Hungarian extremist politician makes outrageous statement about Ukraine on banned Russian TV
Dóra Dúró, vice-president of the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk, gave a controversial interview to the Russia Today TV channel, in which she stated that Ukraine must give up territories for peace.
Dúró’s interview with Russia Today, which is banned in the European Union, can also be viewed on the official Mi Hazánk (Our Homeland) YouTube channel. The Hungarian politician reiterated her statement to the Russian newspaper Izvestia that Ukraine’s accession to NATO without the risk of a full-scale conflict can only be achieved if Russia approves the move.
Now she has made even more head-scratching statements. According to Dúró, “Ukraine must give up its territory for the sake of peace, and Europe must not subordinate its own interests to those of the United States.”
Dóra Dúró’s words have sparked outrage in Ukraine. For instance, Oleh Nikolenko, the spokesman for the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, reacted by exclaiming that Ukraine has the sovereign right to freely choose its security options.
Olena Kondratyuk, Speaker of the Ukrainian Parliament, stressed that Ukraine does not need Russia’s permission to join NATO. “And I would like to remind Dóra Dúró, who made this statement, that Europe is a place where borders and sovereignty are respected,” index.hu quotes her as saying.
Dóra Dúró’s name also appeared on the website of Ukraine’s enemies. The database, called Mirotvorec, is also referred to as a death list.
DD is only a couple of years younger than I am, but I have to say that her age seems to showing, and for someone with a PhD (political science or not), her public comments do not reflect that of a person with a PhD.
I would be massively disappointed if there were more young women here in Hungary thinking like she seems to be (publicly).
Her comments are the type of comments I would expect to hear from a seasoned “plázacica”. 😀
Instagram diplomacy by Mi Hazánk – real world consequences are not important
Ukraine has a “death list” ??? Who is the extremist???
The level of politicians is dropping at incredibly fast pace. I don’t understand why there are selection processes for public offcials working for these people, especially in the army and police forces it is commobly believed you need to be well tested to carry a gun. Politicans are holding cannons of responsibility and are not tested through logic tests, technical skills or langauge skills. You can see in the video a result of this lack of filters.
