The Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs supports the introduction of the OSCE mission in Transcarpathia. Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Siyarto said this during a meeting in Budapest with the chairman of the Society of Hungarian Culture of Transcarpathia, Laszlo Brenzowicz, according to the official website of the Hungarian government.

"We are increasingly concerned about a series of attacks on the Hungarian minority, and we expect that the Ukrainian authorities will guarantee the security of the Hungarians from Transcarpathia, and we welcome the expansion of the presence of OSCE observers in Transcarpathia," the Foreign Minister said.

Let us emphasize that Siyarto said about the OSCE observer mission in Transcarpathia as a fait accompli, noting that such a step is welcomed in Budapest.

We recall, the case of the arson of the building of the Society of Hungarian culture in Uzhgorod was considered as a terrorist act.
