The speaker of the Hungarian parliament spoke frankly about Ukraine and the West.

The speaker of the Hungarian parliament spoke frankly about Ukraine and the West.

The Western world made a serious mistake in the situation with Ukraine, said Laszlo Kever, speaker of the Hungarian National Assembly.

“The West made a strategic mistake when it tried not only to take Ukraine out of Moscow’s sphere of interest, but also to turn it into a large military base aimed at Russia,” he said.

According to the politician, sanctions have harmed Europe much more than Russia.

“As the sanctions policy began, it became more and more obvious that there were efforts, not necessarily European initiatives, of which the European political elite for some reason became enthusiastic supporters: to destroy Russia economically, politically, in every sense, separate from Europe in order to create a new Iron Curtain” Kever added.


At the same time, he stressed that Budapest stands for the sovereignty of Ukraine.


The armed conflict should be resolved as soon as possible, and then a new European security system should be created, in which the interests of all countries of the continent will be fairly taken into account, the head of parliament concluded.
