Billboards with the images of three leaders of the Zakarpattia Society of Hungarian Culture and the words "Stop the separatists" appeared in several districts of Zakarpattia region. Law enforcement officers are already looking for perpetrators, said the chairman of the Zakarpattia Regional State Administration Gennady Moskal, according to his website.
“Right-wing conductors of the provocation are now being sought by law enforcement officers, but the methods and style of execution indicate that this is another primitive special operation of the Russian FSB, which has been trying to embroil Ukrainians and Hungarians in Zakarpattia for several years,” Moskal said.
“Last April, at the administrative border of the Vinogradiv and Beregovo districts, boards like this were installed at night with provocative inscriptions in Hungarian. In February of this year, the office of Zakarpattia Society of Hungarian Culture was set on fire twice in Uzhgorod”, Moskal said.
Mukachevo.net, citing sources in the Zakarpattia Regional Council, reports that the Society is initiating the convening of an extraordinary session in order to make an appeal to the central authorities of Ukraine with a call to stop the attack on the Hungarian national minority.
As reported, in Uzhgorod, the organizer of the arson in the building of the Society of Hungarian Culture was taken into custody
