Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orbán is not eager to have a common border with the Russian Federation again because, according to him, once it was like that and "these memories are not good", reports his words Polska Agencja Prasowa.

Referring to the war in Ukraine, Orbán noted that although the Visegrad Four countries "have different approaches to the war", they also share common positions.

"We agree that Ukraine needs to be helped and it is necessary to help, and this is the right approach," he added.

Border with Russia

Orbán also voiced a special aspect from the point of view of his country.

"Hungary does not want to have a common border with Russia again. We once had such a common border, and these memories are not good," he emphasized.

The Prime Minister added that he wants there to be an entity between Hungary and Russia that will stand and that is why his country is helping Ukraine.

Also, the head of the government once again voiced his position, which concerns the delivery of humanitarian aid only, and he does not plan to send weapons or troops to Ukraine.

Hungary's position on war

It is worth noting that the Prime Minister of Hungary, Viktor Orbán, takes an openly anti-Ukrainian position. He often makes statements to discredit Ukraine.

Since the beginning of the full-scale war, Hungary has not provided military aid to Ukraine, and it also blocks European Union sanctions against Russia. In addition, Budapest continues to conduct trade with the Russian Federation, and representatives of the Hungarian authorities visit Moscow.

In November, Orbán said that allegedly Ukraine would not be able to defeat Russia on the battlefield.

"It's obvious that the Ukrainians will not win on the frontline. There is no solution on the battleground. Russians will not lose. There will be no political change in Moscow. This is the reality," he said.
