Ukrainian Vice-Prime-Minister: Hungary blocking development of relations between Kyiv and NATO

Budapest is blocking the effective development of Ukraine's relations with the North Atlantic alliance due to their displeasure with the paragraph on language in the Ukrainian law on education.

According to the Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration, Ivanna Klympush-Tsintsadze, Ukraine will try to solve this problem with the support of other NATO members, since Budapest "blocks the effective development" of things planned between Ukraine and the Alliance.

"Ukraine is concerned with Hungary's ultimatum, which it is demonstrating due to its discontent with the language clause in the law on education. All our attempts to conduct a dialogue have been unsuccessful because Hungary is unprepared for any dialogue," she said.

Earlier, it was reported that Hungary blocked the meeting of the NATO-Ukraine Commission.

In September, the Verkhovna Rada adopted a law on education, which provides for the reforms to the education system in Ukraine. The law, among other things, determines that the language of the educational process in educational institutions should be the State language.

The law caused a wave of resentment in Hungary. The Foreign Minister of the country stated that in response to this, Hungary would "strike painfully at the future of Ukraine."
