Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko plans to attend the summer NATO summit despite Hungary’s warnings that it would block participation of the Ukrainian side, the head of Ukraine’s Mission to NATO Vadym Prystaiko has announced.
“The president is anyway going to Brussels, as there are other meetings he was invited to apart from the Ukraine-NATO Commission,” Ukranews quotes him as saying.
Meanwhile, the diplomat continued, the meeting of the Ukraine-NATO Commission at the level of foreign ministers is under threat of derailment because of the Hungarian position. According to Prystaiko, tough statements of Hungarian diplomats are stipulated by the coming parliamentary elections in the country.
As EADaily reported earlier, on March 20, Budapest addressed a new ultimatum to Kiev. Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjártó said that Ukraine must revise its education law and postpone its implementation till 2023. Otherwise, Hungary promised to block meetings of the Ukrainian leadership with heads of the European Union and NATO.
