The Minister of Foreign Economy and Foreign Affairs of Hungary Péter Szijjártó, chairing the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, promised that he would help Donbas as much as possible. This was discussed during his visit to the contact line in the Joint Forces Operation zone, as Ukrinform reports.
“It is very sad that in Europe in the 21st century there are still such places where military conflicts take place. It is clear that this checkpoint in Stanytsia Luhanska is one of the saddest places in Europe. We are now chairing the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe , we will do everything to help as much as possible. We are trying with our means to ensure that the agreements that were adopted in Minsk are fulfilled," Szijjártó said.
He reminded about the allocation of 140 thousand euros by Hungary for the Council of Europe program to support Ukraine, as well as financing the reconstruction of the medical center in Stanytsia Luhanska.
The head of Hungarian diplomacy expressed hope that the sad situation that prevents many people from living in eastern Ukraine will disappear as soon as possible.
As it was reported earlier, Hungarian Foreign Minister is in Ukraine on a working visit at the invitation of Ukraine's Minister of Foreign Affairs Dmytro Kuleba.
