Mi Hazank rejects Ukraine EU candidacy

The radical Mi Hazank (Our Homeland) party on Friday said it rejected the European Union candidacy granted to Ukraine, saying the country was "unprepared".

Mi Hazank leader Laszlo Torockai called it “shocking” that at the EU summit this week, Prime Minister Viktor Orb├ín “voted for granting candidate status [to Ukraine] without a single objection or condition, for example demanding a guarantee to ensure the collective rights of Hungarians living in the country”.

Meanwhile, “it is clear” that Ukraine is not prepared for the candidacy, he said.

He insisted that a multitude of “corruption cases”, the “mafia state” and Ukraine’s intention to have other countries pay for post-war reconstruction disqualified it from EU candidacy, as did its treatment of “its indigenous state founding minorities”.
