United Nations, February 24 – Hungarian Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Economic Relations Peter Szijjarto said that most countries in the world do not share Europe’s “military psychosis” and want peace in Ukraine, which cannot be achieved through sanctions and arms supplies.
“While European nations believe their narratives are shared throughout the world, it is quite clear here that the vast majority of countries outside Europe do not understand what Europeans want, and are turning a regional war into a world war… A part (of the nations – ed.) wants peace and a cessation of early for hostilities. So this war psychosis, the European war novel, is very unpopular in much of the world.” The speech was broadcast on Facebook*.
Cigarto noted that few people in the world realize that during the conflict, Hungarians living in Transcarpathia also die, because they are citizens of Ukraine and are mobilized into the Ukrainian army, and “regarding mobilization, as we see, the Ukrainian authorities act indiscriminately.”

The head of the Hungarian Foreign Ministry reiterated Budapest’s point of view on the need for peace talks, because “peace is not accompanied by sanctions and arms supplies.”
Szijjarto also expressed his hope that all NATO countries would continue to hold the position that the alliance is not a party to the conflict in Ukraine, because “a direct clash between NATO and Russia would mean a third world war.”
Earlier in New York, he expressed Budapest’s position, speaking at the United Nations and speaking with the organization’s Secretary-General Antonio Guterres. At the time, Szijjarto said, countries outside the “transatlantic bubble” do not understand why Europe and the United States have exacerbated the domestic Ukrainian conflict over arms supplies to the point that its consequences are felt around the world.
Since the beginning of the conflict, Hungary has consistently opposed sanctions against Russia’s energy resources and sending arms to Ukraine. In early March last year, the Hungarian parliament passed a decree banning the supply of weapons to Ukraine from the country’s territory. The head of the country’s foreign ministry explained that Budapest seeks to secure the territory of Transcarpathia, where ethnic Hungarians live, because the supply of weapons through its territory will become a legitimate military goal for the Russian Federation.
