The problem is Russia, not the EU, Wlachovský emphasized

Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó complained that the European Union is allegedly preparing for the war in Ukraine to last another four years. Slovak Foreign Minister Miroslav Wlachovský responded to him by emphasizing that Russia, not the EU, was the problem.

Thus, a video of Szijjártó's statements was distributed by the representative of the Hungarian government Zoltán Kovács. In it, the Hungarian foreign minister complains that the EU is allegedly preparing for a long-term war in Ukraine (to watch the video, scroll to the end of the news).

"The EU believes that the war in Ukraine will last another four years. How many people will die in those four years? How many Hungarians will die in four years? And how much more destruction will be created in four years, which then someone will have to liquidate?", - stated Szijjártó.

In turn, Wlachovský in his Twitter called on his Hungarian colleague not to speak on behalf of those whom he had not asked.

"Dear Péter, please don't tell me what other people think until you ask them. The EU is made up of 27 countries. I don't remember any debate when we said the war would last four years. The war could stop tomorrow. The EU is not the problem, Russia is the problem," the Slovak Foreign Minister emphasized.

He concluded his message with the Hungarian phrase Ruszkik haza! Legyen béke! ("Russians home! Let there be peace!") and added the number "1956," apparently recalling the uprising in Hungary suppressed by Soviet troops.
