Hungary will block any decision of the Ukraine-Georgia-NATO summit

Budapest has dramatically changed its position, having come from previously reached agreements on the language issue
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban will block any decision on the outcome of the meeting with Ukraine and Georgia at the NATO summit in Brussels on July 11-12, European Pravda, referring to the letter of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to the NATO General Secretary.
The Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs reportedly sent a letter to the Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, which says that Orban intends to vote against any document that will invite the members of the Alliance to adopt after the meeting with the Ukrainian and Georgian leaders.
According to the report, this letter was sent three days after the Ukrainian-Hungarian meeting at the ministerial level, which was held in Berehove.
After the meeting it became known that Hungary refused to veto Ukraine’s participation in the NATO summit. In addition, in Budapest they then refused an ultimatum demand for a return to the previous language system in education, agreed with the conclusions of the Venice Commission. According to these conclusions, Article 7 of the Ukrainian Law “On Education” can be implemented in a way that does not harm national minorities – in consultation with representatives of these minorities.
Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Siyarto then publicly suggested that before the summit is over, progress will be even more expressive and Hungary will stop blocking the Alliance’s decision on the status of Ukraine.
However, a few days later the Hungarian Foreign Ministry said in a letter that the meeting with Ukraine did not bring success. However, in Budapest, they refrained from commenting on the reasons for such a sharp change in their position.
As you know, Hungary has already blocked the meeting of the Ukraine-NATO commission at the ministerial level three times. The Hungarian authorities explain that in this way they are pressing on Kiev, demanding a revision of the language norm of the law on education. Budapest is convinced that the law significantly restricted the rights of national minorities in using their native language.
The Hungarians explain their opinion by the fact that the country in which nationalism and right-wing radical ideas flourish is not a place in European society. Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Siyarto summarized that Budapest would be against this until Kiev took a number of measures to address this issue.
