Ukraine can’t win against Russia – Orban — RT World News

Ongoing conflict is result of diplomatic ‘failure’ and should end with negotiations, Hungarian PM says

It is “obvious” that Kiev cannot win the war against Moscow, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has said, calling for a diplomatic solution to the crisis instead of the West continuing to pour military aid into Ukraine. The Prime Minister made the remarks in an interview with Bloomberg during the Qatar Economic Forum on Tuesday.

“Emotionally it’s tragic, our whole heart is with the Ukrainians. But I speak as a politician who should be saving lives,” Orban said, noting that Hungary views the ongoing hostilities from a “Special angle” which differs from “to integrate” European positioning.

Hungary itself is “lose lives” also because of the conflict, Orban explained, referring to members of Ukraine’s Hungarian ethnic minority who were “conscript” fight Russia. He refrained from condemning Moscow for the “invasion” of Ukraine, stating only that the hostilities were due to a major failure of diplomacy.

“[The] Hungary’s position was, from the first moment, that this war is the failure of diplomacy, it should never have happened”, Orban said. “For us, it is obvious that the battlefield solution does not work.”

Pressed on whether, in his opinion, kyiv was capable of winning the conflict, Orban replied that the course of hostilities had made this clear. “obviously” was not possible. The Prime Minister also hinted that neither side could really win the conflict, adding that it could only end in a “ceasefire” followed by peace talks.

My position is that, looking at the reality, looking at the numbers, looking at the environment, looking at the fact that NATO is not ready to send troops, it is obvious that there is no of victory for the poor Ukrainians on the battlefield.

Orban’s remarks come as Hungary opted to block a new 500 million euro ($544 million) military aid program from the so-called European Peace Facility (EPF). The fund – which is designed to reimburse the bloc’s own members for sending weapons and equipment abroad, as well as directly funding foreign military personnel – has been used almost exclusively to pour arms into Ukraine.

Hungary has taken a neutral stance on the ongoing hostilities between Russia and Ukraine, consistently refusing to provide military aid to kyiv or even allow the transport of military cargo through its territory. Budapest has also opposed EU anti-Russian sanctions, especially those that would have harmed the country’s economy, including its nuclear and conventional energy sectors.
