The authorities of the Zakarpattya region intend to create a separate area with the center in Berehove, where Hungarians make the most part of the local population. This is mentioned in the joint statement of the regional NGOs, released on the Zakarpattya online website.

"Another district, the Berehove district with the center in Berehove, appeared in the perspective plan of zoning Zakarpattya region. Another unbelievable coincidence is that the territory of that area matches the borders of the residence area of ethnic Hungarian. Therefore, the demand to create, in fact, an ethnic Hungarian area, which has been promoted by Hungarians in Zakarpattya (...) becomes reality", the activists said.

They pointed out that on June 1, 2020, the Cabinet of Ministers issued the draft decree indicating there would be five districts (Berehivsky, Mukachivsky, Tyachivsky, Uzhgorodsky, and Khustsky) - instead of four, as it was agreed on previously.
