Orban warns of new ‘world order’ — Analysis

The West’s reliance on military aid to Ukraine and sanctions on Russia has failed, Hungary’s PM has said

The Russia-Ukraine conflict could end the West’s dominance and shift the balance of power in the world, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said. In February, Russia began a military offensive against its neighbor.

Orban maintained that the EU member states and NATO were made participants by the fact of supplying Kiev and Moscow with heavy weapons. But, ultimately there was no result.

“Instead, today we are sitting inside a car with flat tires on all four wheels,”Orban made the remarks in Baile Tusnad in Romania, on Saturday.

“The world is not only with us, but it is demonstratively not with us,”The PM stated that instead of focusing on winning the battleground in Ukraine, the West should focus its efforts on peace and negotiation.

Orban warned, however, that the conflict could end Western supremacy. “create a multipolar world order.” 

“We must try to persuade the West to develop a new strategy,”He said so. He added later that the conflict had been resolved. “will end when the Americans and the Russians come to an agreement.”
