Ukraine should abandon its hypocritical and anti-Hungarian policy

"Jobbik believes the Ukrainian government has reached the peak of hypocrisy through Minister of Foreign Affairs Pavlo Kimkin's statement made in the Lower Carpathians yesterday, according to which the Ukrainian state will punish Ukrainian citizens who have passports of other countries as well, and will also implement joint customs control at the Ukrainian-Hungarian border to prevent any alleged misuse." stated Márton Gyöngyösi, Jobbik's vice president and vice chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Hungarian National Assembly in his press release on Tuesday.


This is an outrageous measure from a government that got into power through a coup d'état orchestrated by Western secret services and which abounds with members that have multiple citizenships.
 
It is well-known that Ukrainian Finance Minister Natalia Ann Yareshko has US, Minister of Trade Aivaras Abromavicius has Lithuanian while Minister of Health Alexander Kvitashvili has Georgian passport in addition to their Ukrainian citizenships hastily granted before their appointment to their current posts. Besides, individuals with double citizenships were also appointed to the highest posts in the administration of interior affairs. State Secretary of the Ministry of Interior Affairs Eka Zguladze has Georgian, Ronald W. Glensor, a leader of the Ukrainian police has US citizenship,  while Zurab Adeishvili, the chairman of the Ukrainian anti-corruption committee is a dual citizen of Georgia and Ukraine. It is also well-known that Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseni Yatseniuk, Kiev Mayor Vitali Klitscko and the president of the Ukrainian National Bank, Valeria Gontareva have dual citizenships, too.
 
In Jobbik's view, the statements made by Foreign Minister Klimkin seem to have a special significance due to the location in the Lower Carpathians and the issue of a joint customs control with the Hungarian authorities. "In such context, it's hard to interpret these statements in any other way than as an open threat against the Hungarian community in the Lower Carpathians, assisted and approved by the Hungarian government." added the MP.
 
As he wrote: "Jobbik calls upon the Ukrainian government to abandon this hypocrisy and to stop demanding others to meet such regulations that its own ministers violate, as well as to discontinue intimidating the Hungarian community in the Lower Carpathians." Jobbik also calls upon the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to reveal what kind of pact and under what pressure it made with the Ukrainian power at the expense of the Hungarian community in the Lower Carpathians, as well as to take a firm stance to defend the rights of its own citizens.



They welcome Putin's visit

"In Jobbik's view, the summit of Hungary's and Russia's leaders is important and useful, since the party has always been supporting the policy of opening to the East and considers Russia as a strategic partner in economic, energy-related, political and cultural issues as well." stated Márton Gyöngyösi, the deputy leader of Jobbik's parliamentary group in his press release on Tuesday.
 
In the party's opinion, the Ukrainian crisis makes bilateral geostrategic discussions even more important. With regard to these discussions, the Hungarian government should be subject to criticism for its exclusive self-determination as a member of the Western alliance system, since the country should rather develop an individual standpoint due to the issue of the Hungarian community in the Lower Carpathians.



Peace has the priority


The patriotic party considers peace and neutrality as the fundamental and most important interest of Hungary as well as the only manageable way to avoid another world war." added Márton Gyöngyösi in his press release.
 
"Just as the lift of the anti-Russia sanctions should be the common interest of the European states and Hungary." he commented.
 
The enhancement of the Paks Nuclear Plant, the issue of the Southern Stream as well as our commercial and economic interests all require us to prevent Hungary-Russia relations from deteriorating. Jobbik also warns the leftist political parties to show self-restraint, on account of their hysteria-mongering today about Putin's potential visit to Hungary.
 
The Tuesday issue of daily newspaper "Népszava", referring to information received from several independent sources, wrote that Vladimir Putin was supposed to visit Budapest in March.
