Hungary stays out of conflict

Excerpt from Wall Street Journal (


“Hungary is not part of the conflict,” Viktor Orban said, according to state newswire MTI.
Hungarians are safe in Hungary and they are also safe in Ukraine’s Transcarpatia region, he said. The Hungarian government is working to ensure that remains so, he added.


Editor's note: Orban is keeping Hungary out of the Ukrainian conflict even though there is a small Hungarian minority in the western Ukraine. The conflict is clearly between the Ukrainians and the Russians. It doesn't look like the Hungarian minority is in any danger but with the minority language law scraped by the new Ukrainian government, anything could be possible.
