Viktor Orbán wears a scarf with a print of “Great Hungary”

The Prime Minister of Hungary was responsible for carrying out the first diplomatic incident of the World Cup. the controversial Viktor Orbán appeared in a video wearing a scarf that has a map of “Great Hungary” as its print, an ancient configuration of the country before the First World Warand which includes the territory that is now part of the neighboring states of Austria, Slovakia, Romania, Croatia, Serbia and Ukraine. The reason for the attrition is that in this montage, some territories of the Ukraine – at war with Russia since February – appear as part of Hungary. The record, made during a friendly between Hungary and Greece, drew fury from Ukrainians and Romanians, who urged Orbán to apologize for the incident. “Viktor Orbán came to a football match wearing a scarf, which depicts Hungary with part of the Ukrainian territory. The promotion of revisionist ideas in Hungary does not contribute to the development of Ukrainian-Hungarian relations and does not comply with the principles of European policy,” said Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Oleg Nikolenko’s. “A Hungarian ambassador will be invited to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, to the knowledge of which the act of Viktor Orban will be brought. We are waiting for an official apology from the Hungarian side and a rebuttal to the zazihans about the territorial integrity of Ukraine, ”he added. The two countries have clashed repeatedly in recent years over what Hungary has said are restrictions on the right of ethnic Hungarians living in Ukraine to use their native language, especially in education, after Ukraine passed a law in 2017 restricting the use of minority languages ​​in schools.
