Hungary to Block EU Sending Another $19 Billion to Ukraine

The prime minister of Hungary, Viktor Orbán, has warned the European Union he will block them from sending another $19 billion to Ukraine.

Orbán critised the European Union’s latest aid package, declaring he would block the discharging of funds.

Relations between Brussels and Budapest are continuing to sour, with the European Commission recommending that billions of euros in EU funding for Hungary should remain frozen amid concerns over the law under Orbán’s national-conservative government.

The Associated Press reported that Orbán took issue with EU members having to borrow money in order to send such a large amount to Ukraine.

Although Orbán acknowledged that Ukraine needs financial help due to its ongoing war with Russia, he said any aid should be agreed upon bilaterally between Ukraine and individual EU governments.

“The question is how to help Ukraine,” Orbán said.

“One proposal says that we should use the budgets of the EU member-states to take out new loans together and use that money to give to Ukraine,” he added.

“We are not in favour of this because we do not want the European Union to become a community of indebted states instead of a community of co-operating member states,” Orbán ontinued.

“We will not accept [this] plan, we will not consent to it, without us it will not come into being,” Orbán added.

Orbán has committed to providing Ukraine with $180 million but said his country would not support an EU-wide package.

The European Commission has since recommended that €7.5 billion of EU funds meant for Hungary should now be frozen

As Breitbart noted:

This follows the Hungarian general election earlier this year, during which many groups and organizations in the West desperately tried to push for a coalition of opposing parties, including both the far left and far right, to defeat the Fidesz government.

Ultimately these efforts ended up failing abysmally, with Orbán winning an even stronger mandate from voters.
