Hungary is currently preparing Prime Minister Viktor Orbánʼs visit to Ukraine. It says it will happen when "the time comes."

This was stated by the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Hungary Péter Szijártó, in an interview with Index.

"When the time comes, the Prime Minister of Hungary will make such a trip, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is currently working on its preparation," the minister noted.

Szijártó also said that he himself is ready to visit Ukraine, if there is an invitation.

"If I receive an invitation and we can agree in advance on the main topics and dates of the visit, I will be happy to go. But so far no such invitation has been received," he stated.

  • Earlier, at a meeting with journalists in Budapest, Orbán stated that he does not believe in Ukraineʼs victory and believes that the country is "gradually turning into an unmanageable ruin." According to Orbán, "Russiaʼs goal is to turn Ukraine into an ungovernable ruin" so that the West cannot claim it "as a prize." He said that the Russian Federation has already succeeded in this, and now Ukraine, like Afghanistan, is a "no manʼs land."
  • After that, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine summoned the Ambassador of Hungary to Ukraine Istvan Ijdyartó. He was strongly protested because of the disparaging remarks of the Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orbán.
