Peter Szijjarto made another scandalous statement

Hungary has made yet another scandalous statement about helping Ukraine in the full-scale war waged against it by the aggressor country Russia. Budapest said it would not participate in the 100 billion euro NATO fund proposed by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg to help Kyiv.

This statement was made by Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto, who called Stoltenberg's idea "crazy." The Hungarian Foreign Minister was quoted by Reuters.

Szijjarto confirmed that Budapest had previously opposed the plan.

"Hungary will stay away from the crazy NATO mission, despite all the pressure," the Hungarian minister said.

Earlier, government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said that Hungary would not support NATO's proposals, which "could bring the Alliance closer to war or turn it from a defensive coalition into an offensive one."

As a reminder, Jens Stoltenberg initiated the creation of a five-year fund of allied contributions totaling $100 billion for Ukraine. The relevant package is to be signed by the leaders of the Alliance member states at the July summit in Washington.

As reported by OBOZ.UA:

, Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto is not the first to make a scandalous statement about Ukraine. Earlier, he said that the presence of NATO troops in Ukraine would mean the beginning of World War III. According to him, if the Alliance sends its troops to the territory of Ukraine, it could cross a "red line."

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban was outraged by the fact that the West was too active in helping Ukraine. He believes that this is leading to the suffering of the European middle class.
