The radical Mi Hazánk (Our Homeland) party is submitting a proposal to parliament, calling on the government to withdraw its decision to financially support the operation of the Ukrainian state.
“Those 75 billion forints [EUR 181.4m] would be in much better place at the Hungarian families and companies unable to pay their utility bills,” deputy party leader Dóra Dúró told a press conference on Wednesday.
The aid will “directly finance” the war, and Mi Hazánk rejects “all financial support of Ukraine’s military goals,” she said. She slammed the Ukrainian government as “extremely corrupt”; “there is no guarantee that that money won’t line the pockets of anti-Hungarian Ukrainian politicians,” she said.
