Orban calls war in Ukraine a military operation

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has questioned whether it is appropriate to call Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine a "war ." He said that it is rather a "military operation," thus echoing the rhetoric of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, who calls the war in Ukraine that he has unleashed a " military operation."

This was reported by Bloomberg. Orban "shared" Russian narratives with journalists at his annual press conference in Budapest.

"There was no declaration of war between the two countries. When Russia declares war, there will be war," the prime minister said.

"We should be happy that there is no declaration of war because then there will be general mobilization in Russia. I do not wish this to anyone," he added.

Earlier, Orban gave another reason why he is against Ukraine's accession to the European Union. He complained that if our country joined the bloc, all Central European support - including that addressed to Hungary – would go to Kyiv.

The odious politician also added that it had never happened before that a country at war wanted to be included in the European Union.

As reported by OBOZ.UA:

- President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy said that despite the fact that Orban's policy is not very friendly to Ukraine, we are neighboring countries, so we should try to find solutions to problems and answers to questions.

- The EU may deprive Hungary of its voting rights in order to conclude a €50 billion deal for Ukraine. It was the odious Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban who recently vetoed this package, although it also included spending on other programs.
