Hungary not against transit of weapons to Ukraine through its territory – foreign ministry

Hungary will not supply its weapons to Ukraine, but third countries can use its territory for the transit of weapons to Ukraine.

Hungarian Deputy Foreign Minister Levente Magyar said this at a meeting with Lviv Mayor Andriy Sadovyi, Ukrinform reports, citing the press service of the Lviv City Council.

"We are shocked by the events that are happening here, we really sympathize with you. Over the past 200 years, we have been at war with Russia three times. These wars were not for life, but for death. Unlike many Western partners, we felt for ourselves what such resistance to this huge eastern state is like. At the same time, Hungary itself will not supply its weapons - this is our strategic position. However, third countries can use our territory," Magyar said.

Earlier reports said that Hungary objects to the supply of Western weapons to Ukraine through its territory, so as not to expose Hungarians living in Ukraine's Zakarpattia region to the threat of Russian shelling.
