Hungary blocked a tranche of aid from the EU fund for arming Ukraine

Hungary blocked a tranche of aid from the EU fund for arming Ukraine

The message says that Hungary has blocked the allocation of the eighth tranche of aid to Ukraine for the purchase of weapons from the European Peace Fund.

“Budapest, presumably, demanded guarantees that the fund would maintain its global horizon in the future and would not be used exclusively for arming Kiev,” the publication says.

It is specified that the tranche in the amount of 500 million euros should be sent to Ukraine on May 22.
