Hungarian Foreign Minister Péter Szijjártó expects the decisions on the language and education laws from President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, as Radio Liberty reported.

“I want to say frankly; we treat a new president of Ukraine as a new hope. I want to be honest with you; we felt that ex-president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko holds anti-Hungarian policy. I do not know, whether it was done on purpose or due to the other reasons…But there is no doubt, the clear policy against Hungary became the final one of all his decisions. And I am talking not only about the education law but also about the language law, which was adopted by the Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine's Parliament, - 112 International). And about the constant pursuit of the Hungarians in Zakarpattia by the special services,” Szijjártó said.

According to the Hungarian Foreign Minister, his country ties new hopes with Zelensky “as he did fairly encouraging statements on this issue”.

“And we really hope that the actions will follow his words,” he noted.

After Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko signed the language law, Hungary’s MFA informed that they hope President Volodymyr Zelensky will resolve the “problematic issues”

As it was reported earlier, on April 25, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the draft law #5670-d on the provision of the functioning of the Ukrainian language as the state one in the second reading and in general.

The status of Ukraine's state language will be endorsed over the course of the next ten years when the government implements the respective program.
