Government official: Hungary prepared to use all available means to help Ukraine

Hungary is prepared to use all available means to help Ukraine, foreign ministry state secretary Levente Magyar said at talks with the mayor of western Ukraine's Lviv on Tuesday.

Hungary is prepared to take in and treat a large number of injured Ukrainian children and wounded soldiers, Magyar said.

The country is also welcoming Ukrainian university and college students who have been forced to leave their homeland or have had to interrupt their studies, he said.

Hungary is also prepared to expand its humanitarian aid scheme to western Ukraine, the state secretary said, noting that the Hungarian Interchurch Aid has an office in Lviv through which the Hungarian government carries out its aid programme.

Mayor Andriy Sadoviy showed Magyar the conditions in Lviv and told him that more than five million refugees had passed through the city since the start of the war. He thanked Magyar for Hungary’s support, saying the city was prepared to cooperate with the Hungarian Interchurch Aid’s western Ukrainian office.

Magyar also met Maxim Kozitsky, the county’s military governor, to discuss the assistance offered by Hungary.

Kozitsky thanked Hungary for having taken in one million Ukrainian refugees.
