Fidesz MEPs: Ukraine’s EU integration could lead to Europe’s ‘collapse’

Ahead of an EU summit set to discuss the issue of Ukraine's EU integration, MEPs of ruling Fidesz said in a joint video on Thursday that "a forced accession" could lead to Europe's collapse.

In the video posted on Fidesz’ Facebook page, Tamas Deutsch said “it is absolutely clear that neither Ukraine nor the European Union are prepared for starting accession talks”. “We want a successful Europe, not its destruction,” he said.

Balazs Hidveghi said with Ukraine’s integration at least nine EU member states including Hungary would no longer be eligible for funding and would become a net contributor to the common budget. “Ukraine has received from the EU 40 billion euros in total in subsidies, loans and guarantees since the outbreak of the war. This is more than the amount Hungary, Croatia and Slovenia have received combined over the past seven years,” he said.

Kinga Gal said Brussels’ current proposal on the integration failed to ensure minorities equal rights and opportunities and the free use of their mother tongue.
