Guest workers for peace
According to Kárpáthír, the demonstrators had Hungarian and English posters on which they wrote: “Stop Putin!” and “Glory to the heroes!” One of the speakers, a woman, asked everybody to say a prayer for the defenders and the population of Kyiv.
A man said that they found a motherland and job in Hungary. He asked the Hungarians to help the Ukrainians as they did up to then and not let his country down.
A young woman directed her words to the Russian mothers. She asked them to stop their sons from killing Ukrainians. She said that every mother worries for their children and relatives. Therefore, she asked all mothers to end “this mad war”. Another woman said that her father lived in a war-torn region of Ukraine. But when they managed to speak he said he was not afraid. She added that the women who remained at home were not afraid, and if needed, they would arm themselves.
This is why the defence minister visited the Hungarian-Ukrainian border
Meanwhile, MTI reported that
all five of the crossings along Hungary’s border with Ukraine are now operating around the clock.
Hungary’s Defence Minister Tibor Benkő and Commander of the Hungarian Defence Forces Romulusz Ruszin-Szendi visited the Barabás border station, in the east of Hungary, on Sunday, the army said on Facebook. The men met with troops and police at the crossing on Hungary’s border with Ukraine. They also spoke with war refugees.
