"Our relationship is developing like a roller coaster ride - up and down. We are ready for dialogue. Last summer we managed to get the status of NATO partner with expanded capabilities. Hungary did not veto this decision. Hungary will not completely block Ukraine's relations with NATO," Kuleba said.

Relations between Ukraine and Hungary have repeatedly aggravated due to disagreements over the vision of how the rights of the Hungarians in Transcarpathia should be respected.

Since September 2017, Hungary has vetoed all NATO decisions concerning deepening cooperation with Ukraine.

In particular, Budapest requires the Ukrainian authorities to solve problems with the issue of education and the law on the use of the state language.

As we reported earlier, Foreign Minister of Hungary Peter Szijarto asked OSCE Head Gent Cakaj to send a mission to Ukraine's westernmost region of Zakarpattya so as to look into the violations of rights of Hungarian community.
