Slovak Foreign Minister criticizes his Hungarian counterpart's speech

Jul 31, 2023

Slovak Foreign Minister Miroslav Vlahovsky criticized his Hungarian counterpart Peter Szijjarto after he spoke about the Russian-Ukrainian war.


According to Ukrinform, he posted the relevant post on Twitter.

"Dear Peter, please don't tell me what other people think before you ask them. The EU consists of 27 countries. I don't recall a debate when we said the war would last 4 years," Vlahovsky emphasized.

The Slovak foreign minister also reminded that the problem is not the EU, but Russia, which could end the Russian-Ukrainian war tomorrow.

"The war can end tomorrow. The problem is not the EU, the problem is Russia," he added.

Earlier, Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó said in a speech that:

"the European Union believes that the war in Ukraine will last for another four years. How many people will die in four years? How many Hungarians will die in four years? And how much more devastation will be created in four years, which someone will have to repair later?"
