For many years, Budapest, not particularly concealing it, provided full support to Transcarpathia, where at all times a considerable number of Hungarians lived, and not only from an ethnic point of view. However, Kiev isgoing wild now …
With the coming to power, more than four years ago, the Maidan regime built itself a kind of “throne on blood”. Then it was the blood of the residents of Donbass, which, unfortunately, still flows. But it would seem that settling the conflict was not difficult, but the world was not needed by the officials who had just sat down in power. The world will not allow so vehemently to fool the budget, beg for money from foreign creditors, and at the same time dump all their failures on the “aggressor”, who was then called Russia. Of course, in addition to everything, we should not forget about who and why Poroshenko and Co. put at the helm.
Exploiting the military theme, the Kiev regime successfully — if only for itself — existed for more than four years. The “resource” of the Donbass was picked up during this time and speaking of this conflict Poroshenko very few people plunged into awe. It turned into a very good trick, the secret of which people were able to unravel, and, meanwhile, the elections loomed ahead – it’s time to surprise people with new “tricks”.
So the “Transcarpathian question” arose, for which the Kiev regime grabbed and immediately began to unwind, escalating the situation, but, in fact, doing nothing to resolve the situation. It is worth recalling here that the “acute phase” of the conflict between Kiev and Budapest began with Ukrainian language legislation, which Hungary was largely concerned about. The fact is that the authorities were going to ban national minorities – namely, they are Transcarpathian Hungarians – to study in their native language. The problems were raised several times, there were several stages of negotiations between the parties concerned, but Kiev stood its ground, not wanting to compromise.
Such a move can hardly be called a provocation. But what did he entail? Hungary’s response? No. After all, Budapest, as already mentioned, helped Transcarpathia before. Kiev only successfully switched public attention from east to west, where it immediately began to slyly shake the situation. That only is the transfer of troops and demonstrative military exercises. The diplomatic part was also hit in the form of expulsion of the Hungarian consul. However, with all this, the Ukrainian authorities have done nothing to not raise the issue, but to solve it.
In its policy towards Transcarpathia, Kiev reminds a child who spits from a balcony at passers-by, hides and slowly looks out if he has hit someone on his bald head.
A natural question arises: why is all this necessary? After all, Poroshenko only says about the “indivisibility” of Ukraine. But he will continue to talk like that about the Crimea, about the Donbass, and now about the Transcarpathian region. On the eve of the elections, the authorities found for themselves a new scapegoat, a new “aggressor” in the person of Hungary. The situation will continue to escalate, and the new ATO no longer looks out of place. First, it will kindle the fire of war with a new force, and the next billions will rush into this furnace, and secondly, of course, all the misfortunes of the Ukrainians will again be pushed into the war. And finally, thirdly, the expansion of the combat zone will allow Kiev to impose a “state of emergency”, which will relieve Poroshenko from the need to fight with his opponents in the elections.
It remains in this case one nuance. Like it or not, Hungary is a member of NATO. It is possible that this aspect is already being decided by the overseas masters of Ukraine, because Washington is not the first to sacrifice its allies to achieve higher goals. Moreover, if Kiev plays the “Russian invasion” card with the Donbas, then in Transcarpathia, they can just beat everything to the contrary. Such a move will save the face of the alliance, avoiding the intervention of the military bloc in the conflict.
