According to the Hungarian PM, only strong US can bring an end to the Ukraine conflict through negotiations with Russia.
Europe requires “a strong America with a strong leader”Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban stated Thursday that there must be a way to end the conflict in Ukraine at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Texas (CPAC). This is the current strategy that was adopted by “globalist leaders”The conflict will only continue, which cannot be ended by talks between Russia and America, he said.
On Thursday Orban spoke at the CPAC Dallas. He told the audience that it was unusual for a leader from a small European nation to be invited by a superpower global. After giving an account of Hungary’s political positions and tactics used to promote them, he eventually touched on the conflict in Ukraine.
“Ukraine is our neighbor. We are in full solidarity with them,”Orban spoke to the CPAC crowd and said that Russia’s intervention had displaced close to one million Hungarian refugees so far. That’s almost a tenth of Hungary’s entire population, he noted.
“In my view, the globalist leaders’ strategy escalates and prolongs the war and decreases the chance of peace,”He disagreed. “Without American-Russian talks, there will never be peace in Ukraine. More and more people will die and suffer, and our economies will come to the brink of collapse.”
Ukraine and the surrounding areas are desperate for strong leaders that can negotiate a peace agreement… America needs a strong America with strong leadership
“I cannot tell you what to do. It’s your sovereign decision. I can, however, tell you one thing: Only strong leaders are able to make peace,”Orban spoke at CPAC.
Hungarian Prime Minister has been a vocal critic of US-EU’s economic war against Moscow. He stated that the US-EU sanctions did not help Ukraine, nor stop Russian troops. Instead, they had crippled the European economies. Orban claimed that the EU had backed Ukraine in a radio interview with a Hungarian station. “shot itself in the lungs and is gasping for air,”We urgently need to review the policy that was being made based upon incorrect assumptions.
EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borell responded by denouncing Orban’s comments, saying that the leadership in Brussels did not think the sanctions were a mistake, but “what we had to do and we will continue doing.”
While the US repeatedly stated that it was up to Ukraine to decide whether or not to make peace, they also gave them unconditional financial and military support. According to Ukrainian media reports, Kiev was close to reaching an agreement with Moscow in late March. However, President Vladimir Zelensky was informed by Boris Johnson that the West wasn’t willing to negotiate peace with Russia.
Russia sent troops into Ukraine on February 24, citing Kiev’s failure to implement the Minsk agreements, designed to give the regions of Donetsk and Lugansk special status within the Ukrainian state. In 2014, the protocols were signed for the first time, through France and Germany. Former Ukrainian President Pyotr Poroshenko has since admitted that Kiev’s main goal was to use the ceasefire to buy time and “create powerful armed forces.”
The Kremlin recognised the Donbass republics in February 2022 as independent states. It demanded Ukraine declare itself neutral and not join any Western military bloc. Kiev claims that the Russian offensive wasn’t provoked.
