New Ukrainian Consulate General may be established in Wroclaw, Poland by 2020, says Ukrainian Ambassador to Poland Andrii Deshchytsia, as Ukrinform reported.  

‘The number of appeals to the consular offices to address various issues has significantly increased. Ukrainian citizens often appeal to the honorary consulates, which are not mandated for fulfilling all consular operations. Within this context it becomes obvious to open another Ukrainian consulate in Wroclaw, western Poland. It would allow redistributing the limits of consular districts so that Ukrainians reach the consulate without spending two or three hours. We plan to implement preparatory arrangements in 2019 and we hope that new Consulate General of Ukraine in Wroclaw will start working yet in 2020,’ he said.

In addition, it is planned to open honorary consulate in Katowice city. Candidates are being sorted out for the position of the honorary consul in Kielce city. 

‘If we manage to realize all these plans in the very near future, then we’ll have only two voivodeship with no Ukrainian consulates, they are Bialystok and Olsztyn,’ Deshchytsia noted. 

As we reported earlier, Ukraine’s Honorary Consulate was opened in Hungarian Siófok on November 7. 

Foreign Minister of Hungary Péter Szijjártó claimed that Budapest has never had any plans to conquer particular areas of Zakarpattia region or to ensure its autonomous state, as Gazeta Prawna reported.

According to the minister, Hungary does not suffer from the 'Trianon syndrome' or has any angst for the lands, which belonged to the Austro-Hungarian Empire once. 

'I always reject the accusations of revisionism. It is silly and false insinuations. I repeat one more time, we are not the revisionists', the minister said, answering the question of a journalist whether Budapest will decide to change the borders for the protection of the Hungarian minority amid the crisis in relations with Ukraine.
