Hungary’s Cabinet Braces for Open War in Ukraine, Figyelo Says - Bloomberg

NoBC4U Note: I wouldn't exactly classify it as a war between Ukraine and Russia. It's more of a war between a radical ideology in Ukraine and a people who just want to live in peace. But that doesn't take away from the fact that other countries are beginning to get worried about events in Ukraine.

Hungary is in a “war zone” and must prepare for an escalation in the armed conflict between neighboring Ukraine and Russia, said Janos Lazar, the minister in charge of the Prime Minister’s Office.

“We absolutely can’t exclude the possibility of a real war between Ukraine and Russia,” Lazar, who also oversees the country’s secret services, said in an interview published in weekly Figyelo today. The conflict may yet enter a “much worse stage” as war is the most likely scenario, Lazar said according to the transcript of the interview.

Troops in Ukraine, home to more than 100,000 ethnic Hungarians, are fighting pro-Russian rebels as talks on a lasting peace deal have been delayed. Russia’s government denies any involvement in the conflict which has killed more than 4,600 and roiled the two countries’ economies.

The Cool War

The Hungarians are living as “hostages” in Ukraine, which is “lethally dangerous,” Lazar said. A U.S. decision to provide arms to Ukraine would be “very dangerous and distressing,” Lazar said, adding that Hungary won’t transport any arms itself.
