Hungary continues to rage over a law passed in Ukraine forcing all education to be conducted in the Ukrainian language. There are 150,000 Hungarians and multiple schools in Ukraine, taught in Hungarian.
Hungarian Foreign Affairs Minister Peter Szijjarto said after a meeting with EU counterparts on Monday that he “made it very clear that until this law changes, we will block and boycott all initiatives made by Ukraine, and all initiatives which are important for Ukraine,” writes AP.
Szijjarto said Budapest will also block any conclusions at an upcoming EU-Eastern Partnership summit next month.
Romania, Moldova, and Poland have also been upset over the law but Hungary has been the most forceful in pushing back against the legislation.
