News 8 December, 2017

Peter Siyyarto, which is the Minister of foreign Affairs of Hungary, asked the OSCE on the establishment of special monitoring missions, which should on to visit the Transcarpathian region of Ukraine.


Peter Siarto noted that the Ukrainian government has disappointed the government of Hungary, with the adoption of the law on education, which provides training on the territory of Ukraine only with the use of the state language – Ukrainian. According to Szijjártó, adopted from September, the education act is an obvious contradiction of Ukraine’s commitments to the OSCE and multilateral commitments to other countries. In this regard, péter Szijjártó urged the representatives of OSCE to organize a special monitoring mission that would inspect the Transcarpathian region.

The representative of Hungary noted that the greatest concern to him is the Transcarpathian region, where currently live more than 150 thousand representatives of the Hungarian state, and where repeatedly held demonstrations against the Hungarian people using antisemitskih slogans.
