Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán believes that global powers need to create a "peace policy" amid the Russian attack on the Okhmatdyt children's hospital, according to the head of the Hungarian government.

According to him, yesterday's tragic and horrific attack on Kyiv proves that "the brutality of the Russia-Ukraine war has reached a new level." Therefore, he said, nine days ago, the Hungarian authorities "embarked on a peace mission".

"The growing intensity of the war is a call for global powers to abandon their war policy and instead create a peace policy to guide Russia and Ukraine into a ceasefire and peacetalks. This is the only way to prevent further bloodshed," added Orbán.

At the same time, the Prime Minister did not criticize the Russian army for the shelling of the children's hospital.
