Former Lithuanian foreign minister says it is Hungary who is light-years away from EU, not Ukraine
The former head of the Lithuanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Linas Linkevičius, has criticized Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban for his humiliating comments about our country. He stated that it is Hungary who is moving away from the EU by light years, not Ukraine.
Linkevicius wrote about this on his account on X, formerly known as Twitter. He emphasized that while Orban criticizes Ukraine, Hungary itself has seriously drifted away from the European Union.
"According to Orban, Ukraine is light years away from EU membership. Perhaps it seems so because he sees Ukraine, which is undoubtedly together with the EU, from his own country, which itself is light years away from it," Linkevičius said.
As a reminder, the administration of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who is called a friend of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, has once again spoken negatively about Ukraine's potential membership in the European Union. They said that our country allegedly failed to fulfill the requirements, so the EU should offer Kyiv a "privileged partnership" instead of membership.
European Union diplomats express dissatisfaction with Hungary's position, which is constantly changing its demands for military assistance to Ukraine in its fight against Russia and for the country's membership. Budapest's position was called a "Russian nesting doll".
As reported by OBOZ.UA, Hungary threatens to veto a record-breaking €50 billion EU aid package to Ukraine. However, the EU already has a "plan B" for such a case. Representatives of the union assure that our country will receive funding even if Viktor Orban's government implements its threats.
