Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said Ukraine’s membership in the European Union is “a bad decision which Hungary wants no part in”.

Recently, the European Union decided to start accession negotiations with Ukraine and Moldova, but Hungary, which has continued to oppose Kyiv’s accession, rejected this decision because Prime Minister Orbán did not participate in the discussions on accession negotiations and threatened to veto the decision with other member states.

Through a video recording, Orbán said that Budapest’s stance was that Ukraine was not ready to start accession talks with the EU.

Hungarian PM emphasised that his country stayed away from the decision-making. Orbán’s position remained the same even ahead of the EU summit in Brussels, while he stressed that his country’s position was crystal clear.

He added that the enlargement of the bloc carried conditions that had not been fulfilled in Kyiv’s case.

Besides, through a statement published on December 15, ahead of the summit set to discuss the membership of Ukraine to the European Union, Fidesz MEP, through a joint video, said that “a forged accession” could lead to the “collapse” of Europe.

According to Deutsch, if Ukraine became part of the EU, at least nine members of the bloc, including Hungary, would no longer be eligible for funding and would become a net contributor to the common budget.

On December 14, the European Union agreed to open negotiation talks with Ukraine and Moldova. The Commission recommended opening EU membership negotiations with Ukraine and Moldova in November this year, stressing that they have met all the needed conditions for this process to be completed.

However, Hungary has continuously opposed the process. In November this year, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade of Hungary, Péter Szijjártó, said that Ukraine’s accession to the EU would bring war to the bloc.
