The Hungarian authorities prepared a new video calling for “speedy peace in Ukraine”, which depicts the territory of Crimea as part of Ukraine, writes European Pravda.
But the Hungarian government still has the old version of the video, in which Crimea is marked as Russian, on the Hungarian government channel.
In this video calling for an early cease-fire in Ukraine, published back on May 30, when talking about the possibility of the war in Ukraine turning into a global conflict, a map of Ukraine appears on the screen, not covering the territory of Crimea annexed by Russia.
On the same day, Mykhailo Podolyak, advisor to the head of the Ukrainian presidential office, advised the Hungarian leader Viktor Orban, if he really wanted peace, to call Vladimir Putin and urge him to withdraw Russian troops from all of Ukraine.
On Saturday, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry responded by urging Hungary to stop provocations and to comply with its international obligations as a member of the United Nations, the EU, and NATO.
Earlier, Hungary refused to participate in the supply of weapons to the Ukrainian Armed Forces, explaining it by security reasons, and Orban himself last September called for the lifting of sanctions against Russia.
