Orban comments on his letter with an ultimatum on Ukraine

Dec 1, 2023

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has commented on his letter to European Council President Charles Michel, in which he threatened to block all EU aid to Ukraine, as well as the country's future accession to the European Union.

He said this on Kossuth radio, Index reports.

Orban said that this letter was important for Hungary's independence.

"If we agree, there is an EU position, if not, there is no position. We should not allow ourselves to be made to feel remorseful because we disagree on something," he said.


Orban reiterated that negotiations on Ukraine's accession to the EU are not in Hungary's interests and should not be on the agenda.

He argues that the proposal to start negotiations with Ukraine has not been prepared and that it is necessary to consult with everyone, to coordinate interests, and only then to make a proposal. Therefore, in his opinion, accession talks should not even begin yet.
