Foreign Minister of Hungary Peter Szijjarto thinks that "the oppression of Hungarians" by the Ukrainian state will not stop until current president heads Ukraine as the press service of Hungarian Foreign Ministry reported.

Szijjarto claimed that the election in 2019 might change the situation.

"Until Ukraine is headed by the current president, the incitement of the hatred to the Hungarians from the Ukrainian state will not stop as the president finds it a way to get a particular public support that is very low now," the message said.
