Hungary will change the name of the “authorized minister for Zakarpattia.This was stated by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin after a meeting with Peter Siyarto in Luxembourg, according to Facebook page.

"We talked about how to deal with the name of their representative, and fully agreed that the name will be different. You will see it in the next few days," he said.

The Minister stressed that Hungary will not do something in the territory of Zakarpattia without the knowledge of the Ukrainian government.

“Either we will work there together, coordinating our steps, or Hungarians will not work there at all,” said Klimkin.

Earlier the Foreign Ministry announced the Hungarian consul in Berehovo (Zakarpattia region) persona non grata and obliged him to leave the territory of Ukraine within 72 hours.

Earlier Hungarian Foreign Ministry summoned Lyubov Nepop, Ukrainian Ambassador in Budapest, because of the publication on Myrotvorets website (reveals personal information of people who are considered to be "enemies of Ukraine;" curated by the government intelligence Security Service - Ed.) about more than 300 Zakarpattia officials, who have both Hungarian and Ukrainian citizenship, as Hungry Today reported referring to Levente Magyar, Hungarian Foreign Ministry State Secretary.

“Hungary’s foreign ministry has summoned Ukraine’s ambassador to Budapest after “Ukraine’s anti-Hungarian policy reached a new level",” the message says.

According to Magyar, the summons was due to “the existence of a “death list” of Transcarpathian Hungarians in Ukraine, as well as a call for the collective deportation Ukrainian-Hungarian dual citizens on the Ukrainian Parliament’s website.”

“The state secretary referred to “an extremist Ukrainian website” that had published a list containing the data of 300 Hungarian state or local council officials in Transcarpathia who it claims are dual citizens,” the news agency reads.
