Veto of Ukraine Aid by Hungary is 'Fake News', Says Orbán
News reports of Hungary vetoing financial aid to Ukraine is “fake news”, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Twitter on Tuesday, responding to news reports on the ECOFIN meeting earlier in the day.

“Today’s news was all about Hungary vetoing financial assistance to Ukraine. This is fake news. Hungary is ready to give financial assistance to Ukraine, on a bilateral basis. No veto, no blackmailing,” the tweet said.

“We do want to convince EU member states however that common EU debt is not the solution. If we continue to go down the road towards a debt community, we will not be able to turn back. We envision a different future for Europe. One built on strong member states, instead of huge piles of common debt,” Orbán said.
