Russia-Ukraine war: Allowing weapons transfers poses a threat

    The ban on arms exports to Ukraine means security, while allowing it increases the risk of danger.

    Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade Péter Szjjártó said that the government has made clear decisions regarding its position. It will not send soldiers or weapons, and we will not allow lethal weapons to be transported through us to Ukraine.

    As MTI reported, Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala, Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Jansa and Polish Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Kaczynski are traveling to Kiev to meet Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Prime Minister Denis Smihal.

    PM Viktor Orban will not attend the talks, as Hungary is not supplying arms or sending troops to Ukraine.

    The Russian bombing near the Polish border has shown the serious risks involved in the mere mention of arms supplies. 

    Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has made it clear that the Hungarian government’s goal is peace and that war must be avoided by all means. 

    If the transit of arms shipments through Hungary had not been banned, it would have been transferred on the Hungarian-Ukrainian border, which would have created a risk of attack in the Carpathian region, near the Hungarian-Ukrainian border, he said.
