Budapest Mayor Gergely Karácsony has delivered aid, including a mobile lifting crane for street lighting maintenance, and eight washer-driers to the mayor of Berehove, a sister city for Budapest, during his visit to Transcarpathia.
Karacsony said that during the visit, he also held talks with leaders of the Berehove region and ethnic Hungarian interest-protection and professional organisations.
He added that he visited the institutions in Berehove and the region in order to gain first-hand experience of the situation and to deliver aid from Budapest.
He said he had established contact with Zoltán Babják, his counterpart in Berehove, on the first day of the war in Ukraine, and humanitarian aid tailored to demand has been continually offered to the city from Budapest ever since.
Babják and Karácsony:
Given that Berehove and its region are rich in thermal water resources, Budapest has offered its experiences in the use of geothermic energy in preparation for the post-war period, Karácsony said.
