The Situation in Transcarpathia Intensifies

Fears that Kiev is in a position to try and repeat the ‘Donbass Scenario’ in Transcarpathia do not seem to be without grounds. Consequently, those behind the Carpathian Mountains are talking about federalisation increasingly emphatically... The demands of the Rusyns and Hungarians in Transcarpthia are based on a solid legal foundation, and they share a common goal and a common threat. The common threat is Ukraine, and the situation is intensifying. There have been repeated instances of the destruction of Ukrainian state symbols in Uzhhorod and Mukachevo, explosions in the local offices of PrivatBank, and demonstrations by Transcarpathian residents against mobilisation for war – everything is leading to the fact that the issue of granting Transcarpathia the status of an autonomous federal entity could come to a head...

US Imposes Sanctions against Hungarian Citizens

...The US decision to impose sanctions against some Hungarian politicians, businessmen and tax officials has evoked a shock reaction in Budapest. Even the European Commission has not dared to do anything similar, no matter it has many times accused Hungarian Prime Minister Victor Orban of violating EU regulations and standards. No wonder! There is something important at stake – the fate of the most important endeavor ever undertaken since the Second World War. The goal is to use sanctions and other means of pressure to subjugate Russia and make it serve the vital interests of the West. Hungary has happened to be a «weak link» among the European Union’s ranks...

New Сracks in the anti-Russian Front

The anti-Russian colours that the policies of the European Commission and the US administration are painted in regarding the introduction of economic sanctions against Russia are slowly losing their lustre and beginning to peel off. Within the European Union there are pockets of internal resistance to the anti-Russian policy that are particularly noticeable against the feverish attempts by Brussels to force Serbia and other countries, where the mirage of joining the EU still seems to be a bit like reaching the Promised Land, to join in with the sanctions...

Plight of Romanians and Hungarians in Ukraine

The independent Ukraine boasts a rather short history. The relations with minorities have never been a feather in the hat of Kiev authorities. The real state of things was largely muted to make it a smouldering problem. The «national revolution» has exacerbated the situation to the boiling point, especially talking about Hungarians and Romanians...

Hungary to Increase Russian Gas Supplies

Hungary has reached an agreement with Gasprom on increased gas supply to replenish the reserves of the country during the autumn-winter period, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said after the talks with Gazprom CEO Alexey Miller. The country’s gas storage facilities are currently 61% filled. Increasing Russian gas supplies is the only way to improve the situation. The decision should have been taken a long time ago. Some disagree. There are also those who express discontent with the Budapest’s decision to suspend reverse flow supplies to Ukraine...

Hungarian Factor. Transcarpathian Fragment of Ukrainian Patchwork

The “strange armistice” in Donbass and the upcoming parliamentary election in Ukraine have made pale the events in Transcarpathia, the region where the situation can hardly be called tranquil. The radical Ukrainian nationalism has become decisive for shaping the new regime’s policy, the reunification of Crimea with Russia, the mobilization of Ukrainians to fill the ranks of those who take part in the punitive operation against Novorossia – all told these factors have given impetus to separatist trends in the Transcarpathian region. Ukrainian MPs have granted self-rule to parts of two eastern regions while Budapest strongly supports the demands of Hungarian minority to grant special status to Transcarpathia.

The Polish-American Landmine under the Visegrad Group

Conflicts within the European Union are continuing to intensify, and one of the most successful regional projects in Europe – the Visegrad Group – is at risk... Rather than associating themselves with the policy of Brussels and Warsaw regarding Ukraine, Budapest, Prague and Bratislava are discussing the economy, calculating their losses as a result of anti-Russian sanctions, and even criticising the European Union. Warsaw’s dissatisfaction with the course of events is growing. A lengthy article published in the leading Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza on 19 September puts the question bluntly: why is the Visegrad Group not united in its condemnation of Russia, and why is it not hurrying to rally its members around Poland as the main defender of Ukraine? Hungarians, Czechs and Slovaks are accused of collective amnesia, what the newspaper calls exaggerated trade and economic links with Russia...

EU twists the arms of candidates

Obediently continuing to follow America’s lead, the European Union is stepping up pressure on non-EU member countries to force them to join anti-Russian sanctions. As leverage, they are using their plans, expectations and misconceptions of European integration... It is unsurprising that the European Union has hurried to force events, although not to reduce tensions in their own relations with Moscow, but to create new dividing lines and ‘trade fronts’... According to Viktor Orban, Poland and the Baltic states are predominantly considering the Russian question in terms of security, while Hungary sees Russia as a business partner and regards other aspects of the current situation as secondary.

Visegrad group to Become a Permanently Deployed EU-NATO Rapid Response Force Reinforced by Ukraine

...On 21 March 2014, European Union Heads of State and Government and Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk signed the political provisions of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. The agreement commits both parties to promote a gradual convergence toward the EU's Common Security and Defense Policy and European Defence Agency policies. The V4 is an important step linking Ukraine – EU military structure, which depends on and closely aligns its activities with NATO. The first step on the way is joining the Visegrad Battle group military unit. Visegrad Group defence ministers made the decision at a meeting on June 1 before the formal meeting of NATO defence ministers in Brussels... Slovakia, as the V4 President, will promote close cooperation of military intelligence services and that cooperation will be extended by Romania and the Baltic countries (Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia)...

Carpathian Hungarians Demand Autonomy

For a long time the fate of ethnic Hungarians in neighboring countries has long been a delicate issue for Hungary. The Victor Orban's government has allowed many of them to obtain Hungarian citizenship and vote in Hungarian elections. «Hungarians of the Carpathian Basin are entitled to dual citizenship, community rights and autonomy», the Hungarian Prime Minister said on May 10, «This is the stance we will represent in international politics.» According to him, the issue of ethnic Hungarians was especially topical due to the situation in neighboring Ukraine, where around 200,000 ethnic Hungarians live, who are entitled to Hungarian citizenship and also the right to self-administration. «This is our clear expectation from the new Ukraine which is taking shape now», Orban said...

«Ukraine is Waiting for Solutions to Its Problems from Everyone but Itself»

At trilateral talks held in Brussels on 30 October, Russia, Ukraine and the European Commission reached an agreement on Russian gas supplies to Ukraine and gas transit to Europe. It is a temporary solution to the problem, since the agreement only covers the next five months – until the end of March 2015. Shortly before this, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso made it clear that emergency lending to Ukraine, including for the payment of its Russian gas debts, would not exceed €790 million (Ukraine is asking for €2 billion). Money for Ukraine can only be taken out of the pockets of European taxpayers. But European taxpayers are already disgruntled. «I get the feeling that Ukraine is waiting for solutions to its problems from everyone but itself», declared Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico during talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel...
