Klimkin also wondered whether it meant that Budapest supports separatism.

As it was reported earlier, the Hungarian-Ukrainian relations worsened due to the adopted in Ukraine education law, which makes Ukrainian the language of the educational process in schools. Previously schoolchildren could be taught in the languages of national minorities.
