“While we are taking in refugee children from Ukraine in 1,300 schools and kindergartens in Hungary, there are 99 Hungarian primary and secondary schools in Ukraine that are at risk of being closed down because of the local education law,” Szijjártó said on Facebook.
Several laws have been passed in Ukraine since 2015 that gradually infringed on the rights of the neighbouring country’s minorities to use their mother tongue, he said.
Over the past eight years, Ukrainian authorities kept promising us to resolve this problem, but they have in fact done nothing to that effect,” the foreign minister said, adding that he informed the UN assistant secretary-general about Hungary’s position on Ukraine’s integration.
Meanwhile Orbán Vows to 'Protect Farmers Against Ukraine Grain Dumping'
“We will protect farmers from the harmful effects of Ukrainian grain dumping,” Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Facebook on Friday.
At a European Union summit that had ended earlier in the day, countries of central Europe agreed to cooperate and ensure protection to agricultural producers against “harmful effects of Ukrainian grain dumping,” Orbán said.
He added that their actions would be coordinated by Mateusz Morawiecki, his Polish counterpart.
