"It turned out that the person who made the recording and published it with an obviously unfriendly purpose - who, by the way, is a family member of a politician who lost the election - deliberately did not record how the national anthem of Ukraine sounded at the end of the session, and only after that the deputies sang the national prayer of the Hungarians, which is several hundred years old and which later became the national anthem of Hungary," the Hungarian Embassy informs.

The embassy claims that this prayer is an integral part of the cultural heritage of Hungarians living across the globe. Also in the message diplomats remind that Art. 6 of the Law of Ukraine "On National Minorities in Ukraine" guarantees the use of national symbols for these minorities.

As we reported earlier, In late November, Ivan Chubirko, MP of Zakarpattya branch of Opposition Platform - For Life claimed that the SBU, the state security service ran a check at the place of Vasyl Brenzovych, the leader of Hungarian society in that region.

On December 1, it became known that the SBU operatives checked information about possible signs of illegal activity among the MPs of local rural council. Some of these people performed Hungarian national anthem while making their oath.
