Hungary firmly believes that starting EU accession talks would be premature, Janos Boka said on Facebook, adding that Hungary’s position was based on principle.

He said financial support for Ukraine needed to be provided outside the EU budget with contributions and “clear political guidance” from member states.

“Linking the funds owed to the Hungarian people and support for Ukraine in any way is an attempt to blackmail Hungary, which the government rejects,” Boka said.

The minister also said he had given an interview to Financial Times discussing the Hungarian government’s position on Ukraine.
