In case if the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs fails to recall its consul from the village of Berehove (the Zakarpattia region), the Ukrainian government is going to suggest him leave the country.
“Ukraine’s position has always been consistent and clear. The Ukrainian government was the one that offered its Hungarian counterparts to recall Berehove-based consul in connection with the violation of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations and Ukrainian laws. If they fail to recall [the consul], we are going to make a decision on our own that he must leave the territory Ukraine and stop its activities in Ukraine,” spokesperson for the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry Mariana Betsa Monday told.
Ukrainian media earlier reported about the issuance of Hungarian passports to Ukrainian citizens at the Hungarian consulate in the town of Berehove in Ukraine’s Zakarpattia region. A video was posted showing Ukrainians getting Hungarian passports and taking an oath calling Hungary their homeland.
