Hungarian President Katalin Novák voiced her position on russia's war against Ukraine during her inauguration ceremony on Saturday.

This was reported by European Pravda with the reference to the media.

She named 10 points outlining the position on the russian invasion and attitude towards Ukraine.

In particular, Hungary condemns Putin's aggression and armed attack on a sovereign state.

“We will always say “no” to all efforts to restore the Soviet Union. We, Hungarians, want peace here and in neighboring countries, we want peace, not war. We demand the investigation and punishment of war crimes”, the statement said.

She added that Hungary is not neutral, but on the side of innocent victims and on the side of the truth. “We are fulfilling our commitments within the EU and NATO, but if Hungarian interests want it, we will say no”, Novák said.

Among other points:

  • Under no circumstances do we want to give up our sovereignty, for which we have repeatedly fought, and we are constantly developing our defense forces,
  • we support Ukraine's accession to the EU,
  • we are ready to sacrifice for the sake of peace and we will not interfere with the help of our allies, but we will not agree to decisions that require more sacrifices from the Hungarians than the damage they do to the russian aggressor,
  • we are glad to be a mediator between the parties of the war,
  • we insist on ensuring the rights of Hungarians living in Ukraine, both before and now.

As stated earlier, the Hungarian parliament on Thursday, March 10, elected Katalin Novák, a deputy from the ruling Fidesz party, as president. She became the first woman in this position and at the same time the youngest president of Hungary.
