“In the Ukrainian media there is practically no positive news about the Hungarian community, they consider their enemies, as well as Hungary,” said Brenzovich.

“It is very difficult to tolerate what is happening at the state borders, and we see that these measures are clearly aimed against the Hungarians. Never has the situation of the Hungarians in the history of independent Ukraine was not so bad,” said Brenzovich.
