Hungarian consulates in Ukraine have ceased to grant citizenship for Ukrainian citizens. Pavlo Klimkin, the foreign minister of Ukraine said that as quoted by Yevropeiska Pravda outlet

'The Hungarians say they do not issue passports now. And they will not be. That's good because I remember Szijarto's claims when he said issuing passports on our territory does not contradict the Ukrainian laws. Now, it is over', he said. 

However, the simplified procedure of granting Ukrainians Hungarian citizenship is still preserved in the legal framework.  

'Regrettably, I can't guarantee they would not try and carry on issuing the passports to Hungarians from Zakarpattya region in Hungary. We can't control their actions on the Hungarian territory. But it is absolutely principal for us that they can't do it in consulates on our territory', he said.  

Klimkin also said that Kyiv offered Budapest to sign the agreement on avoiding the dual citizenship; so far, there has been no response from the Hungarian side.

Earlier, Ukrinform agency published a video where a few Ukrainians receive the Hungarian passports and owe allegiance to Hungary in the Consulate in Berehove, Zakarpattia region, western Ukraine. The Hungarian diplomat recommended not to inform the Ukrainian authorities about receiving the new documents.
