Ukrainian military expert Oleh Zhdanov said in a podcast that ” according to the logic of Viktor Orbán, who is being dragged by the Kremlin, the EU is financing the war in Ukraine.” He believes Orbán has been reprimanded by the Kremlin, perhaps personally by Putin.
“According to the logic of Viktor Orbán, who is being dragged by the Kremlin, the EU is financing the war in Ukraine”, Index quotes Oleh Zhdanov’s comments during a podcast of the Ukrainian military expert.
Oleh Zhdanov was presumably reacting to an earlier comment by PM Orbán. Speaking on Kossuth Radio in mid-April, the PM said that Ukraine does not exist financially (read our article about it HERE). He added that the running of the country at war is financed by European citizens, including Hungarians.
“Viktor Orbán did not back down from voting for the 11th package of sanctions against Russia, and got a reprimand from the Kremlin, perhaps personally by Vladimir Putin,” the portal quotes Zhdanov as saying.
“The Hungarian Prime Minister’s logic is: the EU is helping Ukraine in the war, therefore the EU is financing the war. But sanctions against Russia, which is attacking Ukraine, are wrong because they are damaging the Hungarian economy,” Zhdanov added.
Where does Zelensky get his money to buy his second palace in Italy? Is it financed by money from the EU taxpayers? Zelensky is great at begging, it is his theater training. He and Mr. Putin are the ones to stop the melee. Zelensky should start to figure out how to end the loss of life and property in the Ukraine instead of escalating the war. History will show that the war in Ukraine could have been avoided and Zelensky also bears responsibility for the mess.
