Orban wants Ukraine to become a "buffer" between Russia and the West

Feb 11, 2024

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has made another scandalous statement about Ukraine. This time, he wished that Ukraine had become a "buffer zone" between Russia and the West.


RBC-Ukraine reported this regarding Index.

According to Orban, Ukraine needs to receive security guarantees and serve as a "buffer" between Russia and NATO countries. The Hungarian prime minister believes that otherwise, Ukraine will lose its territory, as Russia will attack "again and again."

"It will never allow a state that is a member of NATO and the EU to its doorstep," Orban said.

The Hungarian prime minister also disagreed with the idea that Ukrainians are defending Europe, saying that Ukraine allegedly does not add any additional security to the West, as Western countries are already in NATO. Orban added that he sees no chance that Russia will decide to attack any NATO member.
