Information about threats received in an email emerged on the eve of the planned visit of Peter Szijjarto to Ukraine. This information surfaced against the backdrop of the upcoming meeting between the head of the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and his Ukrainian counterpart, Dmytro Kuleba, according to Index.

Information surfaced on the eve of Peter Szijjarto's scheduled visit to Ukraine that the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs allegedly received an email in Ukrainian containing threats of an explosion if he dares to come to our country.

The letter, among other things, claims that its authors allegedly hate the government of Hungary, which, according to them, is doing everything to make Ukrainians lose the war.

"... An explosive reception awaits on January 29. The armored train won't save you. We recommend that you place an order with a funeral home to start making a coffin for Szijjarto to fit his height. God forgives, but Ukrainians don't," the letter allegedly received by the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs states.

Meanwhile, the Hungarian government stated that it remains committed to "close cooperation with Ukraine" despite the "threats."

The Hungarian Foreign Minister has been promised additional security measures to ensure the meeting with his Ukrainian counterpart is not jeopardized amid efforts to strengthen bilateral cooperation between the two countries.

Szijjarto and Kuleba meeting

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba will meet with his Hungarian counterpart, Peter Szijjarto, in Uzhhorod on January 29. The possibility of the meeting was first announced by the Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs.

Szijjarto also mentioned having a phone conversation with the head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Andriy Yermak, during which, according to the Hungarian Prime Minister, he stated that a meeting between Zelenskyy and Orban would make sense "if it can yield results."

It's worth noting that Zelenskyy has already met with Orban on the sidelines of the inauguration of the President of Argentina. At that time, according to the Ukrainian president, they managed to have "a candid and clear discussion about our European matters."
