Hungary refuses to recall its Consul from Ukraine

Hungary will not recall its Consul General or Consul in Berehove (Beregszász) in connection with passport dispute, despite recommendations of Ukraine.

Hungarian Foreign Ministry's Deputy State Secretary for Communication Tamás Menczer stated this, according to the website of the Hungarian Government.  

“Hungary will not be recalling its Consul General or Consul from Berehove in view of these affairs, no matter how much the Ukrainians recommend this,” he stressed.

On September 19, Ukrinform published a video in which Ukrainian citizens are receiving Hungarian passports in Hungary's consulate in Berehove and taking their oaths of Hungarian citizenship.

Foreign Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin said that the Hungarian Consul, who handed over Hungarian passports to Ukrainians, will not remain in Ukraine. In response, Budapest threatened to take further steps to slow down Ukraine's integration into the EU.
