Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s statements only serve to support the Kremlin, and Ukraine is ready to liberate all its Russian-occupied territories, Ukrainian Foreign Ministry spokesman Oleg Nikolenko said on Tuesday.
“Commenting on Russia’s aggression against Ukraine, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said it doesn’t matter who attacked whom. He is convinced that Ukraine cannot win the war. The Kremlin should be happy: The Hungarian prime minister has absolved Russia of responsibility for the aggression against Ukraine,” the spokesman wrote in a Ukrainian-language Facebook entry.
He recalled that some European politicians argued last year that Ukraine had no chance of holding out for more than 72 hours.
“They were wrong then and they are wrong now. Contrary to the advocates of surrender without resistance, the Ukrainians will continue to fight until their territories are fully liberated from Russian occupation. This is the only way to restore peace and to guarantee the security not only of Ukraine, but also of the whole of Europe,” the spokesman said.
He added that it is now crucial to join efforts to ensure that Ukraine has “everything it needs” to defeat Russia as soon as possible.
As Remix News reported, In a wide-ranging interview with Bloomberg at the Qatar Economic Forum, Orbán said that Ukraine is incapable of winning the war with Russia, and instead of the West helping to escalate the conflict, it should be calling for an immediate ceasefire and peace negotiations to prevent further bloodshed.
“My position is that, looking at the reality, looking at the figures, looking at the surroundings and the fact that NATO is not ready to send troops, it is obvious that there is no victory for Ukrainians on the battlefield,” Orbán said.
