The scandalous video with the Ukrainians, who get the Hungarian passports in Berehovo, was published by the current officer of the Border Guard Service of Ukraine. Governor of Zakarpattia region claimed this as 112 Ukraine reported.

"By the way, a person who published this video is the current border guard officer who took an oath and recorded it. The Border Guard Service and the service of its internal security should deal with the aim of his action," Moskal claimed.

Moskal did not exclude that the author of the video was kind of "agent."

"However, Vienna Convention points out that the places, where the embassies and consulates located, are the territories of this state. In other words, it is a territory of Hungary," he added.

"I proceed only from the legal framework that the state knew about this for a long time and it did nothing: any ambassador was ever called, any note was sent. Even after all loud statements of (Ukraine's Foreign Minister - Ed.) Klimkin, the ambassador of Hungary was not called and he did not get any note of the protest," the official said.
