‘I won’t perish for their motherland’ – Ukrainian-Hungarians feel they are fighting for someone else’s country

As the Western world praises Ukrainian President Zelensky, there is no denying his atrocious record of support for minority rights in his own country, a fact many ethnic Hungarians have not forgotten as they are pushed to fight for a government that has shown them hatred

The minister said that the original laws still in force in 2015 should be reinstated, and called the inability to establish Hungarian-language schools unacceptable. Since 2015, a raft of Ukrainian laws have not only curtailed the rights of Hungarians but also other ethnic and cultural groups living in Ukraine.

“The concentrated attacks against Hungarians and anti-Hungarian actions make it very difficult to make decisions in the coming period that require Hungary to make sacrifices in order to support Ukraine,” he said.

“Therefore, we expect Ukraine to respect the rights of the Hungarian national community, and we expect the European Union to act in this matter,” he added.
