Menczer: New Ukraine law ‘far from restoring 2015 rights’

The Hungarian government will "thoroughly examine" legislation passed by Ukraine's parliament on Friday, but "it is already clear that the law is far from restoring the 2015 rights" of the Hungarian minority, Tamas Menczer, the foreign affairs state secretary, said on Facebook.

The Hungarian government will monitor implementation of the new law, Menczer said.

Late on Friday, the Ukrainian parliament adopted a law on ethnic minorities aimed to restore their earlier rights in a number of areas, with the exception of ethnic Russians.
