Orban opposes the plan to allocate 50 billion euros to Ukraine

Jun 30, 2023

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has opposed the European Commission's plan to provide Ukraine with more financial support.

Orban made the statement during a speech on state radio on Friday, Reuters reports.

"One thing is clear, we Hungarians ... will not give more money to Ukraine until they tell us where the previous 70 billion euros went," the Hungarian prime minister said.


According to Orban, Hungary has not yet received access to the fund, which is financed by a previous joint loan from European countries.

Hungary and Poland are the only EU members that have not received recovery funds, which the European Commission has blocked due to allegations that their governments are harming democracy and the rule of law.
