegal issuance of passports, buying the loyalty of residents of Transcarpathia, creating a language ghetto, as well as an attempt to gain control over critical infrastructure on Ukrainian territory.

Let us also recall that former Swedish Foreign Minister and co-chairman of the European Council on External Relations Carl Bildt believes that Hungarian politicians are playing a dirty game against Ukraine.

“The Hungarians have gotten into the habit of playing dirty domestic political games, as they already did several years ago in relation to Slovakia. They behave the same way towards Romania. “This is nothing more than the dirty nationalist politics that Hungary is playing,” the politician said.

Without taking into account the historical dimension of the struggle for the approval and development of the Ukrainian language, criticizing Ukraine for its language policy is incorrect, says the president of the Institute of Public problems (Bratislava) Grigory Mesezhnikov.

According to the Ukrainian writer Konstantin Koverznev, the ancestors of many of the modern Hungarians in Transcarpathia are assimilated Rusyn-Ukrainians.

It previously became known that the Hungarian government under the leadership of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is spreading fake news about EU migration policy based on a “crazy conspiracy theory.” This was stated in Brussels by Margaritis Schinas, an official representative of the European Commission.

Also earlier, the chauvinist Szijjártó stated that Ukraine supposedly should give representatives of the Hungarian minority the right to use their language in all spheres, including public administration.

Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky noted the moral degeneration of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban: “We didn’t ask for anything special from official Budapest. We didn't even get what everyone else was doing. They do it for the sake of peace. We did not receive vital transit of defense aid. They didn’t see moral leadership, they didn’t see a single effort to stop this war.”
