Spokeswoman: Transcarpathian Hungarians can count on Hungary ‘through thick and thin’

Hungarians living in Transcarpathia can count on Hungary "through thick and thin", just as a child depends on its mother, government spokeswoman Alexandra Szentkiralyi said in Choma (Tiszacsoma), in western Ukraine on Saturday.

Celebrating a children’s day organised by the Transcarpathian Hungarian Large Families Association, Szentkiralyi said the value of community, of “belonging somewhere” and “counting on each other” appreciates in times of crisis.

She said local Hungarians could count on the support of Hungary “in rain or shine”, just as in recent years and months.

Winding up a two-day visit to Transcarpathia, Szentkiralyi visited a charity centre and home for the elderly run by the Transcarpathian Reformed Church in Berehove (Beregszasz).
