Hungarian ATV wrote that many aid shipments become looted. Furthermore, police found suspicious goods at a filling station near Técső, Transcarpathia, only a couple of kilometres away from the Hungarian border. They said the products were being sold for money even though they arrived as donation.
According to ATV, Ukrainian police shared a video of goods being sold at a Técső fuel station even though they arrived as donation to the war-stricken country. One of the biggest Hungarian aid groups’ officials said they did everything to get goods to those in need. “We support institutions with the aid offered by Hungarian people, and our co-workers in Transcarpathia give them to those in need,” he said.
Lujza Balázs is from Tiszaújlak, Transcarpathia. She said they had not seen any aid packages yet.
She added that there were many internally displaced Ukrainians in their settlement, suggesting that they probably received the donations instead of the local Hungarians.
