Hungarian premier highlighted once more need for Ukraine-EU visa liberalisation
Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said Europe does not do enough for the restoration of the Ukrainian economy, a statement on the Hungary's government website says.
According to the country's premier, Ukraine does not "see signs of stability, and the country has lost a significant percentage of its territory and population."
Orban has added the former economic structure has collapsed, and Ukraine's existence is dependent on external funding.
"From a European viewpoint, the situation of Ukraine is a matter of conscience, and in this department Europe is not doing well today," the Hungarian prime minister said to continue, "Europe has hardly done anything for the reconstruction of Ukraine's economy."
Orban has also stated at every EU summit he raises the issue of the need for granting visa-free-travel to citizens of Ukraine.
