Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk yesterday criticised Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s call for autonomy for ethnic Hungarians abroad, calling it “most unfortunate.”
Orbán also said in his inauguration speech in Parliament on Saturday that ethnic Hungarians in Ukraine are entitled to dual citizenship, community rights and autonomy.
The occasion was not the right place or time for such statements, Tusk remarked. He added that Ukraine’s neighbours must show solidarity and must have an interest in sustaining its unity and independence.
He said he will meet Orbán on Thursday in Bratislava at a conference on global security, where he will openly tell him what he thinks, “even if it ruins the atmosphere”.
