The journalist of the newspaper Magyar, Gabor Stir, in a conversation with the TV channel News Front, said that the situation with the rights of national minorities in Ukraine is especially true for the Hungarians. It is possible to force Bulgarians and Romanians living in Ukraine to act against their national interest, they can be divided in this way with their compatriots in Europe, but this will not happen to Hungary.
The journalist of the newspaper Magyar, Gabor Stir told News Front about the issues ethnic Hungarians face in their daily lives in the Ukraine.
“It is possible to force Bulgarians and Romanians living in Ukraine to act against their national interest so they can be divided with their European compatriots, but this will not happen to Hungary.” adds Stir.
Gaborreminds that there are 15 million Hungarians in the world and only 10 million of them live in the territory of Hungary. Victor Orban took a firm position to protect the sovereignty of the country and protect all Hungarians, including those who live far from their historical homeland.
In addition, Gabor emphasizes the fact that Hungary has a fully developed education system, even for minorities, including higher education in Hungarian. As such, the Ukrainian law on language is an obstacle.
The Hungarian journalist is convinced that it is necessary to take a strong stance with Kiev, and therefore his country boycotts the Ukraine-NATO council, although he stresses that Hungary can not interfere with the European integration of Ukrainians, moreover, according to him, this will not happen soon.
But if Kiev does not understand, Gabor says, America and Europe are already well aware of what a boycott of Hungary is. “They feel that it hurts,” he said. Of course, Ukraine is trying to use the differences between Hungary and the European Union, but Brussels and Washington understand that the Hungarian position hinders their political interests.
By the way, so far no one has used such a tool in relation to Kiev, the Hungarian journalist stresses. “But if you try to crush, you will succeed,” says Gabor Stier.
