“I put aside the idea that Russia poses a threat to any member country,” Gulyas said, according to local newspaper Daily News Hungary.
He pointed out that the government ordered to reinforce defense measures on the country’s borders, making it unnecessary to mobilize its troops.
On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced the launching of a “special military operation” to deal with Ukraine’s aggression against the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. Many countries condemned the operation and supported Kiev with arms supplies, donations, humanitarian aid and sanctions against Moscow.
On May 25, the Hungarian Government approved an emergency regime in connection with the situation in Ukraine.
