Ukrainian Embassy in Hungary denied the information published in Zakarpattia News concerning the refusal to help the victim of a car accident which occurred in August, as the press office of Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry reported.
In particular, the news agency published an article “Ukraine’s Embassy in Budapest refused to help a gravely wounded Transcarpathian”.
“Ukraine’s Embassy in Hungary officially reports that the information presented in the article does not correspond to reality. Right after the car accident, Ukraine’s consul made contact with the injured Ukrainians and Hungarian competent authorities. The report on the car accident was immediately published on the website of the Embassy so that the relatives of the victims have a possibility to promptly get the relevant information concerning the situation,” the press office informs.
Besides, it was noted that the consul contacted the doctors and visited the injured Ukrainians in the hospital. He was in telephone contact with the doctors and the victims.
“Right after the car accident, in coordination with Ukraine’s Health Ministry, the Embassy offered the Hungarian side medical assistance. At the same time, it was assured that the Hungarian side can provide the victims with all they need,” the message says.
It was noted that the Embassy maintains links with the Hungarian doctors, the law enforcement agencies, injured Ukrainians and their relatives.
“During another phone talk with Popovich’s father which was held on September 21, 2018, the consul offered to give lawyer’s contacts, who demanded the relatives of the injured to give a certificate with unclear content from the Embassy or to give the lawyer a phone number of the relevant officers of the Embassy to clarify the matter,” the representatives of the Embassy added.
The representatives of the Foreign Ministry called the speculations on this topic irrelevant and sent a refutation to the editors' office of Zakarpattia News.
It should be noted that Ukraine’s Embassy in Hungary confirmed the information on the injuries of 13 Ukrainians in a car accident in Hungary, which occurred on August 12.
